Epilepsy and cluster headaches
Hi my husband has been getting cluster headaches on and off for a few years now. He also used to get epileptic seizures (grandmal). He also used high doses of tegretol. He has been epileptic free for about 7years and off meds for 6years. After some research I found out for prevention one can use anti-seizure drugs. I would like to know if there is any connection between the two?

Hi there,
Cluster headaches are a common cause of chronic repeated headaches. The treatment includes methods to treat the pain and prevent headaches.Sumatriptan, steroids all have been used by doctors for curing the pain. Avoiding smoking, alcohol and certain foods which trigger cluster headaches may help. Many medications like valproic acid and Topiramate may be used to prevent headaches. These medications should be taken only under a doctor’s prescription and more studies are needed to evaluate how effective these drugs are at preventing cluster headache. Hope it helps.
Best wishes and kind regards!
