Open label study of sumatriptan to treat post-traumatic headache. Subjects will use sumatriptan 100 mg at the onset of headache pain and may repeat the dose if not pain-free in 2 hours. Subjects will receive a maximum of 18 pills for use over two months. Subjects will maintain a daily headache diary.
Drug: Sumatriptan 100 mg
This is a single-arm, unblinded study of treatment for post-traumatic headache with the open label medication sumatriptan and is being undertaken to test necessary study instruments and procedures, establish feasibility and determine side effects in a population with complicated mild, moderate and severe TBI.
- Headache relief [ Time Frame: 2 months ]percent of headaches that had complete resolution (pain free at 2 hours) for each person, during the initial (pre-intervention) month when they used their regular treatment and during the two months (intervention) when they treated headaches with sumatriptan and compare them using a paired t-test.
- Adverse events [ Time Frame: 2 months ]The investigators will calculate the percent who stopped taking sumatriptan because of side effects, percent who experienced each adverse event.
- Compliance [ Time Frame: 3 months ]The investigators will calculate the percent of subjects who used the diary successfully and percent who were able to maintain compliance with treatment.
