Understanding migraine and medication overuse headache: How can pharmacists better support patients?

5 October 2023

Migraine is a neurological disorder with intense headaches and various symptoms, which affects the quality of life of millions of people. Medication overuse headache (MOH) is a debilitating condition caused by excessive use of pain relievers, often to manage chronic headaches. Pharmacists play a crucial role in the management of both conditions by advising patients about proper medication usage, suggesting non-pharmacological interventions and lifestyle changes, and collaborating with other healthcare professionals to ensure patients receive appropriate care. This event will explore different options for the management of migraine and MOH and provide guidance on how pharmacists may support patients.
