Evaluation and management of migraine in midlife women

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Migraine is highly prevalent in women and, in addition to the pain component, can be associated with significant disability and loss of productivity. Migraine is often connected to fluctuations in hormones (primarily estrogen), commonly arising in puberty, worsening in perimenopause, and quiescing in late menopause. This Practice Pearl discusses the various types of migraine with respect to hormone fluctuations and details acute as well as preventive treatment.
