What Is Feverfew Used for Today?
Feverfew is primarily used for the preventionof migraine headaches . For this purpose, it is taken daily. There has been no formal investigation of feverfew as a treatmentfor migraines that have already started, although one double-blind study evaluating feverfew as a preventive agent did find hints of possible symptom-reducing benefits. 1 It is important to remember that serious diseases may occasionally first present themselves as migraine-type headaches. For this reason, proper medical diagnosis is essential if you suddenly start having migraines without a previous history, or if the pattern of your migraines changes significantly.
Feverfew is sometimes recommended for osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis , but there is no evidence at all that it works.
