OBJECTIVE The determination of serum magnesium levels in migraine. METHODS In a case control study performed between January 2007 and December 2007 at Tabriz University of Medical Sciences, Tabriz, Iran, 140 migraine patients were enrolled and their level of serum magnesium was determined and the results were compared with 140 healthy people who did not have any headache, kidney, or gastrointestinal disorders, and no consumption of magnesium complements. RESULTS Migraine patients (22 male…

Relation between Serum Magnesium Level and Severity and Frequency of Migraine Headache Attacks
TLDR
Results showed that administration of magnesium can reduce the number of migraine attacks and can be more effective in preventing of disease.
Elucidation of the levels of vitamin D, calcium, and magnesium in the serum of Egyptian migraine patients: a case-control study
TLDR
Vitamin D and magnesium were significantly deficient in migraine patients and were related to the severity and disability of migraine attacks.
Migraine and Magnesium: Review of Evidences
TLDR
In most clinical trials, magnesium supplementation revealed a reduction in severity, frequency and duration of migraine attacks, and this supplementation decreased needs of medications in migraine patients significantly, however, in a few studies, magnesium intake had side effects such as diarrhea and stomach irritation.
Dietary Intake of Calcium and Magnesium in Relation to Severe Headache or Migraine
TLDR
High dietary intake of calcium and magnesium, independently or in combination, were inversely associated with migraine in women and men, and for men, high dietary calcium was negatively related to migraine, but magnesium was notassociated with migraine.
Magnesium Sulfate and Acute Migraine: A Randomized Clinical Trial
TLDR
The findings of this study showed that the use of magnesium sulfate along with metoclopramide increased the effect of metoclobramide in managing acute migraine, however, the findings could not support the independent effect ofnesium sulfate on the reduction of migraine headaches.
Magnesium as an Important Factor in the Pathogenesis and Treatment of Migraine—From Theory to Practice
TLDR
Hopes are given of finding a trigger for migraine attacks, which may turn out to be easy to diagnose and eliminate with pharmacological and dietary supplementation.
Treatment of Clinical Cases of Migraine
TLDR
The trigeminal ganglia and periaqueductal gray are densely populated with estrogen (alpha and beta) and progesterone (A and B) receptors which regulate primarily the headache signs.
Review on Headache Related to Dietary Supplements
The lifetime prevalence of headaches is 96%. Approximately 11% of the adult population worldwide has a migraine headache. Migraine is a complex disorder that is more than a simple headache. So far,
Magnesium ion serum profile in chronic migraine: comparative study between treated and non-treated patients Perfil sérico do íon magnésio na migrânea crônica: um estudo comparativo entre pacientes tratados e não tratados
TLDR
Patients with chronic migraine are included in this study because studies indicate that magnesium ion plays a role in migraine pathophysiology but, until now, they have never included only patients with chronic migraines as their population.
Serum Vitamin B12 and Methylmalonic Acid Status in Migraineurs: A Case‐Control Study
TLDR
The aim of the current study was to evaluate the serum vitamin B12 and methylmalonic acid (MMA) status in a group of migraine patients compared to healthy controls.

A Study on Relation Between Attacks of Migraine Headache and Serum- Magnesium Level
TLDR
Serum magnesium level decreases during the attacks of migraine headache, so using magnesium containing drugs may be useful in its control, says this cross sectional, analytical study.
The effects of magnesium prophylaxis in migraine without aura.
TLDR
It is thought that magnesium is a beneficial agent in prophylaxis of migraine without aura and might work with both vascular and neurogenic mechanisms.
Intravenous Magnesium Sulphate in the Acute Treatment of Migraine Without Aura and Migraine with Aura. A Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Study
TLDR
The data support the idea that magnesium sulphate can be used for the treatment of all symptoms in migraine with aura, or as an adjuvant therapy for associated symptoms in patients with migraine without aura.
A Randomized Prospective Placebo-Controlled Study of Intravenous Magnesium Sulphate vs. Metoclopramide in the Management of Acute Migraine Attacks in the Emergency Department
TLDR
Although patients receiving placebo required rescue medication more than the others, metoclopramide and magnesium have an analgesic effect similar to placebo in migraine attacks.
Update on menstrual migraine: from clinical aspects to therapeutical strategies
TLDR
Menstrual migraine attacks show severe intensity, long duration (lasting even more than 72 h), marked unresponsiveness to pharmacological treatments, and present higher recurrence rate and work-related disability than non-menstrual attacks.
Magnesium metabolism and its disorders.
TLDR
Chronic low magnesium state has been associated with a number of chronic diseases including diabetes, hypertension, coronary heart disease, and osteoporosis and the use of magnesium as a therapeutic agent in asthma, myocardial infarction, and pre-eclampsia is also discussed.
