I’ve never done any work with clinical trials, but Dr. Todd Schwedt and Dr. David Dodick asked me to be their co-investigator on the five-year Medication Overuse Treatment Strategy Trial (MOTS) for which they’re the primary investigators. The goal of the study is to determine the best strategy for treating patients who have both chronic Migraine and medication overuse headache. This is a huge problem for patients, and years of experience with the situation haven’t revealed a “best” strategy. Thanks to funding from the Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI), we can now address this question and the horrible situation in which it places patients.
My primary “job” is writing educational content about Migraine for Remedy Health Media’s HealthCentral Network Migraine site. I’ve been working with the fabulous team there for over 10 years now, and am thrilled to be able to get supportive, educational content out to people who need it.
If you’re tired of Migraine running your life and ready to take back control of your life, check out the Migraine.Ninja web site. It’s new, so watch for new content and activities!
