  Purpose

This is a Randomized double blind trial with the aim to estimate the effectiveness of 3 therapeutic regimes per os on migraine pain:

  • metoclopramide 0,15 mg/kg + placebo
  • metoclopramide 0,15 mg/Kg + ketoprofen 1 mg/kg
  • ketoprofen 1 mg/Kg + placebo

Intensity of pain will be measured with linear 1-10 scale or analogic McGrath type scale every 20 min.

The main objective is the evaluation of healing times from pain in the 3 groups
