Tylenol and a few glasses of wine, Vicodin, Demerol, and a few others dont' cut it, so hopefully your doctor will suggest some of the meds that are discussed on this site (see the medical info button on the left).

For preventatives... verapamil, prednisone, lithium, and topomax are among the favorites. For abortives... Oxygen (10-12 litres /minute and non-rebreather mask), Imitrex (injection), and Maxalt (quick dissolving) are among the favorites. There are others, and of course what works for one person won't work for another... but my point is don't let your doctor send you home with Vicodin or Oxycontin... they don't work.
