ABSTRACT

Background: The right choice of migraine headache medications can be controlled by knowing the knowledge, attitude, and practice among pharmacists because pharmacists interact with plenty of people who have a migraine headache daily. The present study aimed at evaluating the pharmacists’ knowledge, attitude, and practice in migraine management and recognize factors that influence the awareness of migraine management. Methods: A cross-sectional study was carried out in the Al-Madinah Al-Munawarah region, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, from October 2020 to June 2021. The study targeted all pharmacists who work in that region. Data were collected using a web-based valid questionnaire conducted through social media. Results: The study included 303 pharmacists, 56.4% were community pharmacists. Furthermore, 34.3% were pharmacists of the hospitals, and the remainder were from primary healthcare centers. Approximately, half make daily recommendations on between one and five over the counter medications, 26.7% reported giving medications without a prescription, 66% said they are taking a history during their clinical training in their work-life, 49.5% agreed that migraine is a primary brain disease, 84.5% either strongly agreed or agreed that patient sense of healthy- being is an essential consideration in the management of headache. Conclusion: The study showed that pharmacists have good knowledge about migraine and their management. The most frequent potential barriers to counseling the patients were patients’ lack of awareness to be counselled (47.5%), shortage of time (43.2%), and high patient load (39.3%).
