Headache in the Emergency Department (ED) - A Multi-Center Research Network to Optimize the ED Treatment of Migraines
Montefiore Medical Center
Migraines are a specific type of headache that frequently recur and are very painful.
Although there are many medications that are effective against migraines, none of these
medications cure 100% of migraines. Another problem with migraines is that although many
times they get better after intravenous (IV) treatment in the emergency room (ER), about 1/3
of the time migraines recur the next day. The purpose of this research project is to see if
adding a medication called dexamethasone to standard ER therapy will help patients get
better quicker and stay pain-free more often than if they receive placebo.
