Using Targeted Meds for New Headache Patients

In what appears to be today’s theme, James Cottrill from Relieve Migraine Headache blogged about getting the most effective headache treatment sooner in your hunt for headache meds.

Others jump right in to specific headache treatment, like triptans for migraine. The results show that patients whose docs treat headache aggressively from the start have a better eventual outcome.
