Adolescents who suffer from migraine may find relief with a combination of sumatriptan and naproxen sodium (suma/nap), according to a study published online last month in Pediatrics
Researchers studied 600 teens, ages 12 to 17, who experienced two to eight migraine attacks per month for at least six months. The first migraine during the study period was treated with a placebo. If the pain persisted two hours later, the teens were assigned to a placebo group or to a group receiving different doses of suma/nap: 10/60 mg, 30/180 mg or 85/500 mg. Researchers then evaluated who was pain-free two hours later.
