There are inconsistent findings about the efficacy of magnesium in the prophylaxis of migraine attacks and there is no study of magnesium prophylaxis focused on migraine subtypes without aura. In this double blind, randomized, placebo controlled study; we tried to evaluate the prophylactic effects of oral magnesium in migraine patients without aura. The prophylactic effects of 600 mg/day oral magnesium citrate supplementation were assessed by means of clinical evaluation, visual evoked… Expand
The efficacy of magnesium oxide and sodium valproate in prevention of migraine headache: a randomized, controlled, double-blind, crossover study
TLDR
500 mg magnesium oxide appears to be effective in migraine prophylaxis similar to valproate sodium without significant adverse effect as shown in a single-center, randomized, controlled, crossover trial. Expand
Effects of Intravenous and Oral Magnesium on Reducing Migraine: A Meta-analysis of Randomized Controlled Trials.
TLDR
Intravenous magnesium reduces acute migraine attacks within 15 - 45 minutes, 120 minutes, and 24 hours after the initial infusion and oral magnesium alleviates the frequency and intensity of migraine. Expand

TLDR
The meta-analyses have failed to demonstrate a beneficial effect of intravenous magnesium in terms of reduction in pain relief in acute migraine in adults, showed no benefit in Terms of the need for rescue medication and in fact have shown that patients treated with magnesium were significantly more likely to report side-effects/adverse events.

THE EFFICACY OF DIFFERENT ORAL MAGNESIUM SUPPLEMENTS FOR MIGRAINE PREVENTION: A LITERATURE REVIEW
TLDR
Magnesium citrate seems to be the preferred oral magnesium supplement for migraine prevention; however, further studies comparing the efficacy of different oral magnesium supplements are needed. Expand
Comparative study of magnesium, sodium valproate, and concurrent magnesium-sodium valproate therapy in the prevention of migraine headaches: a randomized controlled double-blind trial
TLDR
It is revealed that magnesium could enhance the antimigraine properties of sodium valproate in combination therapy and reduce the requiredValproate dose for migraine prophylaxis. Expand
Improvement of migraine symptoms with a proprietary supplement containing riboflavin, magnesium and Q10: a randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind, multicenter trial
TLDR
Treatment with a proprietary nutritional supplement containing magnesium, riboflavin and Q10 had an impact on migraine frequency which showed a trend towards statistical significance and Migraine symptoms and burden of disease were statistically significantly reduced compared to placebo in patients with migraine attacks. Expand
Should magnesium be given to every migraineur? No
TLDR
With a good side effect profile, magnesium is a relatively safe drug with a possible beneficial effect in the prophylaxis of migraine headache, and it may have its niche in the treatment of migraine patients. Expand
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.

An evidence-based review of oral magnesium supplementation in the preventive treatment of migraine

TLDR
The strength of evidence supporting oral magnesium supplementation is limited and a more advantageous alternative to magnesium supplementation, in patients willing to make lifestyle changes, may be to focus on increasing dietary magnesium intake. Expand

Magnesium in the Prophylaxis of Migraine—a Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Study
TLDR
The migraine prophylactic effect of 10 mmol magnesium twice-daily has been evaluated in a multicentre, prospective, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study, with no benefit with magnesium compared to placebo. Expand
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. Expand
Prophylaxis of Migraine with Oral Magnesium: Results From A Prospective, Multi-Center, Placebo-Controlled and Double-Blind Randomized Study
TLDR
High-dose oral magnesium appears to be effective in migraine prophylaxis and duration and intensity of attacks and the drug consumption per attack tended to decrease compared to placebo but failed to be significant. Expand
Central effects of drugs used in migraine prophylaxis evaluated by visual evoked potentials
TLDR
Beta blockers appear to have a significant effect on the increased excitability of the visual system in patients with migraine, although their action is not directly related to their reduction of migraine frequency. Expand
Intravenous Magnesium Sulfate Rapidly Alleviates Headaches of Various Types
TLDR
Intravenous infusion of 1 gram of MgSO4 results in rapid relief of headache pain in patients with low serum IMg2+ levels, which may have a practical application in many types of headache patients. Expand
Cerebral blood flow during migraine attacks without aura and effect of sumatriptan.
TLDR
Migraine attacks without aura and treatment of the attacks with 6 mg of subcutaneous sumatriptan are not associated with detectable focal changes of the rCBF. Expand
Visual Evoked Potentials and Serum Magnesium Levels in Juvenile Migraine Patients
TLDR
Data seem to suggest the hypothesis that higher visual evoked potential amplitude and low brain magnesium level can both be an expression of neuronal hyperexcitability of the visual pathways related to a lowered threshold for migraine attacks. Expand
Serum and Salivary Magnesium Levels in Migraine and Tension-Type Headache. Results in a Group of Adult Patients
TLDR
Serum magnesium levels and to a lesser extent salivary magnesium levels might express indirectly the lowering of brain extracellular magnesium concentration which occurs in migraine patients both in the intererictal periods and ictally. Expand
Red Blood Cell Magnesium Levels in Migraine Patients
TLDR
Red blood cell magnesium levels in adult migraine patients with and without aura interictally and in some of them also ictally are determined to suggest a peripheral expression of the reduced brain magnesium concentration observed in migraine patients. Expand
Visual Evoked Potentials in Migraine
TLDR
The usefulness of visual evoked potential recordings in patients suffering from migraine is debatable with respect to both qualitative and quantitative pathology, and whether it is possible to separate different forms of migraine by means of VEP is investigated. Expand
