About Migraines in Children and Teens

Migraines are a severe, chronic neurological condition characterized by episodic attacks of moderate-to-severe headache and sensory disturbances. Migraines represent a major cause of disability in adults and in children.

Among children, a headache is the most common symptom and the most common source of pain when experiencing a migraine attack.

Other symptoms to look out for include:

  • Irritability or mood changes
  • Sensitivity to sound and light
  • Loss of appetite
  • Nausea and/or vomiting

To diagnose migraines in children, the same criteria is used to diagnose adults, but with differences in duration.

All medications must be tested in clinical research studies before they can be approved by regulatory authorities for doctors to prescribe to patients.
