    Best Headache Book I've Found

    I have read through most of the headache books that I've been able to find. This book is a cut above the rest of them. I just got the new edition of Headache Help, and it does go into great detail about all the medications I'm interested in. What separates this book from the rest is the incredible length and depth which the book delves into about all these various headache medications. It is a great book to use to help you with your doctor, and as a reference for the different headache medicines and approaches.
