- Timolol Eye Drops in the Treatment of Acute Migraine Headache [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
Subjects will maintain a headache diary that records time of headache onset or recurrence. Each headache occurrence will be given a headache intensity rating based on a four point scale recommended by the International Headache Society (0=no headache, 1=mild headache, 2=moderate headache, 3=severe headache).
Also recorded for each headache will be the extent of functional impairment on a four point scale (0=function and work normally, 1=mild impairment, 2=severe impairment, 3=requiring bed rest).
Any associated symptoms (eg, nausea, vomiting, photophobia, phonophobia), headache recurrences, uses of rescue medications, and adverse events will be recorded in the headache diary.
At followup visits (1 month, 3 month, 6 month and 1 year), subjects will rate the overall effectiveness of the medication on a four point scale (0=poor, 1=fair, 2=good, 3=execellent).
