Abstract:  Understanding the complexity of migraine is not a simple procedure. Migraine is a neurological disease, like epilepsy; an extremely debilitating collection of neurological symptoms. This article, which is a conclusion of a three-part article, discusses the triggers of and treatment for migraine, to include formulations. Also included in this article are brief introductory comments on the topic of pediatric headache. A more detailed article on pediatric headache/migraine will be published in a future issue of the International Journal of Pharmaceutical Compounding.
