Question: We recently had a client who reported migraines with aura in the past. They started when she was prescribed an SSRI and stopped as soon as the SSRI was discontinued. Her doctor counselled her that the migraine with aura was due to the SSRI and that she is okay to go on a CHC and she has been on oral CHCs for the past two years with no migraines. I know it’s a contraindication to dispense a CHC to someone with migraine with aura, but, does that mean if a client has EVER had a migraine with aura? Is there any period of “migraine free” that would determine that the client is no longer considered a person with migraine with aura and that we’d be able to dispense a CHC?
