      Fourteen children with abdominal migraine were treated with pizotifen and placebo in a double blind crossover trial. The results showed pizotifen to be clearly superior to placebo in the prophylaxis of abdominal migraine. The importance of clearly distinguishing abdominal migraine from other forms of recurrent abdominal pain is emphasised.
