what they can use to PREVENT migraines
Patients often ask what they can use to PREVENT migraines.
Suggest prophylaxis for patients whose headaches are frequent or severe enough to interfere with their quality of life.
Also recommend prophylaxis for anyone using acute meds...Vicodin, Fiorinal, Excedrin, triptans, etc...more than 2 or 3 days per week. Explain that frequent use can actually make headaches worse.
