Migraine Prevention Drugs, Topiramate and Amitriptyline Prove No Better than Placebo in Children

November 12th, 2016

Alternative for Children's Migraines

Scientist and patent holder, Curt Hendrix explain the science behind the success of MigreLief migraine formulas.

Last month, Akeso Health Sciences attended annual conferences of the AAP (American Association of Pediatricians) and the CNS (Child Neurology Society) to exhibit its migraine supplements as effective nutritional support for children aged 2+ suffering either chronic or episodic migraine.

It was great to meet face to face with some of the neurologists, headache specialists and other healthcare professionals who have been recommending MigreLief supplements for years.  Both MigreLief formulas, “daily maintenance” and “fast-acting help” were well received.
It was at the recent CNS convention that we were first informed of the study regarding the use of topiramate and amitriptyline for migraine prevention in children.  The study was published simultaneously with its presentation at the annual meeting of the Child Neurology Society in Vancouver.

A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial of 328 children and adolescents aged 8-17 who were diagnosed with migraines (with our without aura) concluded that amitriptyline and topiramate proved no better than placebo at preventing migraine in children and were associated with adverse side-effects.

In the study, the participants recorded the number of headaches they experienced during a 28 day baseline period and then were given either a placebo, topiramate, or amitriptyline during a 24 week trial period.  The drug doses were increased every 2 weeks over an 8 week period with doses modified according to side-effects.  In the end, no differences in effectiveness were seen between the two drug groups and the placebo group, however, the authors observed higher rates of adverse side-effects overall in the active treatment groups than the placebo.

Amitriptyline users more often reported fatigue (30%) and dry mouth (25%), whereas topiramate users more often reported parathesia (31%) (burning or prickling sensation that is usually felt in the hands, arms, legs, or feet, but can also occur in other parts of the body), and weight loss (8%).  Other side-effects reported with topirimate included, fatigue (25%), dry mouth (18%), memory impairment (17%), aphasia (16%), cognitive disorder (16%), and upper respiratory tract infection (12%).  Serious adverse events included altered mood in three patients in the amitriptyine group and one suicide attempt in the topiramate group.

Before the trial was concluded, the Food and Drug Administration approved topiramate for the treatment of episodic migraine in adolescents aged 12-17 years.

“Given the null outcome in this trial and the adverse events and serious adverse events reported in the amitriptyline and topiramate groups, the data do not show a favorable risk-benefit profile for the use of these therapies in pediatric migraine prevention, at least over the 24-week duration of the trial,” the study authors concluded.

If you are a parent of a young migraine sufferer, consider MigreLief nutritional migraine supplements.

Teen Migraines

September 12th, 2016

Help for Teenagers with Migraines

Migraines are extremely painful and often debilitating for teens and children.  Just like adults, teens can also experience dizziness, vertigo, nausea, sensitivity to light and noise, a lack of energy, disturbed vision and other symptoms.

Teen  migraines are often different than adult migraines. While adult migraines often last several hours or more and settle on one side of the head, in a child or young teen,  a migraine may last for as little as one hour  and the pain is often felt across the front of the forehead or on both temples.

As a result, childhood migraines are often dismissed as sinus headaches.  Some pediatric migraines don’t involve headache pain at all.  Instead, the child or teen may have abdominal pain, vomiting or feelings of vertigo.

The attacks may be shorter, but after the migraine disappears it can cause an ill feeling that can be even worse than the head pain. Of course symptoms can vary from child to child and can also vary from one attack to the next.

No matter how you look at it, migraines are not something we’d want to wish on our worst enemy, let alone our child.

Children & Teens – migraine dilemma

Parents often dismiss headache complaints by kids & teens, or merely address the problem with a painkiller  not knowing their child may be on a path to a lifetime of suffering migraines.  Researchers are discovering the more migraines a person has, the greater the tendency for future migraines. Evidence shows an increased sensitivity after each successive attack, eventually leading to chronic daily migraines in some individuals. It would follow that in order for children to avoid a lifetime of migraines, it is imperative to lower the frequency of attacks as soon as possible.
 

The devastating effects on teens who suffer from migraines

Migraines in teens (as well as adults) can be disabling. They can cause frequently missed school days, a need to miss sports, work and other activities, and according to a University of Colorado at Denver study, teens who suffer from migraine headaches are also more likely to get lower grades and have a lesser chance of even graduating high school or attending college.

The results of the study found that migraines are an important obstacle to long-term academic success with sufferers having trouble attending school and concentrating on those days they are in school.

The teenage years are already a very difficult time in life, and with migraines they can seem impossible. With the natural response during a migraine attack to shut down and withdraw from the world, sufferers feel a sense of abandonment, which is extremely damaging during adolescence.

Surveys have found that almost every migraine sufferer’s life is negatively affected forcing them to avoid activities like:

  • Doing chores around the home
  • Taking part in favorite hobbies
  • Spending time with family and friends
  • Attending school
  • Making future plans
The Research Institute at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in the USA published data in the medical journal, Headache – 2009, that proves a link between children suffering from migraine and  emotional disorders.  According to the study, “children suffering from migraines are at risk of developing emotional and behavioral problems such as depression and anxiety”.

A study in 2007 found that teens who suffer from migraines have a higher risk of suicide and also a greater chance of developing mental disorders in addition to the headaches. 21% were found to develop major depression and 19% were found to experience panic attacks.

Migraine triggers in teens 

While migraines can be unpredictable, it’s important to become aware of certain triggers. Sometimes by setting up a regular routine and avoiding known triggers, attacks can be minimized.

Teens, like adults, and sometimes even more so, can be severely affected by stress. Incorporating stress reduction activities like deep breathing and meditation can be helpful in lessening migraine attacks.

Some common migraine triggers include:

  • Hormone changes such as just before the menstrual period begins
  • Skipping meals
  • Not getting enough rest
  • Alcohol
  • Stress
  • Physical activity
  • Extreme heat
  • Certain smells
  • Certain foods, in particular those with additives, preservatives or dyes.
  • Bright lights
  • Weather changes
  • Medications
  • Motion sickness during road trips
  • Changes in routine

Options for teens with chronic migraines-
Conventional Treatment 

Many popular drugs on the market today are not well tolerated by adults much less something to which a parent would want to subject their adolescent or vibrant young. Dry mouth, fatigue, difficulty concentrating are just a few of the potential side-effects.

“Parents should be aware that our medication choices aren’t as good as they should be,” Dr. Jennifer Bickel, a neurologist and headache specialist at  Children’s Mercy Hospitals and Clinics in Kansas City, Missouri, told Genevra Pittman at Reuters Health.

There are not many medications for treating children’s migraines that are without major controversy, especially the class of medication known as Triptans. If you do your own research, you will see in journals where triptans (such as Children’s Imitrex) are being considered or even approved for children by the FDA, but you will find as many or more articles saying that triptans are in no way safe for children. The only medicine deemed “safe” for treating children’s migraines is ibuprofen. Anyone who has suffered a migraine will tell you that ibuprofen doesn’t begin to mitigate the pain, nor will it prevent future migraines.

Topamax (topiramate), a medication to treat children’s migraines prophylactically (preventively) is an anti-convulsant used to control epilepsy and has also been promoted as a weight loss drug. This same drug has been shown in clinical trials to cause a full 27% of child test subjects to lose weight. Other side effects are known to be upper respiratory infection, anorexia, and paresthesia. These were the results of the only major clinical study conducted on topiramate for children. Outside of the general discussion of Topamax’s side effects, one source (http://epilepsy.emedtv.com) cited that side effects such as memory loss or difficulty concentrating make it difficult to tolerate Topamax. Such side effects could be devastating for a school student, especially if the child already suffers from ADHD.

Additionally, if the child is already being treated pharmacologically for ADHD, depression, anxiety, stress, anorexia, or anything requiring medication, adding yet another medication to those already stressing the child’s body is simply unsound at best, and life-threatening at worst. Combining other medications, especially antidepressants, with migraine medications such as those mentioned above can raise serotonin levels too much and result in serotonin syndrome. 

According to an article in the New England Journal of Medicine, “Serotonin syndrome is a potentially life-threatening adverse drug reaction that may occur following therapeutic drug use, or as an inadvertent interaction between drugs.” Even a commonly used over-the-counter cough suppressant ingredient, dextromethorphan, combined with a migraine medication can cause serotonin syndrome.

Prevention is key for children and teens who suffer chronic migraines.

Nutritional Alternative 

Adressing migraines nutritionally is an effective alternative without the harmful side-effects associated with other medications.

Nutritional supplements and herbs such as the patented active ingredients in MigreLief; feverfew, magnesium and riboflavin are known to work through several mechanisms of action including keeping the blood flowing properly in the brain. When the blood is flowing the way it should, there may be less liklihood of sudden spasms and inflammation.  These triple therapy ingredients also help to reestablish and maintain normal cerebrovascular tone and function.

Nutritional deficiencies and imbalances often associated with migraines can lead to dysfunctional brain processes such as:  *Excessive Platelet Aggregation (the clumping together of blood cells) resulting in blood vessel changes and the decrease in the brain’s cellular energy reserves (cells lose energy production ability when the powerhouses of the cells (the mitochondria) become dysfunctional due to nutritional deficiencies).
Migraine Help for TeensA VITAMIN, A MINTERAL AND A PLANT
We understand that as a parent, you want, not only to have your child’s pain relieved, but you also do not want them to consume anything that would further harm them. That’s the beauty of the “Triple Therapy Approach” of MigreLief.  There are three well known ingredients/mechanisms of action listed in the American Academy of Neurology’s Evidence Based Guidelines for Migraine Prevention, working at the cellular level to solve the problem.

  • Magnesium
  • Riboflavin/B-2
  • Feverfew-whole leaf and extract.

There are no negative side-effects associated with the ingredients in MigreLief or Children’s MigreLief  (formulated for ages 2 -11.)  With MigreLief, there also is no concern about drug interaction with most other medications a child might be taking.

Daily Maintenance vs. “As-Needed”

Dream Team for Migraines -Original MigreLief was formulated to be taken daily to maintain normal cerebrovascular function.  But what do you do if a migraine or headache should occurr?

MigreLief-NOW is Akeso Health Sciences fast acting acute formula to be taken at the first sign of discomfort.  The dose for children 2-11 is 1/2 the regular dose.  Recommended dosage for adults and teens is to take  2-4 capsules immediately and 2 more 2 hours later if needed.


Teenagers have a lot going on in their lives and do not need to be handicapped with disabling migraines. By avoiding common triggers, staying well hydrated, and taking a nutritional approach to migraines, young adults have a great chance of getting their life back.

Children’s Migraines – The Biggest, Baddest Bully

June 9th, 2016

bully and migrainesIn society today, parents have so many things to worry about when it comes to their children.  The behavior of other children is usually high on any parents’ concern list.   The stress caused to a child by a bully is unimaginable and it is difficult to ease their pain, and both emotional and physical stress.  Now imagine helping your child cope with an unseen bully who strikes viciously without warning.  Most parents would risk life and limb to protect their child, but what happens if this vicious bully is not flesh and blood, but an acute medical condition?

Parents and Health Care Professionals Now Have a Safe Option for Children with Migraines
Children's Migraine Relief Help

On the government sponsored anti-bullying website, bullying is defined as unwanted, aggressive behavior among school aged children, which involve a real or perceived power imbalance. The behavior is repeated, or has the potential to be repeated, over time.    Likewise, migraine is defined as a recurrent throbbing headache that typically affects one side of the head and is often excruciating pain accompanied by nausea or vomiting and disturbed vision. Migraine attacks are known to come on quickly and attack aggressively, usually with no warning.  Migraines can be very frightening and can be hard to get a handle on for anyone, especially children.

Like a bully who terrorizes your child, causes pain and harms their self-esteem, frequent migraines and headache attacks often accompanied by nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain, can sabotage your child’s well-being as well. Some people believe bullying is a part of growing up and it provides kids an opportunity to stand up to those who are stronger than them. In the same way, people often dismiss children’s migraines believing they will go away on their own. Unfortunately, migraines often persist long into adulthood for many sufferers as a matter of fact, half of all adults with migraines had their first attack before the age of 12.  Frequent migraines and headaches can have long-term negative consequences as they often hinder your child’s performance at school, damage their self-esteem and lead to depression.

It is almost certain that children who suffer from migraine headaches have the same stress in their lives as children who are terrorized by bullies at school.  When a child is bullied, they experience daily fear, knowing the terror is coming, much like migraine sufferers live with the stress of knowing an onset could arise at any time. Victims of bullying feel trapped, helpless and small. Unable to deal with their problem, they display physical symptoms like stress headaches, stomach-ache, agitation, restlessness, changes in appetite, dizziness, and general aches and pains. Psychological symptoms often include irritability, anxiety, sadness, trouble sleeping, and tiredness in the mornings, loneliness, helplessness, and feeling isolated.

Children with recurrent migraines experience these same symptoms and are very likely to miss school and other activities. Research shows almost 80% of children who suffer from migraines have trouble coping with normal day-to-day routines.  The sense of vulnerability caused by migraines hinders their performance in school and causes frequent emotional changes, such as anxiety and sadness.  Only frequent migraine sufferers know the ultimate sacrifices you have to make in your daily life in order to deal with the pain they bring.  Wondering and worrying about the next migraine attack when you feel helpless affects the entire family and is debilitating to both parents and children.

Help and Hope for Children with Migraines
No parent wants to see their child suffer.  But so often parents feel helpless too and do just that, standby and watch their child suffer a migraine attack.  This is because Children do not have many safe options when it comes to fighting migraines.  Many prescription and OTC medications are difficult for adults to tolerate much-less children.  Many medications also, just don’t work.  So what is a parent to do?

First of fall, never dismiss symptoms of migraine in children.  Preschool children may or may not have head pain and merely look ill with abdominal pain and vomiting. They may become irritable, cry, seek out a darkened room and often sleep an hour after onset. After the age of 5 children often experience migraines similar to adults; pulsating pain on one side of the head, visual disturbances (aura), vertigo, and sensitivity to light, sound and smells.

Team MigreLief – A Powerful Force
Recommended by pediatric neurologists nationwide,  Children’s MigreLief and MigreLief-NOW can make a world of difference and is a great place to start.  Both of these dietary supplements by Akeso Health Sciences contain ingredients known to make a positive difference in children age 2 and older who suffer migraines.  Children’s MigreLief is to be taken twice daily by kids with chronic migraines (multiple migraines per month) to maintain the normal cerebrovascular tone and function they experience on non-migraine days.  MigreLief-NOW is a rescue formula to be taken on an ‘as needed’ basis.    It is important to note that MigreLief-NOW is not meant to replace Children’s MigreLief which must be taken daily by chronic sufferers.  NOW may be kept on hand at all times and used in conjunction with Children’s MigreLief as needed.  Large children or teens 12 and above may take Original MigreLief, Akeso’s adult daily formula.

If you have a child or know of a child being bullied by migraines, let MigreLief make a difference.

JUNE is Migraine Awareness Month… Children Get Chronic Migraines Too! Pediatric Migraine Facts:

May 28th, 2013

2013 Migraine Awareness Month - Children with Migraines

Many people don’t know that children also get migraines.  Every day millions of parents watch helplessly as their children suffer from debilitating migraine attacks.

Migraines in children often go undiagnosed because unlike adults, children can not easily communicate to their parents or physicians just what type of symptoms they’re experiencing.

Many times they’re too young to articulate what they’re feeling so migraines go untreated for a long time.  In many cases crying, lack of focus  and symptoms of depression are attributed to things other than the actual problem.

Fortunately children who suffer chronic migraines are great candidates for prevention.

CHILDREN’S MIGRAINE SYMPTOMS SHOULD NOT BE DISMISSED…

Migraines interfere with all aspects of a child’s life, cause permanent changes in the brain, and can lead to increased risk of depression.  Because it can be difficult for children to convince their parents or teachers that they are really sick, their attendance in school and academic achievement may suffer making it difficult to catch up and adding more undue stress to their lives.

PEDIATRIC MIGRAINE FACTS:

– A migraine is a type of severe, incapacitating headache that can strike suddenly and often with accompanying symptoms of nausea, abdominal pain and vomiting.   They are often recurrent.

– About one out of every 10 kids, or nearly 8 million children in the United States alone are plagued by what has become the most common acute and recurrent headache pattern experienced by children today.

– Migraines may occur with or without aura and last in children from 30 minutes to 48 hours. (Migraine aura is the collective name given to the many types of neurological symptoms that may occur just before or during a migraine such as visual, sensory, motor or verbal disturbance.)

– Common precursors and symptoms of child migraine; cyclical vomiting, abdominal migraine pain, vertigo, and sensitivity to light.

-Approximately 20% of children with migraines have their first attack before the age of 5.

-Approximately 20% of adult migraine sufferers report onset before age 10.

-Migraines are more common in boys than girls until girls begin menstruation

– Migraine in children can differ from migraine in adults. Non-headache and neurological symptoms (aura) may be more prominent than the headache.

– Child Migraine is often underdiagnosed by doctors, possibly due to the prominence of non-headache symptoms

The Four Stages of Migraine Headaches

Migraines often progress through four stages. Your child may or may not have all four stages. And the stages may not be the same every time a migraine occurs.

  • Prodrome. In this early stage, your child may feel tired, uneasy, or moody. It may be hours or days before the headache pain begins.
  • Aura. Up to an hour before a migraine, your child may experience an aura (odd smells, sights, or sounds). This may include flashing lights, blind spots, other vision problems, confusion, or trouble speaking.
  • Headache. Your child has pain in one or both sides of the head. Your child may feel nauseated and have a strong sensitivity to light, sound, and odors. Vomiting and/or diarrhea may also occur. This stage can last anywhere from 48-72 hours.
  • Postdrome or recovery.  For about a day after the headache ends, your child may feel tired, achy, and exhausted.

What Causes Migraine Headaches?

It is not clear why migraines occur. If a family member has migraines, your child may be more likely to have them. Many people find that their migraines are set off by a “trigger.” Common migraine triggers include:

  • -Chemicals in certain foods and drinks, such as aged cheeses, luncheon meats, chocolate, coffee, sodas, foods containing MSG. etc.
  • -Chemicals in the air, such as tobacco smoke, perfume, glue, paint, or cleaning products
  • -Dehydration
  • -Not enough sleep
  • -Hormonal changes in the body during puberty
  • -Environmental factors, such as bright or flashing lights, hot sun, weather or air pressure changes

What Are the Symptoms of Migraine Headaches?

Your child may have some or all of the following symptoms:

  • -Pain, often severe, occurring in a specific area of the head (such as behind one eye)
  • -Aura (odd smells, sights, or sounds)
  • -Nausea and/or vomiting, or diarrhea
  • -Sensitivity to light or sound

How Are Migraine Headaches Prevented and Treated?

The goal is to try to stop a migraine headache in its early stages.

  • Work with your child to learn his or her triggers. Then, you can talk about ways to avoid these triggers when possible.
  • Have a nonsteriodal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), such as ibuprofen, available to your child at all times. This includes during school and after-school activities. If your child feels the prodrome or aura stage of migraine, he or she should take the NSAID right away. (Be sure your child follows the dosage instructions given by the health care provider.)

If your child’s headache pain has already started:

  • Give the child a dose of an NSAID  such as Ibuprofen
  • Have him or her lie down in a dark, quiet room.
  • Apply a cold compress over your child’s face and eyes (if your child wishes).
  • Have your child stay quiet and still until the pain goes away.

Call your child’s health care provider right away if your child has any of the following:

  • Fever and stiff neck with a headache
  • In an infant under 3 months old, a rectal temperature of 100.4°F (38.0°C) or higher
  • In a child 3 to 36 months, a rectal temperature of 102°F (39.0°C) or higher
  • In a child of any age who has a temperature of 103°F (39.4°C) or higher
  • A fever that lasts more than 24-hours in a child under 2 years old, or for 3 days in a child 2 years or older
  • A seizure caused by the fever
  • Headache pain that does not respond to NSAIDs
  • Headache pain that seems different or much worse than previous episodes
  • Headache upon awakening or in the middle of the night
  • Dizziness, clumsiness, or other changes with a headache
  • Migraines that happen more than once a week or suddenly increase in frequency

PREVENTION IS KEY – TO SUCCESSFUL MIGRAINE CONTROL

Why you should control your child’s migraines NOW rather than later:

Researchers are discovering “migraines beget migraines” – the more migraines one has, the greater the tendency for future migraines. Evidence shows an increased sensitivity after each successive attack, eventually leading to chronic daily migraines in some individuals. In order to avoid a lifetime of migraines, it is imperative to lower the frequency and intensity of migraines as soon as possible.

Can Migraines Affect the Cognitive Performance of Your Child?

May 26th, 2011

Boy Studying Image - Migraines affect cognitive function

The cognitive performance of 30 children between the ages of 8-12 years old, with migraines, was compared to the cognitive performance of 30 similarly aged children, without migraines, using the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children.

The  study, which was conducted at the department of Neurology and Neurosurgery at the Federal University of Sao Paulo, in Brazil, found that despite the fact that both groups exhibited normal cognitive performance, the children with migraines had much lower scores in the areas of arithmetic, vocabulary, perceptual organization and resistance to distraction and processing speed.

Future studies, aimed to see if preventing migraines in these children would raise their cognitive performance levels in these areas where they were low, would be of significant interest.

At Last! Safe Relief For Children’s Migraines – The First Natural Migraine Supplement Just for Kids

December 29th, 2010

At Last! Safe Relief for Children’s Migraines!
The First Natural Migraine Supplement Just for Kids – Children’s MigreLief

 

LOS ANGELES, Dec. 23, 2010 /PRNewswire/ — MigreLief, the first name in migraine prevention, releases a safe and proven effective supplement for children of all ages:

 

One of the hardest things for a parent to do is to see their child in pain.  Yet every day millions of parents must watch helplessly as their children suffer from debilitating attacks.  About one out of every ten kids, or nearly 8 million children in the United States alone, are plagued by what has become the most common acute and recurrent headache pattern experienced by children today.

“Be it supplement, OTC drug or prescription drug, Children’s MigreLief is the first and only therapy developed specifically for children suffering from migraine headaches,” explains Curt Hendrix M.S. C.C.N, C.N.S., scientist and creator of Children’s MigreLief.  These often incapacitating experiences strike suddenly and often with accompanying symptoms of nausea, abdominal pain and vomiting. Until now, the only option available was the use of side-effect prone prescription medications actually causing more migraines, known as rebound headaches. But Children’s MigreLief offers parents of children suffering migraines a safe nutritional option, with none of the potentially disruptive side-effects of prescription drugs.

Hendrix explains, “There is NOT one prescription drug approved by the FDA for use by children with migraines. The side-effects of these drugs are significant in adults and not an option most parents would want to subject a child to. Children’s MigreLief is the perfect solution… a vitamin, a mineral and a plant, all well known for their safety, efficacy and low side-effects to establish normal vascular function instead of a lifetime on pain killers and abortive drugs.”

MigreLief contains a patented “Triple Therapy” approach to reestablishing normal cerebrovascular tone and function that is disrupted in children who have migraines.  Nutritional deficiencies, inflammation, and vasospasm can independently and together contribute to migraine occurrence, frequency and intensity.  Children’s MigreLief contains the same “Triple Therapy” ingredients as MigreLief but with dosages and pill sizes adjusted to meet the needs of children.

MigreLief’s ingredients; Puracol, a proprietary blend of two unique Feverfew sources, Magnesium from two sources and high dose, highly absorbable Riboflavin (Vitamin B-2) have all independently been shown to be of significant preventive benefit to chronic migraine sufferers.

All MigreLief products are available in select pharmacies and online at MigreLief.com.  For more information and product samples contact sales@akesohealth.com.
