Efficacy of Frova Tablets –

In adults, the effectiveness of Frova tablets for migraine was proven in 5 studies which included large numbers of people. Neither the doctors nor the patients knew whether the patients were taking Frova or a placebo (a sugar pill that contains no medicine). In all 5 trials, the number of patients who got relief for their migraine 2 hours after taking Frova (at all doses) was greater among patients taking Frova tablets compared to those who took a placebo. In fact, the tablets provided relief after 2 hours in 37% to 46% of patients, compared with 21% to 27% of patients who received a placebo.
