Mastering Migraine: Examining the Therapeutic Spectrum for Optimal Patient Outcomes

Treatments targeting calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) effectively treat migraine and have changed our approach to the disorder. This course will review how these medications work and provide updates on their safety and effectiveness. We will particularly focus on differences between monoclonal antibodies and small molecule antagonists against CGRP, acute and preventive treatment, and individualizing therapy for each patient.
