Treatment For Pediatric Migraine

Propofol May Be An Effective Treatment For Pediatric Migraine.

Medscape (10/2, Lowry) reports that at the American Academy of Pain Management 24th Annual Clinical Meeting, “researchers report[ed] that subanesthetic doses of propofol provide a safe and effective abortive treatment for pediatric migraine.” Investigators found that, “compared with the children who received standard abortive migraine therapy,” those who received “propofol achieved significantly greater reduction in pain scores as measured on a self-reported visual analogue scale (VAS).”
