Abstract

EVIDENCE-BASED ANSWER

The answer is unclear. Ginger is perhaps similar to sumatriptan for acute migraine relief (SOR: C, small comparison trial). For mild headache pain, homeopathic ginger/feverfew mixture is perhaps more effective than placebo for reducing migraine headache severity (SOR: C, small industry-funded RCT).
