Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
This authoritative guide to migraine explains the various causes and triggers that lead to this kind of headache, prescribes actions sufferers can take on their own to avoid migraine -- including low-tyramine diets and regulated sleeping schedules -- and details available drug therapies, such as DHE. If you suffer from migraine headache you will benefit greatly from understanding the source of your pain and the steps you can take to alleviate it, but equally enlightening are chapters on preventative and alternative therapy. The headache history worksheet and headache calendar included in the appendix are useful tools for readers who suspect they suffer from migraine but are as yet undiagnosed, as well as for veteran migraine sufferers still in search of an effective remedy.
