The Wide World of Migraine Treatments

Releases Monday, July 3 at 12pm EDT

About the episode:

Migraine diagnosis? Check. Next up? Navigating that “little thing” we call treatment. On this episode, Kat and Skye are joined by neurologist Juliana H. VanderPluym MD FRCPC, who specializes in headache medicine (and also lives with migraine!). Together, the trio travel the educational road of treating migraine by exploring the differences between acute and preventive medications, as well as bridge therapies. They also dig into the social determinants of health, the stickiness of setting treatment goals, tips for seeking emergency care, and Dr. VanderPluym shares a metaphor about the patient-provider relationship that Kat will be thinking about for a very, very long time.
