Migraine Symptoms and Treatment Options

OK Compounding is a specialty pharmacy led by Christopher Parks and Dr. Gary Lee. Registered with the International Academy of Compounding Pharmacists, OK Compounding provides patients with a variety of pain management solutions and migraine treatment options.

More than 10 percent of the global population suffers from migraines at some point, with many individuals enduring reoccurring migraine attacks, a condition that ranks among the most disabling medical illnesses. Migraines are chiefly characterized by intense pain on either side of the head, though the migraine can favor one side or the other in some individuals. The excessive pain associated with migraines can lead to further symptoms including dizziness, nausea, vomiting, and even sensory issues such as sensitivity to light and sound.

Many migraine treatments are administered orally, though such treatments can result in unwanted side effects, particularly in patients with sensitive gastrointestinal tracts. Alternative methods of treatment can come in the form of a transdermal delivery. A sufficiently penetrating Pluronic Lecithin Organogel is the most common transdermal treatment for migraines.
