Magnesium Chloride

Magnesium (non-prescription) has been utilized in the treatment of vascular headache. It is most commonly recommended as a supplement in the preventative treatment of migraine and sometimes used for cluster headache. Few credible studies are available, but some patients and physicians attest to its helpfulness. It is thought to effect cerebral vascular changes. The average recommended dose is 200-500 mg/day. In high or excessive doses, magnesium can cause significant and sometimes serious toxic reactions. Some clinicians have utilized magnesium in the abortive treatment of acute migraine, particulary with pregnancy when options are limited.

Testimonial

Just a note of thanks to the NHF for hosting these helpful online seminars.  The recent "Fibromyalgia and Migraine" was the second Webinar I've attended, and I learned a great deal.

The Webinars are easy to log into, the presentations are professional, and the presenters do not "talk down" to their auditors. The NHF is apparently choosing subject matter experts with care, and the information is up-to-date. 

Again, thank you for the hard work. I look forward to future Webinars.
