The art of treating headache patients is a complex one, and there are a myriad of medication possibilities. Dr. Robbins has managed to present a clear and practical approach to headache medicines. He brings us through standard first line therapies into more complex "end of the line" medication treatments. This book presents a cohesive, single-authored approach that is unique. Illustrative case histories and "Quick Reference Guides" are extremely useful, and Dr. Robbins has inserted thousands of practical tips on headache management, advice that is impossible to find in other sources. Preventive and abortive medication for migraine, tension, and cluster headache are completely discussed. Hormonal aspects, such as treatment of menstrual and menopausal headache, are presented at length. There is an extensive section on children's headaches, and aseparate discussion on headache in adolescents. These sections present a very clear and effecยญ tive approach to headache management in children and adolescents. Dr. Robbins effectively tackles such important subjects as post-traumatic headache, lumbar puncture headache, indomethacin responsive synยญ dromes, and occipital neuralgia. Dr. Lawrence Robbins is one of our top authorities on the manageยญ ment of headache medications. He has contributed greatly through his research and writing on various headache topics. This book will be invaluยญ able for those involved in the treatment of patients with headache.
