My beastly sizes 16 year old lad started with Migraines at 14.
Seeing a Ped neuro was Marvellous for us!
One of our ER visits, my physician colleague tried 2g of Magnesium IV
after the migraine protocol that we use up here (10mg IV metoclopromide
and 30mg IV ketorolac didn't really work much). And it knocked it down significantly.
Ethan's preventer... is 250mg of magnesium twice a day... and he's down to migraines about every 6-8 weeks now). He uses rescue sumitriptan.
