Someone said epilepsy & migraine are Connected

Hi,

Someone told me they recently that they believed that migraine was a form of epilepsy. This startled me! I had never heard THAT before. What was this person talking about?

They might be basing this from the fact that one of the families of meds for migraine prevention are also epeliptice seziure preventative. What I am currently taking is part of that family, depakote.

It’s certainly not correct to say that it is a “form of epilepsy”, but they might be related somehow - noone
really knows. Don’t get too concerned by associations like that.
