Two Potential New Migraine Drugs

They're designed to prevent the headaches.

Two new migraine drugs  show some promise. Instead of stopping a headache once it's already started, these drugs may prevent the migraine from occurring.  Scientists say the drugs block a protein  known to trigger migraines.

In a study of about 400 people, patients had four additional migraine-free days a month with one drug and nearly six extra days with the other. However, migraines also declined in  those taking placebo, but not as dramatically.

Researchers say larger studies are needed and use of the drugs is several years away.
