II ruolo del valproato di sodio nella profilassi dell'emicrania

Translated title of the contribution: The role of valproic acid in migraine prophylaxis

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Finding the best treatment for a migraine patient is often a problem in clinical practice since the condition is very common and disabling. The drugs most commonly used for migraine prophylaxis are beta-blockers, calcium antagonist and serotonin modulators. Recently, several double-blind trials have affirmed the efficacy of valproic acid in migraine prophylaxis: the valproic acid is especially useful when migraine occurs in patients with epilepsy, anxiety disorders, or bipolar disorder.
