Prednisone

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.

Testimonial

Just a note of thanks to the NHF for hosting these helpful online seminars.  The recent "Fibromyalgia and Migraine" was the second Webinar I've attended, and I learned a great deal.

The Webinars are easy to log into, the presentations are professional, and the presenters do not "talk down" to their auditors. The NHF is apparently choosing subject matter experts with care, and the information is up-to-date. 

Again, thank you for the hard work. I look forward to future Webinars.
