If you are prone to migraines, feverfew should be taken on a daily basis as a tonic. Some folks can get away with taking it just as an aura appears, previous to migraine onset, or when you feel a headache just coming on.

I have a friend who had a stroke many years ago. She has had chronic migraine ever since, and I mean the kind that require her to to to hospital for an injection of medication. Last summer I had her start taking Feverfew (her neurologist was consulted and did not object, rather he was curious). Over the last 6 months she has had only 3 headaches. This is a marked drop from the almost weekly bouts that she normally had. Her doctor's jaw is still agape. <grin>
Does anyone have any further information regarding long term usage. (note: of the 3 headaches she experienced, two occured within one week of her running out of Feverfew and not replenishing her supply.
