Cluster Headache Treatments - Transitional


Transitional treatments are short-term preventative treatments that are intended to relieve the pain while waiting for the effects of preventative treatments to become fully active.

Steroids, such as prednisolone and dexamethasone are considered a best transitional therapy, and are typically effective within 24–48 hours. This transitional therapy is generally discontinued after 8–10 days of treatment, as preventative treatments become more effective within the body, and as long-term use can result in very severe side effects. Typical dosages are between 50–80 mg daily and then tapered down over the course of 10–12 days.

Famous quotes containing the word transitional:

    Postmodernism is, almost by definition, a transitional cusp of social, cultural, economic and ideological history when modernism’s high-minded principles and preoccupations have ceased to function, but before they have been replaced with a totally new system of values. It represents a moment of suspension before the batteries are recharged for the new millennium, an acknowledgment that preceding the future is a strange and hybrid interregnum that might be called the last gasp of the past.
    Gilbert Adair, British author, critic. Sunday Times: Books (London, April 21, 1991)
