RESCUE TREATMENT FOR MIGRAINE HEADACHE IN EMERGENCY DEPARTMENT PART 2: ROLE OF ANTIEPILEPTIC, MAGNESIUM, CORTICOSTEROIDS, AND DISCHARGE CARE

SEPTEMBER 2014 - VOL.8 | REVIEWS ARTICLE

Migraine is a common chronic neurological disorder, associated with a high disease-related  disability and may lead migraineurs to the Emergency Department (ED). The efficacy of valproate,  magnesium sulfate, corticosteroids as the rescue treatment for migraine headaches in ED has been  reviewed. Nearly half of patients with migraine headaches discharged from the ED had received neither  a specific diagnosis nor appropriate patient education. Hence, discharge planning and a migraine  education program at the ED was also highlighted in this article.
