In this lecture Professor Zach Murphy will be presenting on migraine medications. This lecture will begin by discussing the pathophysiology of migraine and how migraines are typically triggered. We will then transition into the mechanism of action of migraine medications and look at the cellular level where these drugs exert their effects. We then talk about the most common names of migraine medications and the general classes they fall within. We conclude this lecture with a discussion on adverse drug reactions and contraindications to migraine medications.
