Hormone Therapy for Migraine Sufferers

Migraines are common among women, but can be challenging to treat in older women. Hormone therapy may benefit migraine sufferers without an increased risk of heart disease, according to a new review of data from 67,903 participants in the Women’s Health Initiative study. Hormone use has been on the decline since the WHI clinical trials were published in 2002, but new data shows that hormone therapy can be recommended for women under age 60 who are within 10 years of menopause. It was discovered that women with migraines tended to drink and exercise less than those without migraines and had higher vitamin D and calcium intake, and they were also more likely to have night sweats and hot flashes. Women today have more options than ever before for treating their menopausal symptoms. Ask our pharmacist for more information.
