- Brief summaryTraditional efficacy outcome measures in migraine trials are not sensitive enough to detect clinically relevant differences between two active agents. A promising novel method of comparing migraine treatments is a patient preference study, in which the patients are asked to use both treatments and then assign preference to one of the treatments. We would like to test the concept of patient preference as the primary endpoint in a randomised double blind cross-over study, comparing an analgesic with a triptan for the acute treatment of 3 migraine attacks in patients from the general population, who have not used a triptan or ergot before.

to demonstrate patient preference for naratriptan 2.5 mg to paracetamol 1000 mg.

A randomised, double blind, double-dummy, cross-over study. Fourty subjects will be randomised to either naratriptan or paracetamol 1000 mg with a cross-over after 3 attacks. Subjects rate their satisfaction with treatment after each attack. Preference is evaluated after the second treatment period.
