Lately I have been drinking tonic water (by itself) to combat anxiety and cravings for drugs/alcohol. I have been noticing that it helps some with my migraines. It doesn't make them go away completely, but it helps reduce their intensity when I get them, and helps boost the effect of my pain meds (Fioricet, Imitrex, and OTC pain relievers).

It contains Quinine which has many uses, including pain relief (and treating malaria, fun fact).

Just thought I would let everyone know in case you would like to try. It's worth a shot if you are willing to get past the bitter taste.
