Five years ago we reported the case of three patients affected by basilar-type migraine (BM) responsive to lamotrigine. At that time, proven treatment options for BM are rather limited and lamotrigine has been tested in BM patients because it was a widely tested treatment for migraine with aura. That positive 1-year experience leaded us to suggest that lamotrigine could be a preventive therapeutic option for BM patients, with and without menstruation association. We now report the five-year follow-up of the same patients to confirm and underlie the possible role of lamotrigine to induce BM attacks remission.

Abstract

Five years ago we reported the case of three patients affected by basilar-type migraine (BM) responsive to lamotrigine. At that time, proven treatment options for BM are rather limited and lamotrigine has been tested in BM patients because it was a widely tested treatment for migraine with aura. That positive 1-year experience leaded us to suggest that lamotrigine could be a preventive therapeutic option for BM patients, with and without menstruation association. We now report the five-year follow-up of the same patients to confirm and underlie the possible role of lamotrigine to induce BM attacks remission.
