Stratified care as a function of illness severity is more efficacious in reducing pain and disability than stepped (escalating) care either across or within attacks, as stepped care can delay optimal treatment . Patients with mild/infrequent disability are appropriate candidates for nonspecific acute treatment, while migrainespecific agents are indicated for those with moderate or severe disability. Triptans represent the standard of care; there is also strong evidence for DHE as an acute treatment if triptans fail .
Identification of headache triggers is aided by the use of a headache diary, on which the patient can record data on the most common triggers of migraine: high stress, menstruation, missing meals, and insufficient sleep. Many paper and electronic headache diaries query these variables. , those with CM) may be able to identify triggers more quickly. Of interest are those triggers that precede headache within 24 h on 50 % or more of the occasions on which they are encountered. If the potency of a particular trigger is in question, the patient can be instructed in conducting her own “behavioral experiment” in which she deliberately exposes herself to a given trigger on a random day and monitors 40 Chapter 3.
