Patient Comments: Migraine - Treatment

What kind of treatment do you get for your migraines? Does it help?

Comment from: Loes, 75 or over Female (Patient) Published: April 25

After years and years of suffering migraines, almost weekly and taking sumatriptan and Voltaren (not always successful), I have found the cause and consequently the solution to my problem. After a stay in hospital during which I developed a bowel problem, I was prescribed Laxsol and other laxatives to regulate my bowel movement. Result? The migraines have disappeared 95%. What a relief! Maybe a tip for other migraine sufferers.
