I sent a copy of Julia Moravcsik's Medline findings about feverfew to Reader's Digest (who published an article in their Feb 1995 issue advising that feverfew can help prevent migraines.)

I've had a letter back from Elizabeth Craig, a RD researcher. She confirms that none of their sources when they researched the article (late 1994) showed any side-effects from feverfew. She also said that after she got my letter (dated 21 June 95) she contacted a migraine research scientist who is studying the effects of feverfew. The researcher is familiar with Medline and says that "research has shown the dosage taken by migraine sufferers has no side effects at all."

Whew -- that's good. (Or maybe, feverwhew.)
