Several medications from different classes are available to treat acute migraine ( Table 3 7 – 13 ) . Because relatively few trials have directly compared the different medication classes available to treat acute migraine, definitive treatment algorithms cannot be developed. More than one-half of persons treat their migraine headaches with nonprescription medications, and patients often present to physicians after unsuccessfully trying multiple nonprescription therapies. 7 The . Headache Consortium guidelines offer a general strategy based on expert consensus. 14 Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) or caffeine-containing combination analgesics may be first-line treatment for mild to moderate migraine, or severe migraine that has previously responded to these agents. Triptans are considered first-line abortive treatment of moderate to severe migraine, or mild attacks that have not responded to nonprescription medicines. Ergotamine-containing compounds may also be reasonable in this situation. 14 Figure 1 provides a suggested algorithm for management of acute migraine headaches. 5 , 6 , 11 , 12 , 14 – 18
