I just wanted to post that I had been having up to 8 migraines a month, 3 of which were hormone related.  I started taking 120 mg.+ of Co Q10, and 300 mg(I think) of Vitamin B-2, and making sure I had enough Magnesium from my Calcium supplement.
 
It took about 3 months, but my migraines were down to 3 per month, and even those were less severe.  I only have to use abortive meds maybe once or twice a month now. 
 
I'm sure it won't work for everyone, but it might be worth a try!

Amen. I'm going to the store within the next few days to get more B2. I want to bump it up. I was taking 200 mgs. of coq10 and the doc said to up it to 300 daily. I'm sure the 200 was helpful. IMHO, everyone should at least take some. Please...everyone take some coq10, B2 and a calcium/mag supplement. Hang in there!

Hey, I'm going to try some coq10 too, thanks for the advice.
 
I already use magnesium and a B-complex supplement. I've been doing this for a few weeks now, and I do think the frequency of my migraines is reducing.
 
I also read that Fish oils and Vitamins C and E can be helpful.
 
Also, drinking Bayberry Tea - but I've yet to find any! If anyone knows where I can get some can they let me know? (I'm in the UK). :-)

Wow, I got some coq10, and have been using them for about a month now, and I have had far less migraines than usual!!! It's fantastic yeah
 
I've had a couple of headaches, but they didn't turn into migraines like they usually do.
 
I'm so glad I saw your post, as it prompted me to get some - they're great! tongue

Hi Trickey280
 
Do you take the feverfew once you have the migraine, or to prevent it? :-)

Hi.  I have had migraine headaches for several years now.  I have tried many medications and either they didn't work, or I couldn't handle the side effects.  I am thinking about trying some supplements.  I am very interested in the C0q10, but I am not sure which brand to use.  I know they all vary, and I am wondering which brands some of you are using.  If you could let me know which brand,or where to order it from, I would appreciate it.  It seems that many of you are having success with this and I would like to try it out.  Thanks!!

Hey all!

I am taking MigraHealth which is a combo of magnesium, feverfew and B2....it is much easier than taking all separate! Just thought I would throw in my 2 cents.

Take care and feel better

There's a lot to be said for these co-q 10 tabs. I've been taking them since I read your post, and  everything was going great, I didn't have a migraine for ages. Then, I missed taking them for about a week, and the migraines came flooding back within a few days. devil
 
I've gone back on them and I'm ok again now. :-)

That's a great story!!! I might have to invest in CoQ10. To be honest, I am at a stage where I am tired of shoving pills down my throat, but hey...if It works!!!

I call migraines "life-stealers" as they steal precious days away from you. I hate them.

I have been on Paxil for 2 years and it has really helped reduce the number of headaches and the severity of them BUT it has the side effect of weight gain and i have gained 44 lbs and was never heavy before. i work out 60 to 90 minutes 6 days a week faithfully and i keep getting bigger so i tried to get off of it about 6 mos ago and it was a nightmare. headaches came back, i got very very depressed. so i went back up to full dose and i am not doing as well as i was before i tried to wean off. dont know what to do now. i am tired of throwing out clothes and buying bigger sizes.

Any suggestions? I plan to try the supplements.

I hear that too much B vitamins can be harmful. Is this true, or is it just a certin type of B vitamin? Also, I've been taking petadolex for about a month now. Sadly, I have not seen the benifits yet, They say it can take up to 3 months.

Hi - new on site from UK.
 
Migraines from age 14
Age now 38 and still having at least monthly migraine.
 
I also started taking Co Enz Q10 from December - only about 60mg/l day at present. It has reduced the frequency of migraines to one a month. In the first two months I went migraine free which felt like a miracle then they came back again at the time around my period.
 
I still get headachey days mid month.
 
Definately worth a shot - have been taking it for 6 months now.It's also supposed to be a good antioxidant so could be doing other good stuff too.
