New Treatments Could Transform the Way Migraine Headaches Are Treated

Updated July 13, 2021

Multiple outlets reported on an editorial published in JAMA co-authored by Melissa L. Rayhill, MD, clinical assistant professor of neurology, discussing new treatments for migraine headache. “There are so many good, migraine-specific acute treatment options now. For some patients, the quest to find something that works can take months or longer. Many will find a safe and effective acute treatment for their migraine headaches after just one visit to their physician’s office, though typically it may take a couple of medication trials over a few weeks to find a good fit.”
