My daughter has had migraine headache, a bad one. She throws up, and she has lost weight from this. I am worried about her.

When I am hungry I can't see any light, or focus. When I sleep in the night suddenly I get migraine headaches. I can't tolerate more sun light.

I have been suffering from migraine headache for over 10 years now. I started with Imitrex (sumatriptan) to which after 2 months or thereabouts my body became resistant, though it worked well for me at the time. My doctor later prescribed Zomig (zolmitriptan 2.5 mg) which has been working perfectly well for me until recently when I noticed it took longer time for the medicine to kick in unlike the previous time I had taken it. I became a little worried that I might grow resistant to this one too. I'm looking for opinions and advice on the next action I should take because the migraine is becoming a little more frequent.
