Migraine sufferers who are looking for fast relief can now rely on an inexpensive, safe source to alleviate their pain.
A new study shows that cheap aspirin is often better than pricey drugs to control migraine and headache pain.
Scientists say this is great news for the one in seven people who suffer from the common condition.
A Cheap Cure
It’s common for migraine sufferers to automatically turn to pricy prescriptions to relieve their symptoms, but researchers say the humble aspirin — which is available over-the-counter for mere dollars — could be just as effective.
Researchers from Florida Atlantic University’s Schmidt College of Medicine reviewed 13 trials of the treatment of migraine and the prevention of recurrent attacks.
Their findings suggest aspirin in high doses from 900mg to 1,300mg, given when symptoms first appear, is an effective and safe treatment for acute migraines. Meanwhile, scientists say, daily aspirin in doses from 81mg to 325mg could ward off future attacks.
When to Seek Professional Treatment
Migraines are more prevalent than diabetes, epilepsy, and asthma combined. They are also associated with an increased risk of stroke.
If you suffer from migraines with increasing frequency it’s important that you seek professional help. As a dentist who specializes in cranio-facial pain, I may be able to help determine the cause of your migraines (example, TMJ or bruxism) and prescribe a course of treatment.
