Lisinopril In Migraine
There is light at the end of the tunnel for people suffering from migraine according to a study carried out by the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Trondheim, Sweden. Lisinopril is presently used for the treatment of high blood pressure. It was tried on 60 patients suffering from migraine and ranging between the ages of 19-59 years. The treatment extended over a period of two weeks starting with one 10mg Lisinopril tablet once daily for one week followed by two 10mg tablets once daily for 11 weeks.
The study concluded that Lisinopril provides better and safer prevention of migraine as compared to several other anti-hypertensive and anti-epileptic drugs that are currently used for the same purpose.
