Does Ginkgo Biloba Make Migraines Worse?

I've been thinking about taking Ginkgo Biloba, but heard a side effect could be migraines. Do any migraine sufferers out there take it, or tried to take it? Did you notice a difference in your migraines (pain level, frequency, etc)?


hi, bde,

I think you'll find that "headaches" are listed as a possible side effect of ginko, not Migraines, and there's a difference. That said, I have known people who said it made their Migraines worse.

I know of no evidence that it helps with Migraines. As with any medication, including supplements, it's best to check with your doctor before trying it.
