Purpose of Review This review presents findings from inves- fective for adults are frequently adapted for use in children tigations of migraine in children and adults.

Adaptation of adult pharmacological treatment for use in Recent Findings Significant similarities exist in the presenta- youth may present a particular risk in comparison to benefits tion, disability, and treatments for migraine between children gained. Because of the known efficacy of psychological treat- and adults. Despite such similarities, many adult migraine ments, such as cognitive behavioral therapy, more universal treatments adapted for use in children are not rigorously tested use of these interventions should be considered, either as first- prior to becoming a part of routine care in youth. Existing line treatment or in combination with pill-based therapies. research suggests that not all approaches are equally effective . . . . across age groups.
