Preventative medication study

Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospitals are running a research study for people having frequent migraine attacks. They are looking for patients to take part in the study who are above 18 years of age, not pregnant or breast feeding, not on regular warfarin and aspirin and have 4 to 15 migraine days a month. The study will investigate a medication as a prophylactic treatment for migraine (to prevent attacks) and will be conducted from Guy’s Hospital, London.

The time frame for the study is 4 months and will involve: Taking the medication or a matching placebo once a day for 3 months, an initial visit to the migraine clinic and then 4 visits to the study nurse (about half an hour on each occasion), an echocardiogram (an ultrasound scan of the heart) taking one hour, and keeping a headache diary. Help with travel costs is available.

The investigators are Prof Leone Ridsdale, Paul Seed and Prof John Chambers who can be contacted on or 020 7188 1047
