Physician prescribing habits for opiates and headache therapies have not been previously evaluated in a large, matched cohort study in idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH). Our objective was to evaluate opiate and headache medication prescribing habits in women with IIH compared to matched women with migraine and population controls. We also investigated the occurrence of new onset headache in IIH compared to population controls.
