Do over-the-counter medications help the physician manage migraine headache? Curr Pain Headache Rep 2002 Apr;6(2):156-61 PMID: 11872188

Pubmed ID



The use of over-the-counter-medication in migraine treatment is commonplace. They are often used in addition to physician-prescribed medications and may be used without the full knowledge of the physician. Although considerable evidence suggests their efficacy in migraine treatment, they are rarely used to maximal levels of efficacy and safety. A review of the evidence for these treatments is important for cost effective, well-tolerated, and specific treatment of migraine headache.
