Very interesting, but what I find slightly off-putting is that at the bottom it says, “Success of prophylaxis considered to be ↓ in severity or frequency of headache by 50%.”
Maybe it’s the editor in me, but I’ve wondered at least once if “prophylaxis” of migraine is really the best term for MAV’ers. Isn’t a “prophylactic,” by definition, any treatment intended to PREVENT a medical problem/condition, not treat one that’s already ongoing?
It occurs to me that it’d be interesting if there was a study done that reported the efficiency / success rate / whatever of various medicines in the treatment specifically and solely of the vertigo symptom of migraine (i.e., without regard to whether the medicines affected frequency or severity of headaches – especially as not everyone in the study would HAVE headaches!).
