A 45-year-old female patient was admitted to a headache clinic because she experienced an increase of frequency in her known migraine without aura attacks. Since puberty, she suffered from menstrual migraine attacks with a duration of 3–4 days. The attacks were accompanied by nausea, photophobia, and phonophobia. In the first years, she took paracetamol or acetylsalicylic acid to treat the attacks which was of limited success; often 5–10 tablets were needed during the headache period. After introduction of the triptans, she switched to sumatriptan 100 mg tablets which gave her relief for a whole day; later she took also zolmitriptan 5 mg. She never was put on a short-term prophylaxis or other prophylactic treatment.
