Effectiveness varies from patient to patient depending on their responsiveness to medication, lifestyle and other factors. Seeking treatment is very important for sufferers.

Treatment not only helps reset this process, but also dulls or eliminates the patient’s pain. If a sufferer goes untreated, migraines can escalate significantly: even becoming daily occurrences.
