Migraines are more than just headaches. They are debilitating and painful. In addition to headache, migraine symptoms may include nausea, vomiting and sensitivity to light and sound.
Migraine is a common cause of headaches in adults. Population-based studies indicate that between 12 - 16 % of people suffer from migraine headaches with women being affected three times as often as men. Migraine headaches can be so severe that they can prevent the ability to carry on with usual activities for many hours or days.

The causes of such headaches are not completely understood, but most researchers believe they stem from a combination of genetic, neurochemical and vascular mechanisms. Many people with migraines receive little relief from over-the-counter pain medications. Fortunately, newer agents appear to be making advances in the treatment of migraine.

Some typical features of migraine headache are:
  • A first sign may be a combination of warning signals before the headache appears such as nausea or flashing lights. These “warning signs” may continue through the headache.
  • The headache itself is usually throbbing in character.
  • It may involve only part of the head, such as one side.
  • It may last for hours to days.
  • Light and noise may make it worse.


  • Qualified participants receive all study related care, study drug, and study related office visits at no cost.
  • No insurance is required to participate.
  • Compensation may be available
