Migraine and Epilepsy

Eric H. Kossoff, Frederick Andermann

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


Migraine and epilepsy, more alike than different, are two of the most common conditions faced in pediatric neurology. This review covers the epidemiology of both disorders, similarities and differences which aid in their mutual diagnoses, and predisposing conditions for the combination of both. Treatments for both migraine and epilepsy can be very useful, although rarely completely successful for migraines. Although the abortive agents used are vastly different, the preventative treatments share mostly similarities, and are commonly anticonvulsant drugs.
