Answer

Patients should be educated regarding the need to avoid known precipitants of CH. In addition, they should be instructed to avoid high altitudes.

For patient education resources, see the Headache Center, as well as Causes and Treatments of Migraine and Related Headaches, Cluster Headache, Alternative and Complementary Approaches to Migraine and Cluster Headaches, Cluster Headache FAQs, and Understanding Migraine and Cluster Headache Medications .
