Let me tell you, my closest ER is so bad that I have to remember to tell them what to give me. Their usual drug of choice for treatment is morphine - what a joke! For me, the best cocktail is Toradol w/Phenergan for nausea.

If all abortives have failed, I'd recommend calling your prescribing doctor for their advice. If you're having pain at higher-than-normal severity, that's also a reasonable time for the ER. As for drug cocktails, everyone is different. "Migraine" is loose term for a bad headache that encompasses many diagnoses. Many people have severe mental side effects, primarily akisthisa, to phenothiazines (like phenergan). As for toradol, many ERs are hesitant to treat headache patients (especially those who frequent the ER) with opioid medications, so their favorite alternative seems to be toradol. After receiving it so frequently, I just asked my doctor for a script for IM toradol. If that fails, then I'll go the ER.
