The goals of the organization are to remind the general medical
community about this ailment; to inform insurance companies about the
medications prescribed; to alert emergency room personnel to a possible
cause of severe head pain; and to foster understanding about the
debilitating nature of this condition among co-workers, family, and friends.

The efficacy of these drugs varies widely among sufferers.
