This is what 1 customer told us about his use with Vitamin B2 for Migraines: As a migraine sufferer he was living on neurofen and other pain killers. His specialist suggested trying 400mg of Vitamin B2 a day. Within 1 month he was completely free of headaches - after having them nearly every day of the week previously. He was then advised to reduce to 200mg a day, as a maintenance. He remains migraine free at this dosage. Another product we have which contains Vitamin B2, as well as magnesium aspartate is the Migradol from Clinicians. This product is specifically for migraines and also advises 400mg of B2 a day.
