Cluster Headache Preventive Medication
Most patients with cluster headache require daily prophylactic medication because the headaches are extremely severe and difficult to abort. Some patients experience milder cluster headaches, and if oxygen or another abortive is effective, preventive medications may be avoided. The number of headaches per day is also a determining factor, for if patients have only one per day, we may be able to avoid prevention medication. Cluster sufferers, in general, desire to be on preventive medication during the cluster cycle.
