Magnesium Sulfate for Migraine? May be Affected by Shortage.
Posted Jan 17 2012 12:00am
An IV infusion of magnesium sulfate can be one of the most effective treatments when a Migraine has gone on too long.
This simple treatment has fewer potential side effects than many other treatments, and it can actually abort a Migraine rather than just masking the pain and other symptoms for a few hours. Some Migraine and headache clinics are set up to do IV infusion. Some doctors refer patients to the ER or a hospital infusion center for these treatments.
