Abstract

A prospective double-blind trial of aspirin prophylaxis demonstrated a reduction of more than 50% in headache frequency in 9 of 12 migraine patients. Response to aspirin did not correlate with age, duration of headache history, family history, or platelet ultrastructure. There is some evidence that response to aspirin is associated with raised platelet aggregation. This pilot study indicates that aspirin is effective in migraine prophylaxis.
