Fast Relief, Without Unwanted Side Effects.
Almost 1 out of 8 Americans suffer from migraine headaches, often triggered by certain medications, stress, anxiety and factors in the environment such as light, smells and noise. Avoiding known triggers is key to managing migraines, but when they strike, nothing is more important than quick treatment to bring the attack under control.
The treatments most often prescribed when migraines occur are oral medications, which can be toxic to the liver or cause gastrointestinal distress. Transdermal gel delivery systems may be more effective for many patients, especially those who routinely experience gastrointestinal discomforts. Migraine medications applied transdermally have a much lower absorption rate into the blood stream than those taken orally and can prevent negative effects on the gastrointestinal system and other complications.
Thought to be hereditary, migraines have been linked to the dilation and constriction of blood vessels in the head, as well as possible neurological abnormalities in the brain.
