Prednisone

Type: 
Medication

Prednisone is an anti-inflammatory that is sometimes used to shorten a prolonged migraine attack, or to help cluster attacks. Prednisone in itself can cause migraine attacks if excessive amounts have been taken over a long period of time.

Prolonged steroid therapy can produce significant side effects and strict medical supervision is important.
