Many drugs can induce acute headache, including nitroglycerin,
antihypertensive agents (beta blockers, calcium channel blockers,
angiotensin-converting enzyme [ACE] inhibitors, and methyldopa), dipyridamole,
hydralazine, sildenafil, histamine receptor antagonists (e.g., cimetidine and
ranitidine), NSAIDs (especially indomethacin), cyclosporine, and antibiotics
(especially amphotericin, griseofulvin, tetracycline, and sulfonamides).
Drug-induced aseptic meningitis, a rare occurrence, has numerous possible
causes, including NSAIDs, antibiotics (e.g., trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole,
sulfasalazine, cephalosporins, ciprofloxacin, isoniazid, and penicillin),
intrathecal drugs and diagnostics (e.g., antineoplastic agents such as
methotrexate and cytarabine; gentamicin; corticosteroids; spinal anesthesia;
baclofen; repeated iophendylate for myelography; and radiolabeled albumin);
intraventricular chemotherapy; intravenous immunoglobulin; vaccines (polio;
measles, mumps, and rubella; and hepatitis B); and some other drugs, such as
carbamazepine, muromonab-CD3, and ranitidine.43
An abdominal migraine is a variant of migraine headaches. It usually occurs in children who have a family history of migraines. Abdominal migraines are rare in adults, but about 2% of all children may get abdominal migraines. Females are more affected than males.
Children that experience abdominal migraines typically develop migraine headaches when they get older.
Although abdominal migraines are in the migraine family, the pain occurs in the belly. Usually, it's near the navel or midline. Abdominal...
The clinical presentation of drug-induced aseptic meningitis is the same as
that of viral meningitis. Cerebrospinal fluid findings are the same as those in
viral meningitis, except for a neutrophil predominance; however, in cases
induced by intravenous immunoglobulin, eosinophils are present.
