Migraines are the most common between the ages of 25 and 55.

Migraines tend to run in families. About 90% of migraine sufferers have a family history of migraines


Ketamine as a Treatment for Migraines, Chronic and Cluster Headaches

Ketamine is a NMDA antagonist, which means it blocks pain pathways. Ketamine also appears to reduce the activity of glutamate, which is the main excitatory neurotransmitter in the brain. The research results have shown that ketamine infusions for the treatment of migraines and other types of chronic headaches have been impressive. In one study, over 92% of patients with migraines reported greater than 50% reduction in pain.

Patients with cluster headaches reported complete resolution of their pain. For patients with non-specific headache and facial pain, over 80% reported significant or complete resolution of their pain. Due to study results like these, the use of ketamine infusions has become a promising new tool for the treatment of migraines, and providing migraine relief.

The annual meeting of the American Society of Anesthesiologists, found that about three of four migraine patients reported improvements in their pain intensity at the end of the treatment period.
