The present registry study investigated effects of the dietary supplement Pycnogenol® on migraine headache attacks and oxidative stress in otherwise healthy subjects with migraine mild-moderate headache (MH) that were considered. To manage MH, these subjects used only a few drugs (anti-emetics, analgesics on demand) and lifestyle changes; only very occasionally they used other, more specific products such as triptans.
