Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Percent Change of Migraine Headache Days Compared to Baseline [ Time Frame: Day 121 (following 30 day Baseline Period and Treatment Period days 91-120. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Comparing the number of migraine headache days during Baseline Period days 1-30 to number of migraine headache days reported in Treatment Period days 91-120 in the Sumatriptan/Naproxen Sodium arm versus (vs.) Naproxen Sodium arm. Percent change=[(total headache days during Treatment Period Month 3(days 91-120)-total headache days during Baseline(days 1-30)/total headache days during Baseline(days 1-30)]*100%)


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Percent Change of Migraine Headache Days in All Treatment Periods Compared to Baseline [ Time Frame: Baseline Period (days 1-30) collected at Day 31, Treatment Period Months 1, 2, and 3 collected at Days 61, 91, and 121, respectively. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    Comparing number of migraine headache days from Baseline to Treatment Period Months 1, 2, and 3 in the Sumatriptan/Naproxen Sodium arm vs. Naproxen Sodium arm.

    Comparing the number of migraine headache days reported from Baseline Period days 1-30 to number of migraine headache days reported in Treatment Period days Months 1(days 31-60), 2(days 61-90),and 3(days 91-120)in the Sumatriptan/Naproxen Sodium arm versus (vs.) Naproxen Sodium arm. Each treatment period month percent change was individually compared to Baseline. The following formula was used for each treatment period calculation.

    e.g. percent change=[(total headache days during Treatment Period Month 3(days 91-120)-total headache days during Baseline(days 1-30)/total headache days during Baseline(days 1-30)]*100%)


  • Migraine Headache Duration From Onset to Pain Free [ Time Frame: Baseline Period collected at Day 31, Treatment Period Months 1, 2, and 3 collected at Days 61, 91, and 121 respectively. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    Comparing mean migraine duration from onset to pain free from Baseline Period (Days 1-30), to each of the Treatment Period Months 1(days 31-60), 2(days 61-90), and 3(days 91-120) in Sumatriptan/Naproxen Sodium arm vs. Naproxen Sodium arm. Percent change was calculated by determining percent change in each subject, from each Treatment Period month compared to Baseline. The following formula was used for each treatment period month calculation.

    e.g. Percent change=[(mean migraine duration from onset to pain free during Treatment Period Month 3(days 91-120)-mean migraine duration from onset to pain free during Baseline(days 1-30)/mean duration from onset to pain free during Baseline(days 1-30)]*100%)


  • Migraine Headache Duration From Time of Treatment to Pain Free [ Time Frame: Baseline Period collected at Day 31, Treatment Period Months 1, 2, and 3 collected at Days 61, 91, and 121 respectively. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    Comparing mean migraine duration from time of treatment to pain free from Baseline Period (Days 1-30), to each of the Treatment Period Months 1(days 31-60), 2(days 61-90), and 3(days 91-120) in Sumatriptan/Naproxen Sodium arm vs. Naproxen Sodium arm. Percent change was calculated by determining percent change in each subject, from each Treatment Period month compared to Baseline. The following formula was used for each treatment period month calculation.

    e.g. Percent change=[(mean migraine duration from time of treatment to pain free during Treatment Period Month 3(days 91-120)-mean migraine duration from time of treatment to pain free during Baseline(days 1-30)/mean duration from time of treatment to pain free during Baseline(days 1-30)]*100%)


  • Migraine Headache Days With Greater Than 50% Reduction [ Time Frame: Baseline Period collected at Day 31, Treatment Period Months 1, 2, and 3 collected at Days 61, 92, and 121 respectively. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Number of subjects with at least 50% reduction in number of migraine headache days reported in Baseline vs. Treatment Period months 1(days 31-60), 2(days 61-90), and 3(days 91-120)in the Sumatriptan/Naproxen Sodium arm vs. Naproxen Sodium arm.

  • Percent Change of Doses of Study Medication [ Time Frame: Baseline Period collected at Day 31, Treatment Period Months 1, 2, and 3 collected at Days 61, 92, and 121 respectively. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    Comparing the number of doses of study medication taken during Baseline Period(days 1-30) of triptans(Group A) and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs(NSAIDS)(Group B)to the number of doses of study medication taken during Treatment Period Months 1(days 31-60), 2(days 61-90), and 3(days 91-120)in the Sumatriptan/Naproxen Sodium arm vs. Naproxen Sodium arm.

    e.g.Percent change=[(number of doses of study medication during Treatment Period Month 3(days 91-120)-number of doses of study medication during Baseline(days 1-30)/number of doses of study medication during Baseline(days 1-30)]*100%).


  • Migraine Disability Assessment(MIDAS)Questionnaire Total Score [ Time Frame: Baseline MIDAS collected at Day 31, Post final dose study at Day 121. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    Change in Migraine Disability Assessment (MIDAS) total score (effect migraine headaches have on subjects daily function) from Baseline (Day 31) to 3 months after Baseline to end of Treatment Period Month 3(Day 121) following final dose of study medication in the Sumatriptan/Naproxen Sodium arm vs. the Naproxen Sodium arm.

    Total score of disability ranges:

    • 0 to 5, MIDAS Grade I, Little or no disability
    • 6 to 10, MIDAS Grade II, Mild disability
    • 11 to 20, MIDAS Grade III, Moderate disability
    • 21+, MIDAS Grade IV, Severe disability Score ranges from 0-450. No subscales are present.

  • Compliance With Lifestyle Changes [ Time Frame: Day 121 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Self-assessed grade of compliance with lifestyle modification changes (where A=1, B=2, C=3, D=4, and F=5) in the Sumatriptan/Naproxen Sodium arm vs. Naproxen Sodium arm. Lower scores indicate a better outcome. Higher scores indicate a worse outcome.

Detailed Description:

One investigative center will enroll 40 subjects in the US.

At Visit 1, following informed consent, a medical, migraine, and medication history will be collected and a physical and neurological exam with vital signs will be performed. A 12-lead ECG will be completed. Eligible subjects will complete a 1-month Baseline Period and treat migraine with their current preferred treatment of choice. Throughout the study, subjects will complete daily Headache Diaries reporting headache severity and associated symptoms with use of study medication in each 30-day period.

At Visit 2, subjects continuing to meet eligibility criteria will be randomized 1:1 to Treximet or naproxen and provided with medication to treat daily for 30 days. At Visits 3 and 4 subjects will be provided with study medication to treat on 14 or fewer days per month. Subjects will be encouraged to treat their migraine attacks within 1 hour of onset of headache pain and while the pain is still mild. Adverse events will be collected beginning from the first dose of study medication. Subjects exit the study at Visit 5 after a 3-month Treatment Period.

The study provides opportunity to evaluate the usefulness of patient education with a 15-minute digital versatile disc (DVD) concerning the processes of headache evolution and lifestyle changes for better headache management. At Visit 2, subjects will view the DVD in-clinic with a copy provided for at-home viewing. Subjects will complete a Lifestyle Choices for Better Migraine Management Questionnaire at each visit and receive 3 copies to be completed weekly and returned at the following visit.

The Migraine Disability Assessment questionnaire (MIDAS) will be completed at Visits 2 and 5 to determine the level of pain and disability caused by headache.
