Vitamin Supplements and Migraine
Supplement information related to migraine can be very confusing.
Which vitamin supplements should we take? Why should we take them?
How long before we should expect to feel an effect? It's so easy for us to think - if all these medicines aren't helping why would something I can buy over the counter make a difference? In this week's episode of Heads UP, Dr. Lindsay Weitzel questions Dr. Amelia Barret about supplements and migraine disease.
What to do when people don't understand your disease
Do you have people in your life who simply do not understand your migraine or headache disorder? These people can be family members, friends, work colleagues, or even your boss. Dr. Dawn Buse and Dr. Lindsay Weitzel have a candid discussion about attitudes and strategies we can employ in these situations.
Telemedicine for Migraine and Headache
Have you tried telemedicine for your headache and migraine care? What are the benefits and limitations? How do you know when you actually need to be seen in person? This week on Heads Up Dr. Lindsay Weitzel talks to Dr. Brad Torphy, Medical Director of the Headache Centers of America, about how to get the best out of the telemedicine trend.
Cannabis, Migraine and Rebound Headache
Cannabis is used by many people with migraine and other headache disorders to help control their symptoms. In the last few years, some studies have shown it to be effective for some people. Recent data has emerged showing that it may have a rebound effect in patients with migraine. Dr. Lindsay Weitzel discusses this data with Dr. Tim Smith. How do we know if cannabis or one of our other medications is causing us to have rebound or medication overuse headache?
Psilocybin and Treatment for Migraine
Dr. Tim Smith and Dr. Lindsay Weitzel discuss the most recent research out of Yale on the use of psilocybin for migraine. Survey data and anecdotal reports have previously shown psilocybin to be helpful in cluster headache.
Why might it be helpful in treating migraine disease and cluster headache? What are the scientific, molecular, and legal reasons that it is controversial and difficult to study?
