Two double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomised, multicenter, multinational, parallel-group studies were carried out to identify the optimum dose of intranasal sumatriptan for the acute treatment of migraine. Study medication was taken as a single dose through one nostril in the first study, and as a divided dose through two nostrils in the second study.(More)
The effects of beta-adrenoceptor antagonists on salivary secretion have been extensively studied in animals but not in man. The aim here was to compare salivary flow rate and composition in man during 1 week of treatment with a non-selective (propranolol 80 mg b.i.d.) and a beta 1-selective (atenolol 50 mg o.d.) antagonist with that of placebo. The(More)
BACKGROUND Episodic tension-type headache is a common problem affecting approximately 2 of 3 of the population. The origin of tension-type headache is multifactorial, but the pathogenesis is still unclear. In some individuals episodic tension-type headache transforms into chronic tension-type headache (CTTH). Subjective symptoms related to the central(More)
This article reviews the pathophysiology and pharmacology of emesis in relation to migraine pathogenesis. Also, the place of antiemetic and gastrointestinal prokinetic agents in current and future acute migraine treatment strategies is reviewed. The mechanisms of action of current and novel acute migraine therapies are considered with respect to the(More)
The aim of this work was to develop and initiate the documentation of an instrument for the assessment of subjective CNS-related symptoms occurring during cardiovascular pharmacotherapy. The selfapplied questionnaire developed for minor symptom evaluation (MSE profile) includes 24 items and uses a visual analogue scale to record symptoms. Three different(More)
Felodipine, a dihydropyridine calcium antagonist, was given double-blind in a crossover design comparing once-daily doses of 20 mg felodipine extended-release (ER) tablets with placebo in 12 hypertensive patients. A 2-h intravenous infusion was given after a placebo washout. After oral felodipine, blood pressure (BP) was significantly lower than after(More)
The aim of the study was to evaluate the prevalence of subjective perception of dry mouth in an adult population and to determine the prevalence of pharmacotherapy in this population. An additional aim was to assess a possible co-morbidity between symptoms of dry mouth and continuing pharmacotherapy. Four-thousand-two-hundred persons were selected at random(More)
The aim of the present study was to compare the general well-being of migraine patients between attacks with that of an age- and sex-matched control group. One hundred and forty-five consecutive and eligible patients at the Gothenburg Migraine Clinic were asked about their well-being and their complaints. Using three self-administered standardized(More)
Atenolol and metoprolol are the two most widely used beta 1-adrenoceptor antagonists in the treatment of essential hypertension. Differences in their physico-chemical properties have been the basis of a number of clinical studies whose primary or secondary objective has been to compare subjective well-being during treatment with these beta-selective(More)
