As an advocate of a more multi-dimensional approach to ch treatment I would argue that some of these should be used in concert.

For example, why be solely dependent on triptans, calcium channel blockers and O2 (which have been shown, at varying levels, to be responsible for either side-effects or rebound) alone when complementary lifestyle changes like caffeine and sugar subtraction and exercise and visualization addition have been shown to contribute to a decrease in frequency and/or severity of headaches?

In a war, I choose to have as many weapons as possible. Some are more potent than others, yes, but the addition of the complimentary weapons make me a stronger adversary.
