Migraine Headache (cont.)

Migarine Headache Prognosis

Patient Comments

After the headaches are under control, the prognosis is very good. Patience is key. As noted previously, it may take several attempts before an effective treatment plan is found.

No one treatment or drug is effective for every person. A drug that works well for one migraineur may not provide any relief for another. A combination of different medications is sometimes needed to treat resistant headaches.
