At this time, there are no medications on the market that were developed specifically for Migraine and headache prevention. We use medications that were originally developed for other conditions, then noticed to work for Migraine and headache prevention.
Migraine, headache, and pain management specialist Dr. John Claude Krusz is always looking at medications we can use for Migraine and headache management. At the 52nd annual scientific meeting of the American Headache Society (June, 2010), Dr. Krusz presented a research poster entitled, “Lacosamide in the Treatment of Chronic Headache and Migraine Disorders.” The poster was based on research conducted in his practice.
You can find more about the results of this research in Lacosamide (Vimpat) for Migraine and Headache.
