CONy 2024 | Switching acute treatments in medication overuse headache

Alan Rapoport, MD, University of California, Los Angeles, CA, discusses the limitations of switching the overused medication to another type of analgesic in patients with medication overuse headache (MOH). Research suggests that patients may face similar challenges when switching as most acute medications have been associated with medication overuse. In cases where a different medication is highly effective and requires less frequent use, that could be a better solution. Simply switching medications to address medication overuse may provide temporary relief, only for the problem to potentially return. This interview took place at the 18th Annual Congress on Controversies in Neurology (CONy 2024) in London, UK.
