Aspirin reduces migraine pain

14th April 2010

Researchers have said that taking aspirin could help "within two hours" to lessen the pain experienced by half of migraine sufferers.

The study looked at data from 4,222 people and found taking 900-1,000 mg of aspirin "completely relieved" pain in 25% of sufferers. Co-author of the study, Sheena Derry, from the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford, said aspirin would not help all migraine sufferers: "This is largely down to genetic differences. Different people respond to different drugs in different ways, and at different times."
