CONy 2024 | Challenging cases in medication overuse headache

Morris Levin, MD, University of California San Francisco, San Francisco, CA, explains scenarios that can complicate the management of medication-overuse headache (MOH). Concurrent use of several acute medications, as well as ongoing treatment for comorbid medical conditions such as cardiovascular disease or diabetes can make MOH treatment more difficult. Dr Levin emphasizes that when treatment options become limited, it becomes more challenging for healthcare providers to adjust medications and other therapies for these patients. In such cases, he suggests that patients are referred to specialists who have extensive experience in managing MOH and similar conditions. This interview took place at the 18th Annual Congress on Controversies in Neurology (CONy 2024) in London, UK.
