    Migraine is a primary form of headache characterized by throbbing unilateral attacks, increased sensitivity to light and sound, accompanied by nausea and/or vomiting, lasting from 4 hours to 3 days. Developing and implementing new methods of pain relief is an urgent task of modern medicine. One of the safest and most commonly recommended methods is transcranial magnet therapy (TMT). To evaluate the effect of TMT on improving the effectiveness of comprehensive therapy in patients with migraine. A blind, randomized, placebo-controlled clinical trial was conducted, including 50 patients with migraine divided into three groups (the main group received TMT; the comparison group received low-frequency magnet therapy with a magnetic pulse duration of 250 μs; the control group received treatment with placebo device). The objectives were to study the TMT effect on reduction of the frequency and intensity of headache attacks, the severity of associated symptoms, reduction of medications use, including analgesics, in patients with migraine, as well as to evaluate the statistical difference in the effectiveness of magnetic therapy with different magnetic pulse ratio on all of the above parameters in study patients. According to the study data, a positive effect of TMT on the patients' condition was observed. After treatment, 76.9% of the patients in the main group had a reduction of headache intensity compared to the control group (35%) and a 47.8% decrease in analgesics use. In the main group, a reduction of nausea (73.3% of patients), acousticophobia (77.8% of patients), and photophobia (81.8% of patients) was noted. The HADS scale showed a 44.3% reduction in anxiety and depression in the main group. The clinical efficacy of TMT in patients with migraine has been demonstrated. In clinical practice, it is reasonable to use TMT to improve the treatment effectiveness in patients with migraine.
