Acute migraine treatment is complex and often requires careful attention both from the patient and the health-care provider if the patient's migraine is to be managed as successfully as possible. Even with appropriate use of current acute therapies, not all patients can be treated satisfactorily. New research will no doubt add to our understanding of migraine pathophysiology and lead to new therapies. As a result, our patients can expect acute migraine treatment to be more effective in the future than it is today.
