treating migraines in teenagers with triptans
There's growing support for treating migraines in teenagers with triptans...Imitrex, Maxalt, Zomig, etc.
Teens are usually treated with NSAIDs or other analgesics...but these are not always effective. The goal is to find a medicine that stops the migraine within 2 hours.
So far the triptans are approved only for adults...but new studies suggest they're also safe and effective in adolescents.
