Migraine is a complex condition that may be effectively managed through a tailored treatment approach for each patient. Treating migraine is often a cycle of trial-and-error, and it’s important to encourage patients to have an ongoing dialogue about the impact migraine has on their life.
Migraine can have a significant impact on the lives of people living with the disease as well as on their friends and loved ones. However, many people living with migraine do not discuss the disability they experience with their doctor. You can help your patients improve their quality of life by setting treatment goals and continually assessing their progress.
