Drug Therapy
Usually the pain killers, which are developed by the body itself help to manage migraine. One of these endogenous, i.e. opiates developed by the body, is beta-endorphin. According to some researches people suffering from migraine have significantly reduced b-endorphin content in central nervous system.
The most effective medications for menstrual migraines therapy are nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.
All these methods should be applied two or three days before the beginning of menstruation and the administration is should proceed till the finish of bleeding.
Some patients have migraine attack for more than twenty four hours. There is an opinion that such phenomenon is induced by inflammation of overstrained blood vessels. In this form of migraine there used two forms of the treatment: corticosteroids and dihydroergotamine. The use of corticosteroids is based on their anti-inflammatory action. Patients will be injected with dexamethasone of prolonged action or take tablets during all migrainose status, about two or tree days. For rapid relief of migrainose status some scientists propose to use combination of dihydroergotamine with anti-vomit drugs, such as metoclopramide. The studies aiming to find an optimal method of migrainose status treatment are in process.
The treatment of migraine may be divided into four key categories: general approaches to the treatment, abortive treatment, preventive treatment and pain relief.
The choice of the treatment depends on the type of migraine. In cases of the episodical migraine which is repeated not more than three times a month, preventive treatment is never used. Preventive treatment is indicated for chronic migraine patients with attacks occurring more than two times a month.
Treatment of Migraine in Children
In treatment of migraine in children medical doctors try possibly not to use pharmaceutics as they may influence negatively on growing internal organs and system of child’s body. The medications used for the treatment of migraine in children often manifest apparent side effects. It is connected with small sizes and mass of child’s body. That is why the treatment is worth starting from the medications not stronger than aspirin for pain relief (they are used in the form of candles or liquids for nursery age) and teaching children special anti-pain behavioral methods and progressive muscle relaxation. Up-to-date studies show that both methods have proved to be good in the treatment of chronic headaches in children.
Children easily apprehend these bio-physiologic methods, and then use them effectively for pain relief and prevention of headache attacks. They have an opportunity to refuse pain relieving medications and better than adults use techniques of progressive muscle relaxation. Children are rather quick in the development of so called pain behavior.
In order to teach children to prevent the headache it is very important to teach them to avoid the substances which cause it. Each child has his or her “causative agents” of headache. In order to avoid the agents one should identify them. To achieve such identification the parents should analyze together with the child what may provoke the attack after each attack of headache.
Possibly there will be: interrupted sleep, unfavorable environment (for instance, passive smoking), stress or some food. For most children, as for most adults sleep is the best remedy to manage headache. It is very important to stop headaches as soon as possible, until they do not result in serious problems in the child’s life. It is essential to detect the reasons of headache. Parents should help their children to manage this problem.
If these simple ways have not brought relief to the child consult your doctor in order to choose several medications from those which are used for headache treatment in adults. The same as in cases with adults, the children who have three and more attacks of painful headaches a month will be administered preventive therapy. In this case such medications as cyproheptadine (Periactin) or beta blocker propranolol are used as a daily routine.
Such medications as ergotamine tartrate and its derivates usually are not prescribed to the children, if they have no constant very intensive migraines. As these medications have many bad side effects, caution is needed to use them in children.
