OTC Migraine Medicine

Migraines run in my family. My mom and sister get them, and I never understood their agony until I got my first migraine last year. I was astonished that a headache could also lead to stomachache, being unable to stand upright, to be near *any* light, blurred vision...it's scary!

Luckily, I don't get them very often. When I do, I take OTC that is specifically for migraines (however, I did compare the label, and the "migraine" version was no different from the "extra strength").

Do you take over-the-counter medication for your migraines? What about prescription medication, or are there some more natural remedies that you have found to be helpful?
