Acad Emerg Med. 2020 Feb; 27(2):148-160.
PMID: 31621134.


Propofol has not been extensively studied as an acute migraine therapy; however, based on the limited evidence from outpatient and inpatient settings, propofol has been proposed as an option for patients who present to the emergency department (ED). The purpose of this review is to evaluate the existing literature regarding the safety and efficacy of propofol for acute migraine treatment in the ED.
