Patient case activity: Migraine comorbidities
Mario Peres presents a patient with migraine and comorbidities and advises how to adapt their treatment plan accordingly, addressing the complication of medication overuse.
In support of improving patient care, this activity has been planned and implemented by North American Center for Continuing Medical Education (NACCME) and Springer Healthcare IME. NACCME is jointly accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), to provide continuing education for the healthcare team. NACCME designates this enduring activity for a maximum of 0.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
This activity was launched on May 12, 2021. The data were correct at time of publication and no further updates have been made to the content

- Identify potential contraindications that should be investigated, and influence choice of acute treatment of migraine, particular focusing on underlying cardiovascular issues and medication overuse.
- Explain how best to manage patients with migraine complicated by medication-overuse headache.
