Headache Prophylaxis

This article was a compilation of Medline abstracts put together by Mescape Neurology with a link to 18 articles with abstracts. 2 of these dealt with natural substances. One with glucosamine (not a well known use for this substance) and one with fever few (well known and effective for headaches).

A third article reviewed treatment for pediatric migraine and noted that there are no trials currently available supporting pharmacologic management of pediatric migraine. Mysteriously lacking was any manipulative therapies or lifestyle management. A headache patient in my office, so long as they’re ready to make any recommended changes, can almost always find relief. The bias against natural therapeutics is still way too prevalent.
