Healthcare utilization in the US: initial findings from the migraine signature study

Takeaway

  • Young, white females are more likely to use the healthcare system for migraine, with both acute and preventive migraine medication commonly prescribed.

Why this matters

    Migraine is a common reason for using US healthcare systems, but information around demographics and patterns of utilization is lacking. These initial reports from the large migraine signature study will help to inform health care systems and ultimately optimize the prevention and management of migraine in clinical practice.
