Understanding Migraine and Other Headaches provides information on the causes and diagnoses, as well as preventive measures, effective treatments, and surgical procedures. The book gives an overview of every major type of headache, including the debilitating, nausea-inducing forms of migraine, episodic tension-type headaches (the most common form), chronic daily headaches, and more obscure head-aches such as trigeminal neuralgia and cluster headaches.

The book is intended for those who are burdened by headaches as well as for their families, coworkers, employers, and friends. Written in a lucid and simple style, it is accessible to both lay readers and medical professionals.

In the last two decades, revolutionary new migraine-specific medications have been developed. This book undertakes a comprehensive look at medications for acute "as needed" treatment of headaches and for preventing the onset of an attack. It offers guidelines for assessing headache pain, the level and type of medication needed, possible side effects, and drug effectiveness.

Dr. Stewart J. Tepper, formerly an associate clinical professor of neurology at Yale and director of The New England Center for Headache in Stamford, Connecticut, is now Director of Research for the Center for Headache and Pain at the Cleveland Clinic.
