Abortive are used to stop the acute attack, preventives are used to stop the attacks from happening, have you tried O2?

Go ahead and cry, we're here and we ain't leavin'.  Read all of the stuff on the left.  Good preventive treatments are a prednisone and verapamil combo, some like myself have had luck with melatonin, there is also lithium which has worked for some.  Read REad REad.  Get an appt with a neuro.

We understand your pain unfortunately.  My cycle starts in November, I hate November.  I hate everything about November.  I am trying to figure out how to avoid it.  
 
But at least if you are here, we will listen to ya scream and cry.   I just got finished screaming!  
 
Keep trying different prevents and aborts.  It is amazing how something will work for one person and not another.  We all seem to find different things that work.  I discovered hot strong coffee helps me some.

Welcome HunterDon.
 
It sounds like you're using the Imitrex pills. You know there is a spray and injection. They both work alot faster and they do not upset your stomach.
 
Thomas' suggestion about Amerge helped me alot. It's a little slower, but if you take it right away, it usually works.
 
Lots of preventives out there. As someone said already: All the meds work different for each of us.
 
Stick around. This place is insane, but believe it or not, it keeps you from going insane sometimes. Sounds crazy I know.
