Cutaneous allodynia interferes in the effectiveness of abortive therapy with triptans, reducing their effectiveness in total pain relief and in preventing relapse within 24 hours. In order to be effective, triptans must be administered before the presence of cutaneous allodynia. Therefore, identifying the presence of allodynia and educating patients on the particularities of this symptom are essential for adequate treatment.
