Cluster Headaches

Treatment Options for Cluster Headaches

There are many different treatment options for cluster headaches, based on the headaches' frequency, severity, and level of disability.
 
In general, your healthcare provider may recommend one or several different treatment options, including:
 
  • Lifestyle changes
  • Medications for an acute attack
  • Preventive medications.
     
In chronic cases, certain facial nerves may be surgically cut or destroyed to provide relief from cluster headaches. However, these procedures have had limited success.
