Shoenen, J. et al Neurology 1998; 50: 466-470 reports that riboflavin (400
mg daily) was significantly effective as a migraine prophylaxis.   The
suspected reason was that riboflavin improved mitochondrial energy

Oliver Sacks suggested in his book on Migraines that migraines and epilepsy
were connected.  This raises the question would riboflavin help control

Correlational Opponent Processing model suggest that pain is due to
discrepant information on two or more multiple channels of sensory/motor
information.  This raises the question would riboflavin help improved
learning and memory?
