|Inderal And Migraines|
Medicine to prevent migraines may be helpful if your headaches happen more than twice a month or if your headaches make it hard for you to work and function. Examples of medicines used to prevent migraines include, propranolol (brand name: Inderal), timolol, divalproex and some antidepressants.
People with more severe headache may need headache medicine. A medicine called ergotamine can be effective alone or in combination with other medicines. Dihydroergotamine is related to ergotamine and can be helpful. Other prescription medicines for migraines include sumatriptan, zolmitriptan, naratriptan, rizatriptan, almotriptan, eletriptan and frovatriptan. While Inderal and migraine share a 'cure and ailment' relationship, it is always best to consult a doctor before going for any medication.
