Is Your Headache a Migraine?

By

Michael John Coleman once had a migraine headache that lasted for 21 days. "The first five days, you do not sleep," said Coleman, executive director of MAGNUM, a national migraine group. "You become almost in an altered state ... It was a horrifying place to be."… Drugs that can prevent migraines include cardiovascular drugs -- such as beta blockers and calcium-channel blockers -- and certain antidepressants, according to the nonprofit Mayo Clinic. Ask your doctor for more information or to get a prescription.
