Clinical Study Title:
High-dose riboflavin as a prophylactic treatment of migraine: results of an open pilot study.
|Plain English Summary:|
|This study looked at the use of a vitamin B2 supplement to help to reduce the number of migraines that a person who is prone to them may get. A total of 49 persons who suffer from migraines were enrolled in this study. All participants were given a daily supplement of vitamin B2, while 23 of the participants were also given aspirin in addition to the vitamin B2. Only one person in the study reported side effects of the treatment. The addition of the aspirin did not enhance the effects of the treatment. Most participants reported a decrease in the number of migraines during the study. Vitamin B2 supplementation could then be considered a safe and inexpensive treatment for migraines.|
