Method: This cross-sectional descriptive study recruited 200 migraine patients at the outpatient department of Aikchol Hospital, Chonburi, from 26th August to 26th November, 2016.

The data were analyzed using frequency with percentage, and mean with standard deviation. Chi-square test and Spearman’s rank correlation coefficient were used to test associations between categorical and continuous variables, respectively. Results: Most patients had a poor sleep (78.0%) and low level of depression (49.0%). Frequency of migraine attack, duration since migraine diagnosis and pattern of drug prescribing were significantly correlated with sleep quality (P-value < 0.05). Frequency of migraine attack, duration since migraine diagnosis and stimulating factors of headache were significantly correlated with depression (P-value < 0.05). Stress and precipitating factors of sleep disturbance were significantly correlated with sleep quality and depression (P-value < 0.01 and < 0.05, respectively). Comorbidity of migraine, family history of migraine, duration of headache, mean score of pain severity, caffeinated beverage intake, cigarette smoking, and alcoholic beverage consumption were not correlated with sleep quality or depression.
