Migraine is a highly prevalent and debilitating condition that causes significant impairment in quality of life. Preventive therapy for migraine is indicated when migraine attacks interfere with quality of life or are frequent and debilitating. The ability to prevent migraine with pharmacologic therapy has long been a goal of both patients and their physicians.
