The pain riddle

For about 27 years my husband, now 52, has been suffering from migraine. Years back he had to be confined to bed falling victim to frequent attack that forced him to vomit every now and then. He visited many doctors , used different "pathies" but in vain. All opined that it was classical migraine.

Years rolled on. A friend of mine, a doctor too, prescribed Telmisartan+Amlolodipine ( 40+5). Escitalopram 10 mg and Ativan 1 mg. The prescription brought a dramatic change. The bouts threw inflictions after long gaps and the vomiting gradually disappeared.

Now he is too some extent fine. Should he continue all those drugs life time?
