Answer

Treatment of chronic daily headache (CDH) may include the following:

  • Combination of therapies used for tension and migraine headache

  • Discontinuance of over-the-counter analgesics and all narcotics

  • Tricyclic antidepressants

  • Psychological, behavioral, and relaxation interventions (sometimes with TCAs)

  • Abortive therapy, if the CDH pattern includes well-defined migraine attacks
