None of the Migraine abortive medications have caffeine in them:
Hope this helps!
I am looking for migraine medication that gives me more than 6 or 9 pills for the month. I take other medicine that is suppose to cut down on the number of migraines and they do, still I need more than for the actual headaches. What I get, that the insurance will pay for, does not carry me through then I end up missing work, laying in the dark room with the ice pack, taking excedering for migraines until finally it goes away or going to the doctor to get a shot.

It may be time to re-evaluate your Migraine prevention plan with your doctor if you are finding the need for that many pills during the month.
I did want to mention that taking Migraine abortive meds such as the triptans or ergotamines or any kind of pain medication (like Excedrin Migraine) -- prescription or over-the-counter -- more than two or three days a week can make matters worse by causing medication overuse headache (MOH), aka rebound. See Medication Overuse Headache - When the Remedy Backfires for more information on this.
And to make it even worse, medication overuse headache is a factor in Transformed Migraine(TM) in almost 80 of people who have TM. When you get a minute, you may want to look at this material Stopping Medication Overuse Can Halt Transformed Migraine.
Cambia, is an FDA approved medication to stop a Migraine attack. Cambia is a powder you mix with water and forms a liquid medication, and for more on this drug, read; New Drug Approved for Migraine Attacks.
I hope this helps,
