  • Ritalin (methylphenidate) – See Methylphenidate (eg. Concerta, Metadate, Methylin, Quillivant XR, Ritalin)
  • Jetlag – after consideration and discussion it has been decided not to add Jetlag as a trigger in itself. This is because the triggers identified are designed to be underlying triggers to help you get to the bottom of your migraine condition. Jetlag itself may be a composition of several triggers, including:

  1. Sleep disruption
  2. Weather factors - sudden change in temperature at a new destination/ atmospheric pressure from planes.
  3. Dehydration
  4. Dietary changes – eating on the go exposes you to more potential trigger foods.
  5. Stress  –managing people, time, possessions, delays etc.


  • Driving or riding in a car – for the same reason as above, this is not an underlying trigger. There are many underlying factors which may be occurring whilst driving.
  1. Visual stress from glare, or sunlight flickering through the trees.
  2. Heat from inside the car after sitting in sunlight.
  3. Posture of the neck/back created by the car seat
  4. Dehydration whilst driving for a period of time.
  5. Hunger whilst driving for a period of time.
  6. Stress  caused from running late to an appointment or from traffic, other drivers on the road.


  • Busy day – this is a form of Stress and should be recorded there.
  • Allergies - come under the classification of the trigger “Illness”. Whilst not strictly ill. Allergies can affect your immune system in a similar way.
