Abstract

Menstrual migraine is a common neurological condition reported to affect up to 60% of women with migraine. Most women manage migraine adequately with symptomatic treatment alone. However, in women with menstrual migraine, menstrual attacks are recognised to be more severe, last longer, and are less responsive to treatment compared with attacks at other times of the menstrual cycle. In these situations, prophylactic treatment may be necessary. Short-term perimenstrual and continuous prophylactic treatments have shown efficacy in clinical trials but none are licensed for menstrual migraine. This article reviews the evidence for acute and prophylactic drugs in the management of this condition and considers future therapeutic options.
