Placebo as good as most drugs for children's migraines
Reuters    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A drug-free placebo pill prevents migraines in children and teens just as well as most headache medicines, according to a new review of past evidence. Researchers found only two drugs known to help migraine-plagued adults reduced the frequency of children's headaches better than a placebo. And even in those cases, the effect was small — a difference of less than one headache per month compared to the dummy pills. More

For the first time, the American Academy of Pediatrics has issued guidelines for the management of Type 2 diabetes in children and teenagers aged 10 to 18.
