Getting migraine medications can be a headache with — scheduling a doctor’s appointment and waiting in long lines at the pharmacy. Here at Alpha we’re providing easy, affordable access to your medications from the comfort of your own home. In addition to prescription treatment, here are some home-remedies that can provide temporary relief:

  1. Hot or Cold Compress
    Place a hot or cold compress across your forehead or on the back of your neck. Cold compress can have a numbing effect that reduces the discomfort from the migraine. Hot compress or a warm bath can help relax any tense muscles.
  2. Hydrate
    Dehydration is a common trigger for migraines. Hydrating with fluids can restore your body’s balance of water and electrolytes. Note that caffeine is actually an effective treatment for some migraine sufferers.
  3. Exercise
    Some patients who suffer from migraines claim that certain exercises, such as aerobics, help reduce stress and make them feel better due to the release of endorphins.
  4. Sleep
    On the other hand, some patients are extra sensitive to lights and sounds while experiencing a migraine. Resting in a dark, quiet room may help ease the pain.
  5. Ginger
    Fresh ginger or ginger powder may provide temporary relief for nausea and vomiting, which are common migraine symptoms.

Alpha makes it easy for you to have prescription medications available in advance so you can treat your migraines as quickly, safely, and effectively as possible. You can start your online visit today.
