This handbook incorporates diagnostic criteria from the most recent edition of the International Classification of Headache Disorders (ICHD-3). The first half of the handbook provides information on assessment of migraine (including headache red flags and indications for neuroimaging), screening for common comorbid conditions, and essential lifestyle recommendations for all migraine patients. The second half covers both acute and preventive headache medications and relevant treatment algorithms and indications, as well as other medical therapies and behavioral interventions for migraine. This clinician's manual is easy to read and includes numerous tables and other content valuable to all providers wanting a go-to resource on clinical management of migraine.
