These top seven pills for prevention are recommended by a neurologist who specializes in migraine headache treatment.
Dr. Brian Loftus is a board certified neurologist in Bellaire, Texas, who specializes in migraine headaches and multiple sclerosis.
He says, “For prevention of migraines – my most frequent seven oral preventatives are zonisamide, duloxetine, candesartan, Topiramate, propranolol, amitriptyline, and Valproic acid.”
What about non-oral prevention of migraines?
Dr. Loftus says, “Non-oral preventatives include pericranial nerve blocks, combined sphenopalatine ganglion/cranial nerve V blocks with Allevio, and intermittent IV magnesium.”
