Pharmacologic therapy, nondrug therapy, and counseling are keys to effective migraine management

Archives of Family Medicine 2(8): 874-879

The survey results suggested that both patients and physicians believe migraine treatment is elusive and that patients are becoming increasingly frustrated and dissatisfied with treatment outcomes. With increased knowledge of headache and a variety of treatment options, family practice physicians can better educate, counsel, and treat patients.
