However, when administered the same medication, another patient may describe it as ineffective at best, or precipitating unpleasant and undesirable side effects at worst.

Procedure and Benefits
In the United States, 18% of women and 6% of men reported experiencing migraine headaches. Of those, over half described their symptoms as fundamentally affecting daily life. Your North Texas pain management doctor will set a plan of treatment based on your set of symptoms. The Migraine Institute & migraine doctor, Dr. Rodriguez will help you identify patterns in your migraine headaches, evaluate the root causes, and establish a regimen to reduce both the severity and frequency of your migraines.
Analgesics, NSAIDs and Triptans
In many cases, early migraine treatment with over the counter analgesics or non-steroid anti-inflammatory (NSAID) medicines can prevent a migraine from developing. However, for mild to moderate migraines, Dr. Rodriguez may discuss other courses of treatment, such as a class of medications called Triptans. Triptans work by constricting blood vessels that dilate during a migraine, easing the pain. While effective in many patients, Triptans are not suitable for individuals with a history of heart disease, stroke or hypertension. Dr. Rodriguez will counsel you in identifying the correct class of medications.
Variety of Treatment Mediums
Some patients report migraine symptoms so severe that it affects their ability to take the very medication designed to alleviate it. Migraine symptoms like severe nausea prevent effective metabolism of oral treatments. The Migraine Institute will explore a range of administration methods including subcutaneous injections, sublingual tablets or drops placed beneath the tongue, sprays and even patches worn on the skin.
In keeping with The Dallas Pain Relief Center’s focus on conservative treatment, opioid pain relievers are only administered to patients with severe migraines unresponsive to other treatments. If your migraine pain is persistently debilitating, The Migraine Institute offers a possibility of intravenous (IV) treatment with corticosteroids, antinauseants and other medications like Dihydroergotamine (DHE), Propofol and Tramadol. IV treatment is administered to patients on site at the state of the art facility in Plano, Texas.
