High Dose Riboflavin.
Clinical Study Title:
Effectiveness of high-dose riboflavin in migraine prophylaxis. A randomized controlled trial.
|Plain English Summary:|
|This study looked at the use of a vitamin B2 supplement versus a placebo on the incidence of migraines. Participants were given either a placebo or a vitamin B2 supplement over the course of 3 months. The participants who were taking the supplements reported fewer migraines during the study. Participants also reported high tolerance for the drugs, meaning there were few side effects. Vitamin B2 supplements may help to reduce the number of migraines and be safer and less expensive than most medicines used to treat this disorder.|
