Given that only Botox is approved for chronic migraine, this hasn't come up yet. We don't know if other toxins actually work vs migraine.

Great. Although I'd argue the main reason to study migraine should not be to reduce opioid use but because is really bad!

Here's the explanation . For "me too" drugs this makes sense, but for new therapies not available as a generic there needs to be a better way.

Probably endothelial dysfunction. Even influenza can cause PRES, so given what we know about COVID-19 so far not surprising to see this.

Grabbed this shirt out of my dresser today and realized I never got to wear this on the two trips I had planned this year, so while I may not be in the sky, I am at the grocery store spreading awareness 😊

Of course, diversion is a serious problem. Patient contracts are important. But if a patient only takes opioids 1/week or less, a negative drug screen is meaningless.

Thoughts on this: we have some mostly older, long-term patients who have been getting small amounts of opioids for rescue x years. Usually amounts much lower than for daily use (20 tabs/3 months). We're starting to get denials because of a lack of urine drug screens.

Besides adding more busy work, if a provider is out sick, or has to stay home due to COVID-19, we can't have another provider do the Botox when the patient shows up.

For other US headache doctors: has the need to "authorize" Botox in Medicare patients with chronic migraine caused havoc for your practice? As of July 1st we need to know the exact provider for the procedure, even though we have fellows, NPs doing much of the Botox.

I have to agree. Nerve blocks are WAY underutilized in the ED. When a patients has severe headache hours/days/week it becomes less and less likely that medications will work well. Plus you can give nerve blocks faster than you can start an IV.

The effort of to educate about differences between migraine and COVID-19 is commendable. But the use of "migraine sufferer" or "migrainers" in the article is a problem. Why not just "migraine patients" or "persons with migraine?"
