The second half covers both acute and preventive headache medications and relevant treatment algorithms and indications, as well as other medical therapies and behavioral interventions for migraine. This clinician’s manual is easy to read and includes numerous tables and other content valuable to all providers wanting a go-to resource on clinical management of migraine. It is an ideal companion for busy general practitioners and neurologists, nurses and mid-level providers, neurology trainees and residents, as well as patients wishing to gain a better understanding of their condition.

Reviews

“The purpose is to detail ‘the assessment and evidence-based treatment of migraines in adults.’ This is a good review for all clinicians who may encounter patients with migraines in their practice. … There are numerous references and the text is well supplemented by many tables. This is a nice, simple primer on migraines, well referenced and easy to read. This would make a great addition to a primary care clinician's library.” (Vincent F. Carr, Doody's Book Reviews, August, 2016)
