Guideline Summary for Primary Care Physicians

  • Werner J. Becker (a1) and Irene Worthington (a2)
Abstract

Many of the recommendations in this guideline are summarized here to provide a compact source of information for the primary care physician. More detailed discussion can be found in the main guideline document. Tables 2, 11A and 11B in Section 3 of the main guideline document list all the acute treatment strategies, and the medications used in each one. Table 9 in Section 3 summarizes medications dosages and side effects. Recommendations related to the efficacy of individual drugs are based on a comprehensive targeted review. Expert consensus statements regarding other aspects of acute migraine treatment are based on a general literature review and expert opinion. All patients for whom acute migraine medications are being prescribed should be educated regarding the common migraine triggers and the important lifestyle factors that may potentially influence their migraine disorder.
