: I have suffered with vascular migraine headaches for about 17 years. I am a 36 yr. old female and have been on many different medications over these years. I have been seeing a neurolgists that specialists in headaches but we are not having much success. Although the headaches are somewhat less intense then in previous years, I am still having them about twice a week. Along with my daily medicine I am treating the headaches with the Imitrex injections. I am limited me to two shots a week and they only take the edge off of the headache not make it go away. Is this the most up-to-date treatment for the onset of a migraine? My main question is: Is it possible to obtain a list of Doctors that treat migraine headaches at the Cleveland Clinic? I am desperate to find someone that can help me. I would also like to know if the headache clinic would be an option?
Thank you for your time and information.
New medications are always being approved for the treatment of migraine. Currently
at the Cleveland Clinic we have two headache specialists through our headache clinic (Drs Gretter and Kunkel, and
a third should be joining soon. You could call the appointment secretary
