Headache & migraine
Normal saline provides fluids lost from poor oral intake in the setting of accompanying nausea and vomiting and also helps protect kidneys with ketorolac administrations.
Magnesium may help prevent migraine and supplementation can help prevent arterial spasms.
IV magnesium sulfate has been shown to end migraine attack, decrease pain intensity and eliminate accompanying symptoms (nausea and vomiting).
Ketorolac may provide pain relief in as little as 30 minutes, and may last up to 6 hours.
Anti-nausea agents provide relief from nausea and vomiting and may help induce rest and sleep (promethazine).
B-vitamins may help prevent migraine attacks, decrease severity and disability of acute episodes.
