    8/31/2017 · Medicine
    Headache disorders are common worldwide and often disabling. Until recently, treatments were borrowed from other branches of neurology and medicine. Monoclonal antibodies targeting calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) ligand and receptor, small molecule CGRP receptor antagonist gepants, serotonin1F agonists, new devices to deliver currently available drugs, and neuromodulation devices have recently been in the forefront of headache treatments that are rather specific for various headache disorders. These novel therapies are changing the field of headache medicine. Herein, we update the latest data available for these therapies.

    Alan Rapoport, MD, et al
    Until this one, no book that focused on daily headaches had yet been written specifically for patients. Since this a most disabling form of headache due to its constancy and longevity, our patients need to know the latest in research, diagnosis, and effective treatment for this debilitating condition. This book shares the state-of-the-art knowledge about headache and dispels many common myths.

    Dr. Maurice Preter and Samuel Lieblich contributed the chapter on "Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) Approaches to Headache." Whilst the vast majority of headaches are minor ailments, some patients develop chronic symptoms that have psychiatric dimensions. These symptoms can be immensely challenging to manage and can have a serious impact on the patient’s quality of life. The relationship between headache and psychiatric disease is often rationalized as cause and effect; however, the interplay between the two is complex.
