Prioritizing treatment attributes and their impact on selecting an oral triptan: results from the TRIPSTAR Project.

Journal Article (Journal Article;Review)

Seven oral triptans, which differ on a range of attributes important for treatment selection, are now available for treating migraine.

Using a multiattribute decision model, we combined these data on the importance of treatment attributes with information on the relative performance of the oral triptans derived from a recent meta-analysis of controlled clinical trials.
