Menstrual migraine is a common neurological condition reported to affect up to 60% of women with migraine. Most women manage migraine adequately with symptomatic treatment alone. However, in women with menstrual migraine, menstrual attacks are recognised to be more severe, last longer, and are less responsive to treatment compared with attacks at other times of the menstrual cycle. In these situations, prophylactic treatment may be necessary. Short-term perimenstrual and continuous prophylactic treatments have shown efficacy in clinical trials but none are licensed for menstrual migraine. This article reviews the evidence for acute and prophylactic drugs in the management of this condition and considers future therapeutic options.

Working with the editorial staff and reviewers for Clinical Medicine Insights: Therapeutics was a positive experience. The online submission/revision process was easy and staff were readily available to answer any questions. Reviewers were knowledgeable, lending expert comments that allowed for improvement in content information. I highly recommend others practitioners and researchers to consider Libertas Academica journals for their next publication.
All authors are surveyed after their articles are published. Authors are asked to rate their experience in a variety of areas, and their responses help us to monitor our performance. Presented here are their responses in some key areas. No 'poor' or 'very poor' responses were received; these are represented in the 'other' category.See Our Results
