Three or more servings were associated with a higher probability of migraine head pain on the same or following day. In people who consumed rarely caffeine-containing drinks, elevated, but one to two cups of the probability of migraine attacks.

"The role of caffeine is particularly complex, because it can trigger an attack, but also the control of symptoms unterstützt", study author Elizabeth Mostofsky said. "The effect of caffeine depends on both the dose and the frequency. However, since there are only a few prospective studies on the immediate risk of migraine headaches after the intake of caffeine-containing beverages, we have instructions, and diet recommendations for people with migraine." For the study, the researchers carried out on the basis of diaries, in which 98 patients with migraine-listed for six weeks, typical migraine triggers, as well as the Occurrence of headache, comparative analysis.
