Migraine treatment with….propofol?

The link above shows a summary of a few studies showing some effectiveness for propofol in treatment of migraines..

An interesting idea, with apparently a decent amount of evidence behind it.  I’ve always been curious about trying it with some of our chronic migraine patients, but I have not used it.  Has anyone had any experience with this?

Also, I’m curious whether people have a certain “migraine cocktail” they prefer using.  Please post in the comments section.
