have a cold

Hey all this might sound like a silly question but I have a cold. I also get chronic migraines and want to know what people with migraines take when they get a cold to not trigger migraines?
any input would be great

Well, the fever reducers/pain relievers should not be taken any more often with a cold than you already do in order to avoid the terrible rebound headaches.

I'm not sure how other people respond to cold medicines, because some migraines are affected by anything that raises your BP, but if you're still able to take pseudoephederine for congestion and it doesn't make the migraines worse, I found that helpful with this one I'm still getting over that caused a secondary bronchitis infection.  I took the stuff under advice from the doctor and it actually helped the cold without aggravating the migraine issues.  This seems weird to me, because any other time nasal congestion can be part of my migraine symptom, but taking pseudoephererine would not help at all with the migraines.  This is better than taking the stuff all the time, as you have to go to the pharmacy counter to get it, even though it's OTC because of the people who make illegal drugs with the stuff.  I only got the smallest package and it looks like that will be enough to only take it temporarily like this.

I use Benadryl all the time for my allergies and have no problems with it interfering with the migraine issues.
