Medications to treat headaches fall in 2 categories - Acute and Preventive.

Medication that is taken only when you have an attack is referred to as acute, abortive, symptomatic or rescue medication. Patients with frequent migraine or cluster headache attacks or attacks that are long or severe may be candidates for preventive medications, also called prophylactic medications. Preventive medications are taken on a regular daily schedule in order to reduce the frequency and severity of headache attacks. 

It is important for patients to follow the instructions of the specialist carefully in order to receive full benefit from these medications.
