Read about  promising new and upcoming treatments for migraine.

Medical Marijuana for Migraine?  
and other hot topics in current migraine research...

Yes, we realize it is February 1st and this is the January newsletter...  We were close though! You'll still get another newsletter at the end of February.

The New Year greets us with a number of promising research and treatment options that have been building over the last decade, if not longer. We at AMD believe this is a good time to pause and take stock of the increasing body of research and therapeutic innovations that may affect the entire spectrum of migraine disorders in time. 

Here are some articles to bring you up to date on these advances, and perhaps give you hope that, somewhere in this body of work, the cure to your particular problem is in the process of being resolved. These articles reflect the work of the best and the brightest stars working on this ever-developing topic.

We have jammed quite a bit of material into these 10 carefully chosen articles. However, not since the early 1990s and the advent of triptans, has migraine disorder research grown in such a robust fashion.  As we have said before, you are your own best advocate. To best fulfill that role you need to be well informed.  Some treatment options such as the Cefaly Headband and judicious use of medical marijuana (no endorsement intended) are available now. Some promising research is in Phase 2 and 3 clinical trials. The next few years will be most exciting as a number of treatments leave research and development and are introduced to the pharmaceutical marketplace...and you.

Be informed and ready for these events. A great way to do this is by following the  Association of Migraine Disorders on Twitter and Facebook.  And of course, we wish you a Happy and Healthy New Year!
