How long will it take for my child to get results using Children’s MigreLief?

January 22nd, 2019

We strongly recommend that you wait for 90 days to determine if Children’s MigreLief has helped your child. It takes that long for the ingredients to build up optimal levels in the body.

If I observe improvement in my child after using Children’s MigreLief for 90 days, what do I do then?

January 22nd, 2019

If improvement is observed we suggest continuing at the same dosing for as long as the child is still having some migraines, even if they are less frequent and gentler. If on the other hand the migraines stop completely for a period of at least 3 months, it may be informative to stop the Children’s MigreLief to see if perhaps the child has outgrown his or her migraines and no longer needs the nutritional support that the Children’s MigreLief provides. Children’s MigreLief can be restarted if necessary.

Can I give my child more than 2 Children’s MigreLief caplets?

January 22nd, 2019

If your child is tolerating the 2 caplets per day that are recommended and results are not optimal, you can add a 3rd caplet for children up to 8 years old and even a 4th caplet for children 9 years old and above, as long as you don’t notice any gastrointestinal complaints or diarrhea that lasts for more than 2-3 days. As with all dietary supplements, we suggest that you let you child’s pediatrician know that your child is taking Children’s MigreLief.

Are there any side-effects that my child might experience taking Children’s Migrelief.

January 22nd, 2019

There are no specific side-effects associated with the ingredients in Children’s MigreLief and childhood use. But with that said, both dietary supplements and medicines can cause gastrointestinal upset in susceptible users. Also though the dosage of magnesium in Children’s MigreLief is lowered to reflect the needs of children, in sensitive users magnesium can cause transient diarrhea, which should resolve in 1-3 days. This is why we suggest you start with just one Children’s Migrelief for the first few days and then increase the dosage to two caplets per day.

When is my child old enough to take the original MigreLief product for adults?

January 22nd, 2019

For children over the age of 13 or over one hundred pounds in weight, we suggest starting one caplet per day of MigreLief and if well tolerated increase to 2 caplets per day………If your 2-11 year old child is taking 1 caplet twice a day of childrens formula and has not seen any benefit by day 60, increase the dosing to 2 caplets in the AM and 1 in the PM and confirm that this does not cause diarrhea. If diarrhea does occur due to the extra magnesium, it should resolve in no more than 2-3 days. If it does not then finish the 90 day period taking 1 caplet twice a day of Children’s Migrelief If your child easily tolerates the addition of the one extra AM pill, then try adding an extra PM caplet as well and monitor benefits achieved by day 90.  If you notice real improvement in your child, then continue at this daily dose. At this point if your child is taking 2 Childrens AM caplets and 2 PM caplets per day, upon your next order you can switch to Original MigreLief as long as your child can swallow the larger caplet.

What is a Migraine?

January 22nd, 2019

A migraine headache is a form of vascular (blood vessels) headache. Migraine headache is caused by a combination of vasodilatation (enlargement of blood vessels) and the release of chemicals from nerve fibers that coil around the blood vessels. During a migraine attack, the temporal artery enlarges. (The temporal artery is an artery that lies on the outside of the skull just under the skin of the temple.) Enlargement of the temporal artery stretches the nerves that coil around the artery and causes the nerves to release chemicals. The chemicals cause inflammation, pain, and further enlargement of the artery. The increasing enlargement of the artery magnifies the pain. The above results in periodic attacks of headaches on one or both sides of the head. These may be accompanied by nausea, vomiting, increased sensitivity of the eyes to light (photophobia) with visual disturbance and flashes (aura), increased sensitivity to sound (phonophobia), dizziness, blurred vision, cognitive disturbances, and other symptoms. Some migraines have these symptoms but do not include headache, and migraines may or may not be preceded by an aura.

What is the difference between a migraine and a headache?

January 22nd, 2019

The difference between a migraine headache and a tension headache is that while a tension headache involves the muscles and fascia of the scalp and neck tightening and causing pain, a migraine involves a large chemical change that affects the entire body. Blood vessels in the brain become wider, serotonin is lowered, and nerves misfire – causing severe pain – along with a host of other symptoms like those mentioned above that usually do not occur in non-migraine headaches.

Headache Migraine
Duration Hours to days 4 to 72 hours
Location Over the entire head Often one-sided but not always
Intensity of Pain Mild to moderate Often Severe
Nature Dull, pressing Pounding, throbbing, increases with activity
Other Symptoms Minimal to none Nausea, vomiting, sensitivity to light, sound, odors
