It has been estimated that from 60 to 70 million Americans have experienced some form of headache. Headache is one of the more prevalent problems to be confronted by practitioners today; therefore, it is essential to be aware of the various causes of this problem. This text provides the health-care professional with simple diagnostic methods and criteria to differentiate the various types of headache. Effective headache treatment recommendations, both on an acute and a prophylactic basis, are provided. Up-to-date information on the latest and most effective headache therapies, using both drug and nonpharmacologic regimens, is discussed. The use of algorithms, patient-education materials and forms and tables and figures will assist the clinician in establishing the diagnosis and selecting appropriate therapy. A separate chapter is devoted to the management of headaches in women, including menstrual migraines.
