Aspirin jab could beat your migraine misery

Post by Tee on Fri Apr 29, 2011 6:09 am

A jab made from liquid ­aspirin could be a powerful new treatment for migraine.
The drug is injected straight into the bloodstream rather than ­swallowed.

Each injection contains a high dose of one gramme of aspirin, more than ten times the amount most people would take to soothe a normal headache or joint pain.

New research shows pumping high doses of liquid aspirin into the blood can dampen down pain in patients struck down by migraines that are so severe they end up needing hospital treatment.

I was given IV Aspirin during a severe status migrainosus episode but unfortunately it was of very little benefit for me.
