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 up ...

I began taking 25 mg per day of vitamin B2 (riboflavin) because of chronic migraines. I chose this dosage because I had seen a study 25 mg of B2 worked as well as higher doses. Unfortunately, after a month, there was no effect on my migraines. I also developed chest pain and heartbeat irregularities, which went gradually went away when I stopped the vitamin B2. I don't blame the brand I used -- th...

Works. I take 50mg WITH my meals - not before or after, to prevent migraines. I balance this with a morning and dinner time multi-vit with B complex. My chemistry is a little more sensitive in the afternoon, so I can feel fatigued dependent upon too many "bad" food ingredients, but not a migraine. My migraines that B2 fixes are food ingredient caused migraines. Many ingredients are industrial processed, used in most foods today and using a migraine prescription med is not safe everyday, and causes rebound migraines. As someone else said, B2 clears quickly, so multiple X per day might be good for others. I learned, for me, it works only when taken with the meal that can have ingredients I don't tolerate. 20 yrs ago I tried this, starting with a 50mg pill in the morning. I thought I would have to go to the emergency room, as it felt like I drank 50 cups of coffee. It cleared before I went, but never tried it again, wondering how others could take 400mg. My chemistry may have changed. I started at tiny bits for weeks, increasing over time. I try not to eat the foods that affect me, but it's almost impossible, so I am happy this now works. I wish I knew the HOW of it, as it seems simple. I believe my chemistry has changed, but foods ingredients have changed a lot over the past 25 years.

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.
