When should you be on a preventative medication for migraine?


There are a range of medications and other therapies that can be used to prevent migraine attacks. Discuss with your doctor if they are right for you, but generally, they should be considered if you are having more than 4 migraine attacks per month. If less than 4 attacks a month, you should be able to manage things with abortive medications like triptans and acute medications that treat symptoms like pain killers.
