Best Acute Treatments You May Not Have Tried

Key Questions

  • Why are only 5% of people with chronic migraine getting the right treatment?
  • What other acute therapies do you recommend for people who don’t respond to triptans?
  • For those people who want a non-pharma approach to treating attacks, what do you recommend?

Enjoy a 6-minute preview of this talk below. 


Lawrence Newman MD is past president of the American Headache Society, a Neurology professor at NYU Langone School of Medicine and a migraine warrior himself. He truly understands the desperation we all feel when it seems like we’re out of treatment options. As director of the headache division at NYU Langone, Dr. Newman leads a team of board-certified neurologists and headache specialists to treat people who have migraines, cluster headaches, trigeminal neuralgia, or other headache-related disorders using a variety of approaches – not just the standard therapies. His research has been published in Neurology, Headache, Cephalalgia and other medical journals. He’s an out-of-the-box thinker who approaches every case with tenacity and humanity to find the best acute treatments for each person.
