The treatment from chronic headaches can involve non-pharmacologic measures such as
- stress reduction and relaxation
- discontinuation of medications that may contribute to chronic headaches such as daily use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatories or narcotics
- physical therapy if there is an indication that neck strain could be contributing to headaches
There are many medications that are used on a daily basis to decrease the frequency of chronic headaches which comes from anti-epileptic, anti-arrhythmic and anti-depressant classes of medications.
Botox injections can sometimes be considered for chronic daily headaches as well.
