This article in German language states that for migraine and headaches the first place that patients turn to is mainly the pharmacies where they request over the counter medications (OTC). Therefore the counseling of the pharmacist is essential, the medication needs to be carefully explained by the pharmacist in terms of effect, pharmaceutical formulation (galenic) and dosage options, critical time of intake, interactions, possible drug combination (individuals optimization) in order to improve the patients' understanding and thereafter to ensure a better management of their headaches or migraine.
