CONy 2024 | Navigating complex cases of medication overuse headache

Alan Rapoport, MD, University of California, Los Angeles, CA talks about complex cases of medication overuse headache (MOH). MOH is a chronic headache disorder secondary to a pre-existing headache syndrome and is frequently accompanied by other conditions such as depression, anxiety, and various comorbidities. As a result, these patients struggle with sleep disturbances, anxiety about when the next headache will strike, and doubts about their recovery. Biobehavioral treatments can be particularly beneficial. Teaching patients to maintain regular eating habits and ensuring they get sufficient sleep are crucial steps. Addressing the needs of these complex patients often requires a multifaceted approach, sometimes utilizing three or four different treatment modalities to achieve improvement. This interview took place at the 18th Annual Congress on Controversies in Neurology (CONy 2024) in London, UK.
