try 2 tylenol, 2 aspirin, and 200-300mg of fast acting niacin when you feel the migraine coming on. be sure to wash it down with a caffeine beverage and eat something. hide in a dark room for 30 minutes.

I've had migraines since I was in first grade and since then--short of checking to see if I have a PFO, I've tried everything for prevention and abortion of migraine.
When you cannot lift your head from the bed from the searing pain, phonophobia and photophobia and you're on day two or three of a migraine, You're just to drink a soda, take niacin, two Tylenol, and two aspirin every--what--four hours? You forgot to include the towel I would need to bite to keep from going certifiably insane.
Let me put it another way; you've NEVER had a severe migraine if you think your cocktail of otc medicines (a borderline placebo in the case of Tylenol, mainly useful to prevent drug addicts from injecting whatever narcotic it is mixed with or ruin their livers if they attempt to ingest the tablets in excess) will touch the pain of a real migraine. Sometimes, I think the DEA writes these responses to some of these articles they are so 'Pollyanna-ish' and ill-informed.
