I just wanted to share with you guys that a study just came out on a new combo drug for migraines that has naproxen and imitrex combined. Apparently 2/3 of the patients saw their migraine disappear within 2 hours of taking the med and remained pain free for the next 24 hours. This is pretty good news IMO!! I don't know what the new combo drug is called, but I'm guessing you could find more info about it by googling it or looking on cnn.com.

I saw it on CNN too.  The new drug is called Trexima but I didn't understand if it was on the market yet or still in the testing stages.  They also talked about taking magnesium, feverfew and butterbur.

Good Luck to anyone who tries it.
