Abstract

The prevalence of CDH is greater among a primary care patient population compared to the general community. A substantial proportion of patients with CDH do not bring their headaches to the attention of their health-care providers. In light of the advances in the development of effective medications for migraines and the growing body of evidence implicating medications as a contributing cause of CDH, it may be appropriate to encourage patients to inform their health-care providers about their headaches and to encourage providers to identify patients with frequent headaches.
