Yes. If you have common or classic migraine they have medications specifically designed to eliminate migraine. For example sumatriptan can be given sub cutaneously at a higher dose, or DHE 45 can be given as an iv drip Depending on symptoms there is toradol IM etc. please get back to me with questions and I will reply or if satisfied please remember to rate my service by clicking on the rating stars.

Alternatively, if you want to stay out of the ER, I can talk to you about meds to take if you have them available, like any triptan, and how to manage the headache. Dr Frank
