MRF-funded study adds knowledge to field of personalized migraine treatment
In their just-completed study, MRF grantees Dr. Yarnitsky, Dr. Granovsky, and Dr. Granot found that a high sensitivity to external stimuli predicts the efficacy of amitriptyline to prevent migraine, especially in people who experience auras.
These findings may point to a possible link between migraine and a condition called sensory modulation disorder, which is easily assessed with a questionnaire.
These results are a step toward a more personalized approach to treating migraine, as we now know how to predict whether at least one drug might help prevent migraine.
