you r right
Quote:
The beta blocker propranolol has proved effective for preventing migraines.
Quote:
Calcium channel blockers especially verapamil also may be helpful in preventing migraines and relieving symptoms from aura.
Quote:
In addition lisinopril has been found useful in reducing the length and severity of migraines.
