Old aged aspirin is as effective for acute treatment and prevention of recurrent migraine attacks as more expensive medications.

A review of randomized trials suggests that high-dose aspirin is effective and safe for acute migraine and that low-dose aspirin may help prevent migraine attacks. The study was published online October 12 in the American Journal of Medicine.

Migraine affects an estimated 14% of the general population and is more prevalent in women (18%) than men (9%). About 90% of migraine patients report moderate to severe pain associated with their attacks. More than 50% report severe impairment, which often results in reduced work and school productivity.

The study assessed randomized trials and meta-analyses in which participants received 900 mg to 1200 mg of aspirin for acute migraine or 81 mg to 325 mg daily for prevention of recurrence.

High-dose aspirin was more effective than placebo in multiple trials that examined relief of acute migraine attacks. Efficacy was comparable to other medications, including 400-mg ibuprofen or 50-mg sumatriptan.

However,   100-mg sumatriptan, the researchers note that sumatriptan provides faster relief.


Overall, 81 mg to 325 milligrams aspirin daily "may be an effective and safe treatment option for the prevention of recurrent migraine headaches.

  1. Present day alcohol rehab treatment focuses now start with guiding and an appropriate eating routine bound with the correct blend of proteins and different nutrients that will fulfill the taste buds of the influenced individual and which will at the same time decrease the hankering for alcoholic refreshments. Despite the fact that the outcome isn't probably going to be seen out of nowhere, results can be normal inside a limited capacity to focus time. Next comes legitimate advising. Regularly, the reasons that constrained an individual to take to alcohol might be unique. A prepared clinician will have the option to appropriately dissect it and recommend the best arrangement which will appropriately address the mental pressure related issues.
