Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Participants Who Were Pain Free at 2 Hours Post-dose [ Time Frame: 2 hours after single dose of double-blind treatment (Randomization through Week 13) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Participants were evaluated (self-assessment) for pain intensity by using a 4-point rating scale: 0=none, 1=mild, 2=moderate, and 3=severe. Participants with pain-free response were considered as those who had a reduction in migraine headache pain from moderate (score=2) or severe (score=3) at baseline to none (score=0) post-treatment, without the use of rescue medication (additional medication taken by participants for the treatment of migraine pain or associated symptoms) prior to or at 2 hours post-dose.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Participants Sustained Pain-free From 2-24 Hours [ Time Frame: 2 to 24 hours after single dose of double-blind treatment (Randomization through Week 13) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Participants with sustained pain-freedom were defined as those with pain-freedom at 2 hours post-dose that was maintained up to 24 hours post-treatment without the use of rescue medication.

  • Number of Participants Photophobia-free at 2 Hours Post-dose [ Time Frame: 2 hours after single dose of double-blind treatment (Randomization through Week 13) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The number of participants who did not have photophobia (sensitivity to light) at 2 hours post dose was analyzed.

  • Number of Participants Phonophobia-free at 2 Hours Post-dose [ Time Frame: 2 hours after single dose of double-blind treatment (Randomization through Week 13) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The number of participants who did not have phonophobia (sensitivity to sound) at 2 hours post dose was analzyed.

  • Number of Participants Pain-free at 1 Hour Post-dose [ Time Frame: 1 hour after single dose of double-blind treatment (Randomization through Week 13) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Participants with a pain-free response at 1 hour post-dose were considered as those who had a reduction in migraine headache pain from moderate (a score of 2) or severe (a score of 3) at baseline to none (a score of 0) post-treatment, without the use of rescue medication prior to or at 1 hour post dose.

  • Number of Participants Sustained Photophobia-free From 2-24 Hours [ Time Frame: 2 to 24 hours after single dose of double-blind treatment (Randomization through Week 13) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Participants with sustained freedom from photophobia were those with an absence of photophobia (sensitivity to light) from 2 to 24 hours post-dose without the use of rescue medication.

  • Number of Participants Sustained Phonophobia-free From 2-24 Hours [ Time Frame: 2 to 24 hours after single dose of double-blind treatment (Randomization through Week 13) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Participants with sustained freedom from phonophobia were those with an absence of phonophobia (sensitivity to sound) from 2 to 24 hours post-dose without the use of rescue medication.

  • Number of Participants Sustained Nausea-free From 2-24 Hours [ Time Frame: 2 to 24 hours after single dose of double-blind treatment (Randomization through Week 13) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Participants with sustained freedom from nausea were those with an absence of nausea from 2 to 24 hours post-dose without the use of rescue medication.

  • Number of Participants Who Used Rescue Medication From 2 to 24 Hours Post Dose [ Time Frame: 2 to 24 hours after single dose of double-blind treatment (Randomization through Week 13) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Rescue medication was defined as an additional medication taken by participants for the treatment of migraine pain or associated symptoms within 24 hours of dosing with investigational product. Permitted rescue medications included oral naproxen sodium (maximum 15 mg/kg), oral over-the-counter pain reliever, and anti-emetics. This outcome measure included only participants who rescued from 2 to 24 hours post-dose, inclusive.

  • Number of Participants Who Used Their First Dose of Rescue Medication Through the Indicated Time Points [ Time Frame: Dosing to 24 hours after single dose of double-blind treatment (Randomization through Week 13) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Rescue medication was defined as an additional medication taken by participants for the treatment of migraine pain or associated symptoms within 24 hours of dosing with double-blind treatment. In addition to participants who rescued from 2 to 24 hours post-dose, inclusive, this outcome measure also included nine protocol violators who rescued < 2 hours post-treatment.

  • Number of Participants Nausea-free at 2 Hours Post-dose [ Time Frame: 2 hours after single dose of double-blind treatment (Randomization through Week 13) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The number of participants who did not have nausea at 2 hours post dose was analzyed.


Other Outcome Measures:
  • Mean Age of Participants at Baseline Categorized by Age Group [ Time Frame: Baseline ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The mean age of participants at baseline was calculated for all participants in the 12 to 14 year and 15 to 17 year age groups.

  • Number of Participants Randomized to Double-blind Treatment in the Indicated Age Categories at Baseline [ Time Frame: Baseline ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The number of participants receiving double-blind treatment were reported according to age.

  • Number of Female and Male Participants Categorized by Age Group [ Time Frame: Baseline ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The gender of participants at baseline was reported for all participants in the 12 to 14 year and 15 to 17 year age groups.

  • Number of Participants of the Indicated Race Categorized by Age Group [ Time Frame: Baseline ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The race of participants at baseline was reported for all participants in the 12 to 14 year and 15 to 17 year age groups.

  • Mean Weight of Participants at Baseline Categorized by Age Group [ Time Frame: Baseline ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The mean weight of participants at baseline was calculated for all participants in the 12 to 14 year and 15 to 17 year age groups.

  • Mean Body Mass Index of Participants at Baseline Categorized by Age Group [ Time Frame: Baseline ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The mean body mass index of participants at baseline was calculated for all participants in the 12 to 14 year and 15 to 17 year age groups. Body mass index is calculated as: weight (kilograms [kg]) divided by height (meters [m]^2).
