Migraine Headache FAQs (cont.)

What can be done to prevent migraine headaches?

Migraineurs should identify and avoid migraine triggers. This may include avoiding certain types of foods and certain emotional situations. If missing meals triggers headaches, the migraineur should make every effort to eat on a regular basis. In some instances, the use of biofeedback (a technique that helps people learn to have some degree of control over certain "automatic" body functions like heart rate) may help lessen the severity and frequency of attacks.

Additionally, migraineurs should remember to take any prescribed medications at the dosages and times the doctor specifies.
