The Infusion Center at Atlanta Headache Specialists is designed for the management of acute migraine headaches with the use of intravenous (IV) medication and fluids in the office.
Migraines are a common reason for visits to the emergency room (ER). Patients that visit the ER, experience migraines that are often more severe, unresponsive to home rescue medications, and are lasting for a longer period of time. All of these features make these migraine attacks more challenging to treat.
Atlanta Headache Specialists offers IV medications in the office setting to provide management of acute migraines in a controlled setting, without incurring the expense and time related to ER visits. Drug classes and agents used include nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, corticosteroids, anitemetics, and at times, Magnesium or sodium valproate. In addition, IV Fluids are given for hydration
