When a Migraine goes on like this, it's unlikely that anything you take at home is going to stop it, but it's important that you do get it stopped. It's time to call your doctor. I'd suggest calling now, especially since it's Friday. You certainly don't want to go into the weekend with it.


You definitely want to stop taking the medications you've been taking because taking them more than two or three days a week can make matters worse by causing medication overuse headache. You can read more about that in Medication Overuse Headache - When the Remedy Backfires.


Good luck,
