the last really bad one was in Madagascar with home brewed Rum, I thought I would die..
Portuguese wine is "organic" and doesn't give headaches. I think that is because of lower sulfides.

Any wine does an opposite. When people use wine, drugs, or any other chemicals to relax, their bodies refuse relaxing naturally and start demanding chemicals that work. The result is stress that triggers higher stress, and so on, until migraine happens.

I take migraleve as soon as I feel one starting. I still need to spend the day in bed, but with the drug the symptoms are quite tolerable. People who really suffer with migraines often are prescribed amitriptyline in doses between 25-50mg, if you can tolerate the side effects I've heard it is quite effective. I take low dose ami for other reasons and at low doses the side effects are quite benign, obviously there, but not unpleasant. The frequency of my migraines has been reduced since I've been on ami, which is good, a change in dose can trigger one though, as can missing a dose, but then I have other problems that leave me a little more sensitive to the ami than a healthy person.

Just read one of the linked pages-apparently citrus is a migraine trigger for many people. So my suggestion of magnesium citrate might not be such a great idea.

If citrus is a trigger for you, or if you don't know for sure it is not, I would either hunt down magnesium glycinate on the internet or at a health food store. Also, I just saw magnesium gluconate at a CVS, which is a large chain drug store in these parts, so it should be available. The glycinate is chelated, which usually means better absorbed.

Magnesium oxide, the most common form and the cheapest, is the least absorbed, according to the charts I have seen.

If you can't find a combo pill with magnesium, calcium and vitamin D that doesn't contain a citrate or magnesium oxide, you might have to go 3 different pills to avoid the citrate. Up to you, of course.

Good luck which ever way you go.
