    Agree. Considering that migranes can have complex triggering events such as platelet abnormality, oxygen deficit, serotonin and prostaglandin imbalances, disequilibrium in autonomic nervous system function, mitochondrial-energy deficit, genetics, and so on, a broad-based approach is required. So, one may have to consider stacking feverfew extract, butterbur extract, riboflavin (B2, for optimization of mitochondrial energy production), ginger extract (an important inhibitor of such inflammatory pathways as cyclooxygenase (COX) and lipoxygenase (LOX)), and rosmarinic acid extract (powerful antioxidant protector and immune-system booster).

    what would be the proper dosage of each one of these?

    Feverfew extract (standardized for parthenolides) 300mcg
    Butterbur Extract (standardized to 15% petasins) 75mg
    Rosmarinic Acid 50mg
    Ginger Extract (standardized for 5% gingerols) 250mg
    Riboflavin 200mg

    Twice daily.

    One could replace riboflavin with CoQ10 Ubiquinol at 50mg daily.

    Ginger (powder or fresh form)
    Migraine is considered as a neurological disorder with little convincing evidence of the involvement of some vascular phenomenon. Recent understanding of the mechanisms behind migraine pain generation and perception have considerably helped the development of modern migraine drugs. Most migraine drugs in use, i.e., ergotamine and dihydroergotamine, iprazochrome, pizotifen and diazepam; and non-steroidal antiinflammatory drugs (i.e. aspirin, paracetamol, persantin, etc.) have side-effects and are prescribed with caution for a limited duration. Ginger is reported in Ayurvedic and Tibb systems of medicine to be useful in neurological disorders. It is proposed that administration of ginger may exert abortive and prophylactic effects in migraine headache without any side-effects.

    PMID: 2214812 [PubMed - indexed for MEDLINE]
    BACKGROUND: Treatment of migraine headaches is often delayed due to assessing the potential severity of an evolving headache or anticipating unwanted consequences from prescription medication. Studies have demonstrated improved pain-free response when prescription treatments are taken during the mild headache phase of a migraine. This study was designed to evaluate the efficacy of an OTC product, GelStat Migraine, when taken in the early, mild pain phase of migraine. MATERIAL/METHODS: An open-label study enrolling 30 subjects, male and female, with a one-year history of migraine meeting IHS diagnostic criteria with or without aura, 2-8 migraines per month and < or = 15 headache days per month. Inclusion required having migraines that consistently started at mild and worsened to moderate or severe, if untreated, in at least 75% of attacks. Subjects also had to be able to distinguish migraine from non-migraine headaches and reliably identify migraine early in the course of an attack. One headache was treated in the mild pain phase with GelStat Migraine, a combination of feverfew and ginger. RESULTS: 29 evaluable subjects completed the study, all treating at mild pain. Two hours after treatment, 48% were pain-free with 34% reporting a headache of only mild severity. 29% reported a recurrence within 24 hours. Side effects were minimal and not serious. 59% of subjects were satisfied with Gelstat Migraine therapy and 41% preferred GelStat Migraine or felt it was equal to their pre-study medication. CONCLUSIONS: GelStat Migraine is effective as a first line abortive treatment for migraine when initiated early during the mild headache phase.

    I suffer from intense, and sometimes crippiling migraines. If I'm able to eat some fresh Ginger when I feel an onset, the results are very noticable. I now include a daily ginger pill with my breakfast.

    Thanks to Iron Lungz and the OP.

    I'll be adding it to my daily handful of pills. Anything that helps is worth a try in my book.

    If you truly have migraines (many claim this but do not), then go to the doctor. Supplements aren't the best choice for serious medical conditions. I use prescription Relpax as needed. Works if I can catch it early enough.

    I use Sumatriptan or Reglan. The worst ones are Clutch Migraines.
    I've suffered since I was about 11. Tons of tests, but nothing to note. A bullet in the head sometimes feels like the only solution when it hits hard.

    Another good Herb to look at would be Bupleurum. You can take it as a water extract and dose it from 300- 1200 mg twice a day

    I've only heard of it being suggested for people with anxiety and depression.


    Are you a very anxious person? That can cause head aches. Positive thinking also prevents them. Try to avoid becoming frusturated and get enough sleep if at all possible. Make sure you're drinking enough water

    Good info in the thread. I unfortunately suffer from migraines too. I'm an mma fighter now but have always had migraines since I can remember(first around age 5 caused by the taste from strawberry kool-aid combined with whatever other factors, i just know i chunked everywhere). When I get them now, I usually do not feel any better until I throw up. If i get it early, excedrine migraine helps. I've tried a lot of different prescribed medicines that didn't help seemingly at all. So i may experiment with some of the herbs/etc listed in this thread.

    The EX-Migraine does more damage than good. Go to the DR and get a prescription... I see you have tried some - which ones?
