Acute Migrane Infusion Therapy

Acute migraine infusion therapy is a treatment approach that involves the intravenous administration of medications to relieve severe migraine attacks quickly. It typically consists of a combination of medications, such as anti-inflammatory drugs, anti-nausea medications, and pain relievers, delivered directly into the bloodstream. This therapy aims to provide rapid relief from migraine symptoms and reduce the duration and intensity of the migraine episode.


Let’s embark on the journey of Sophie, a brave soul who endured a three-day-long severe migraine. The pain was unbearable, the nausea was crippling and the vomiting was incessant.

It was a story of agony. Until she stepped into Urgent Care Brisbane, there was no end in sight. Her story of recovery with us will give you an insightful glimpse into our acute migraine therapy.

Acute Migraine: The Unseen Terror

Contrary to popular belief, migraines are more than just ‘bad headaches’. They are debilitating neurological episodes marked by a severe, throbbing headache, usually affecting one side of the head.

Migraines are far from a simple ailment. They often come with uncomfortable symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to light and sound.

An acute migraine, like Sophie’s, can trap you in a state of misery for hours or even days if left untreated. The usual over-the-counter pain medications often fail to relieve severe migraines. This emphasizes the need for professional medical assistance.

Battling Acute Migraines: Our Approach

At Urgent Care Brisbane, we wage a multifaceted war against acute migraines, utilizing the best of modern medical practices:

  1. We use abortive medications to stop migraines quickly. These medications are specifically designed to target the root cause in the brain.
  2. We might suggest preventive medications if you are prone to frequent, severe migraines. These medications are aimed at reducing both the frequency and intensity of your migraines.
  3. Fluid therapy can help treat dehydration due to vomiting. This is done by administering intravenous (IV) hydration. This replenishes lost fluids and electrolytes, such as in the case of Sophie.
  4. Rest and Comfort: We ensure a quiet, calming environment for you to rest while the treatments do their job.


Sophie’s Journey from Pain to Relief

Sophie visited Urgent Care Brisbane. Her treatment began with a thorough assessment of her condition.

The assessment took into account her symptoms, medical history, and overall health. We confirmed that Sophie was in a severe form of acute migraine called status migrainosus. We quickly created a detailed treatment plan for her.

Sophie’s treatment plan included:

  • Abortive medications
  • IV fluid therapy to counter dehydration
  • A serene environment for rest and recuperation


Our dedicated team constantly monitored her recovery, adjusting the treatment as needed. Slowly but surely, Sophie’s relentless pain began to subside, offering her the much-desired respite.
