Headache-Adviser Newsletter, Issue #002-- Migraine Research Update
January 25, 2008
Hello!

You are receiving this email because you opted in for the newsletter.

Since I last wrote to you there have been some exciting updates in the treatment of migraine.

Have you ever had a headache that lasted over 3 days? (Ha! you say..happens all the time!)

This condition is known as "status migrainosis" or an intractable migraine. It has all the usual features..throbbing pain, aversion to light or sound and nausea.

Well here is some good news.

Keppra, one of the anti-seizure drugs used to treat migraine is now available for infusion..now what does that mean?

Well, if you have a horrible headache, in the emergency room they give you an IV infusion of medications. Keppra has been shown to significantly reduce headache pain in FIFTEEN minutes in 9 out of 10 patients who tried it.

Now how do I know this? I recent completed a pilot study at Dent Headache Center looking at Keppra IV and it's effect on patients in status migrainousis...well basically it worked pretty well.

If you have been on Keppra before or are on it now and it works, this may be an option for you if you have a bad headache.

We hope to publish this information within the next year, and full blown clinical trials may start soon.

So..keep your hopes up! There is new information about treatments popping up all the time

Here's To Headache Free Days!
