Emphasize Lifestyle Changes to Prevent Migraines in Kids and Teens
You'll see more focus on PREVENTING migraines in kids and teens...especially now that Topamax (topiramate) is approved for ages 12 and up.
About 6% of kids suffer from migraine headaches. They're more common in boys BEFORE puberty...and girls during and AFTER puberty.
Emphasize lifestyle changes...managing stress, adequate sleep, regular meals and exercise, and avoiding caffeine and other triggers.
