What type of migraine and headache treatment does Nurx prescribe?

Nurx offers both pain-relieving medication (which is taken at the beginning of a migraine or headache to help alleviate symptoms) and preventive medications (which are taken daily to help to reduce the severity or frequency of headaches and migraines.)

After reviewing the information you provide in our online intake form and your video assessment, a trained and licensed Nurx medical provider will create a treatment plan for you. If you have taken medication for headaches or migraines in the past, please note that in your online intake, and let our team know whether you did or didn’t find those medications effective.
