I suffer from migraines and was taking Topamax, 100mg am, and 25mg pm. The new neu- rologist suggested 400mg of vitamin B2 daily. My migraines that were totally eliminated for 4 months came back, along with rashes all over my body and sleeplessness.

I have had Epilepsy for 40 years now which also brought on migraine headaches. In the 90's I had to deal with massive pain 24 hours a day, seven days a week. I have been taking B2 for more than 10 years now and will continue until I die. The quality of the product is important also when suffering a migraine. I purchase the B2 at GNC. I take 1-100mg tablet 4 times a day.

After surviving a four day Migraine, I had to find help I could afford. No Doctors. No Prescriptions. WebMD and Mayo Clinic both said B2. Most reviewers here and on Amazon take 400 mg a day. I say start small. I take 200 mg (2 pills) a day on first break with FOOD. Food prevents upset stomach associated with taking vitamins. I also drink it down with Emergen-C. That's all! After a week ... Show Full Comment
