Clinical Trial 8588

Virginia Beach, Va 23454


Study Summary:

This is a research study to determine the effectiveness of an experimental birth control pill for treating menstrually-related migraine headaches. During this study we will compare the experimental drug to placebo. The study drug being studied contains two different hormones, levonorgestrel and ethinyl estradiol taken as a combination pill for 84 days, followed by 7 days of pills containing just one hormone. These hormones are similar to the two naturally occurring hormones made by the ovaries, estrogen and progestin.Although the experimental drug is a birth control pill, the purpose of this study is not to prevent pregnancy.

Study duration will be approximately 20 weeks.

• Be a female 18-34 years of age
• Be premenopausal, non-pregnant, and nonlactating

• If currently using headache preventive medications, must be on a stable dose for at least 2 months prior to the screening visit with no anticipated changes
