The Connection Between Bipolar Disorder & Migraines?

February 12th, 2011

Researchers have found that between 51-82% of Bipolar II patients also suffer from migraines.

Conversely, patients with migraine had a higher frequency of affective disorder (47% versus 22% in patients without migraine) (affective disorders are emotional disorders like depression that occur with no visible abnormality of the brain) and a higher number of anxiety disorders. They were more likely to have panic disorder (51% versus 24%) and agoraphobia (58% versus 27%) than the patients without migraine.

Magnesium has been shown to help calm the mania of some bipolar patients.  Magnesium as it is found in MigreLief, has also been shown to help prevent migraine headaches.

For migraine sufferers who also suffer from bipolar disorders and for bipolar patients who are also experiencing chronic migraines, a safe and effective, magnesium containing, supplement like MigreLief may provide benefits for both conditions.
