Notes
  • Objective: To estimate the economic burden of migraine in Spain, from the societal perspective. Methods: The Spanish 2001 annual direct (pharmacy, primary care, specialist and emergency room visits) and indirect (missed workdays and reduced work performance) costs were calculated using the prevalence approach.

The sources used were published epidemiological and resource use studies using the International Headache Society diagnostic criteria from official and unofficial databases. Results: The Spanish population with migraine was estimated to be 3 Conclusions: As in many other developed countries, migraine represents a considerable economic burden in Spain, especially in terms of productivity losses. Therefore, activities should be specifically directed at reducing the indirect costs, and effective treatments, which significantly reduce productivity losses, should be publicly promoted.
