Wondering if any of you have tried high dose riboflavin for your migraines?

See this:

There is also a subligual coenzymated B2 that seems to work very well for a fiend of mine.

NO I have not, apparently not to many have.

I have never heard of this med.

Is you doc up on new things or this an older drug.

If you have tried many meds, as the rest of us has, I say go for it. Try everything, to see what work.

Good Luck

I have not tried it. I would do some more research though, as this is just one study. Also, be aware that the B vitamins work together, so a high dose of one can lead to a serious deficiency in the others. And 400mg is a lot - the normal amount for an adult is about 1mg.
There's some good information on possible side effects and interactions here

i had terrible headaches after my hysterectomy 25 years ago. at that time, my neurologist suggested trying riboflavin (vitamin B2). i took 200 mg a day. it was a miracle for me. the frequency and intensity of the headaches lessened dramatically. i took the B2 for a couple of years and then gradually discontinued it.
2 caveats - if you have a sensitive stomach take it with food. and it will turn your urine bright yellow and it stains so be careful.
good luck.
