Headaches in Pregnancy

Show Summary Details


While some women with migraine note an improvement during pregnancy (especially the last two trimesters), many continue to experience headaches, and some suffer an increase in attack frequency and/or severity. These can be intractable, in part due to the restricted choices in pharmacotherapy. The clinical approach to diagnosis and effective management of migraine and other headaches during pregnancy is discussed in this chapter.
