Migrainelike Headache and Cocaine Use

JAMA. 1989;261(20):2995-2996. doi:10.1001/jama.1989.03420200085043

Migrainelike headache is a sequela of cocaine use. This finding expands the range of neurological complications of cocaine use and is consistent with the potential role of serotonin in the development of migraine. In these subjects, the desire to avoid the cocaine-induced headache eventually became part of the resolve to quit use.
