Migraine disease and medication overuse headache can impact a person’s mental health

For World Mental Health Day, October 10th 2022, Gisela Terwindt, Professor of Neurology, Leiden University Medical Centre, Leiden, The Netherlands, discussed how migraine and medication overuse headache can impact a person’s mental health, including experiencing co-morbid depression and anxiety. It’s important, highlighted Professor Terwindt, that patients aren’t blamed, or blame themselves, when it comes to depression and anxiety as there is a genetic predisposition linking these with migraine. Addressing these symptoms is vital, especially in people with chronic migraine. Medication that can prevent migraine can also positively impact depression and anxiety occurrence.
