    I have had migraines for 40 years, riboflavin is amazing, 200mgs daily maintainence dose 400mgs daily if breakthrough migraines occur. This has been a really effective preventative for me and definitely worth a try.

    I have been on almost every drug, including giving myself injection. Side effects are almost worse than the migraine. 2 years ago my Dr. put me on 400mg of B2 daily. It has been wonderful and doesn't have a book for warnings and side effects. I still get break through migraine, but they aren't as bad. I use vomit, couldn't stand, noise and lights were unbearable. My Dr. is keeping me o ... Show Full Comment

    While Riboflavin does work for migraines, so do B12, B3, B5, and B6. I would urge anyone who takes large amounts of one particular B vitamin to also take a good B-complex, as all B-vitamins need to work together. High levels of just Riboflavin used for a prolonged period of time can lead to cataracts. Butterbur works well, as does Feverfew. My research and personal experience shows that some peopl ...

    Having been suffering from cluster headaches as of lately, I had become frustrated with the traditional treatments. Getting blocks in the scalp and using injectables appeared to be a short-term solution. My doctor recommended a number of alternative options for treatment, one being B2. I am currently taking 400mg in the AM and have definitely noticed an improvement in the frequency of the heada ... Show Full Comment

    I had migraines for 14 years. Doctors put me on 125 mg of Divalproex which was expensive. I still suffered with 'breakthrough' migraines. Recently my doctors changed my meds to 400 mg vitamin B-2 daily. I have the same results with the B-2 that I had with the Divalproex, but now I am taking a vitamin. I am very pleased with this change. A change from a prescription to a vitamin is a big ... Show Full Comment
