Migraine attacks can be treated by Aspirin

A new study finds a single dose of aspirin can treat the patients whereas many rely on strong painkillers & special remedies to alleviate migraine headaches.
Migraine attacks can be treated by AspirinAccording to the study carried out by the Cochrane Library, taking a single dose of 900-1000mg aspirin substantially alleviates moderate to severe headache within two hours in more than 50% of migraineurs.

"This is largely down to genetic differences," said lead researcher Andrew Moore, adding that "Different people respond to different drugs in different ways, & at different times."

Taking high doses of aspirin was reported to be effective in reducing nausea, vomiting, & sensitivity to light or sound (photophobia & phonophobia) commonly reported in migraine attacks.

While a combination of aspirin & an anti-emetic showed promising results in reducing migraine-related nausea & vomiting, the combo produced no greater frequency of pain relief. Scientists, however, urged migraineurs to avoid using the pill for long term, stressing that aspirin can cause side effects such as gastrointestinal problems.
