Migraine Headache: Diagnosis and Current and Emerging Preventive Treatments.
Authors: Lipton RB, Silberstein S Abstract Migraine is associated with considerable pain and disability.

A Man Made Manic: Levodopa-Carbidopa-Induced Mania in Traumatic Brain Injury.
Authors: Sablaban IM, Sivananthan M Abstract Traumatic brain injury (TBI) has had increased notoriety in light of chronic traumatic encephalopathy in professional sports. However, despite the increased rate at which mood disorders affect this population, there remains little information on management of these disorders. TBI has also been implicated in the development of Parkinson disease, increasing the likelihood that patients may be treated with dopaminergic agents. Management of coexisting pathologies can become challenging, especially when confounded by medication side effects. A case is presented of a 58-year-...

Therapeutic Aspects of Trichotillomania: A Review of Current Treatment Options.
Authors: Jafferany M, Patel A Abstract Trichotillomania (TTM) is a disorder characterized by recurrent episodes of hair pulling that affects a growing and diverse patient population. The behavior is a result of conscious or unconscious stimuli aimed at alleviating stress. TTM can be diagnosed, typically by a psychiatrist or dermatologist, with various assessment tools and scales.

Treatment of TTM with the least occ...

Development and Theoretical Approach to an Adaptive Text Message Program to Promote Well-Being and Health Behaviors in Primary Care Patients.
This report describes the theory, programming, development, and implementation process for a machine learning-based, adaptive, once-daily text message intervention to address this public health problem. The intervention aims to promote psychological well-being and provide education and support around health behaviors. The platform allows patients to provide real-time feedback about each message, and the machine learning algorithm then delivers subsequent messages that are increasingly tailored to individuals' preferred message content.
