I have being taking it to prevent my migraine headaches for about two months now. It significantly reduced the number and intensity of my headaches. Recently however I started having problems sleeping at night (often wake up during the night) and instead falling asleep during the day.

Appears to be helping decrease the number of headaches I get. One thing I note from the other comments is that I take 200 mg in the morning and 200 mg at night - both with food. I understand B2 clears your body fast so taking the full 400 at once may not be as effective as taking it twice a day.

Started it to help decrease chronic migraines. It took aout 2-3 months to notice a difference, but it is worth it. Cut my frequency of migraines by more than half. I use 400mg every morning.
