An open-labelled trial investigated the effects of oral CoQ10 supplementation (1 50 mg/day) over 3 months in 32 volunteers with a history of episodic migraine with or without aura. CoQ10 significantly reduced both the frequency of attacks and the number of days with migraine after 3 months' treatment (Rozen et al 2002). In 2005, Sandor et al investigated the effects of CoQ10 (300 mg/day) taken over 3 months in 42 migraine subjects in a double-blind, randomised, placebo controlled study. 47.6% of CoQ10 treated patients responded to treatment compared with 14.4% for placebo, experiencing a (50% or less) reduction in migraine frequency (number Coenzyme Q10 307
needed to treat, 3). Active treatment was superior to placebo for reducing attack
frequency, headache days and days with nausea in the third treatment month and was well tolerated.
