WOW, HAVE to share this. After being unable to get out of bed for SIX hours today w/unbelievable migraine & associated nausea I found a miracle cure. My tried-and-true 1 dose of Exedrin Migraine didn't work at all this time (took a second, still didn't work and taking more in 24 hours can damage your liver - though dying from that at one point today seemed like a favorable option)...I remembered I had some Vitamin B3 (Niacin) at home and I know it dilates blood vessels....so I decided to take one 30mg capsule and in under THIRTY MINUTES my nausea & migraine DISAPPEARED!!! Yipeee!!! I was able to totally function after I took that. PLEASE get some Niacin!!Reading this forum also helped...interesting I was having MEGA cravings for pinneapple (ate half a can) and someone on here says that can really help with prevention....but the DRAMATIC improvement came with the Vitamin B3....don't try more than 30mg at a time...too much can dilate vessels so much can give you a REALLY uncomfortably flush that lasts hours. I weigh 107 and took 30mg. Hope this helps LOTS of peeps. Presciption drugs are for sheep and lemmings.

How does dilating blood vessels HELP to get rid of a migraine when migraines are caused by dilated blood vessels? You need to constrict the blood vessels to help and if Niacin dilates them I would think the headache would get worse. Am I missing something?

I believe, that this person had a headache (which is constricted blood vessels) and not a migraine (dilated vessels).

Good to know that B3 works for headaches, but I'm def. not going to try it for migraines! I'd hate to dilate worse!!

I don't mean to bash your niacin cure. But my first thought after reading it was that the double dose of Exedrin probably just kicked in a bit late.
