Use Acute and Preventive Meds to Manage Cluster Headaches
Patients in the emergency department will need your help to manage cluster headaches.
These are sometimes called "suicide headaches"...because of the excruciating one-sided pain, which almost always occurs near the eye.
Attacks come on quickly and usually last 15 minutes to 3 hours. They can also cause nasal symptoms, tearing, and agitation.
