Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
Many, many things can cause ocular migraine to occur or to become more frequent and, yes, stress is one of them.
There are a number of drugs to treat migraines, the majority of them are by prescription.
As far as over the counter treatments I find that caffeine, like drinking a pepsi quickly, can break my migraines before they get going strong.
On the Rx front there are pain relieving meds such as advil, excedrin migraine, triptans such as imitrex and ergot compounds such as migergot.
Also medicines such as compro can be helpful for the nausea and strong narcotics, such as morphine and codeine for pain
There are also drugs you can take on a daily basis to decrease the frequency or stop the ocular migraines. There are many types. Beta blockers, such as inderal, antidepressants, such as Pemelor and anti-seizure medications such as topamax have all been found to be useful.
If you are thinking of trying any of these treatments I suggest you consult with a neurologist who treats headaches.
Does this make sense to you?
