Vlachojannis, Julia and Cameron, Melainie ORCID: https://orcid.org/0000-0001-5788-8790 and Chrubasik, Sigrun (2011) Letter to the Editor: Herbal Medicinal Treatment Options for Headache and Migraine. Headache, 51 (8). pp. 1350-1351. ISSN 0017-8748


Abstract

The 'Herbal Preparation' section of a recent review of Alternative Headache Treatments by Sun-Edelstein and Mauskop1 identified a proprietary CO2 extract from butterbur root (PetadolexR, Weber & Weber GmbH, Inning am Ammersee, Germany) and a heterogenous group of feverfew preparations of which the recent introduced CO2 extract MIG-992,3 was the most promising feverfew extract for the prophylaxis of migraine. We caution against this recommendation; a reproductive screening test of fever few has indicated that a comprehensive reproductive study is urgently warranted prior to widespread use.
