  • Children's MigreLief FAQs

When can my child take Original MigreLief instead of Children’s MigreLief?

Under: Children's MigreLief FAQs, FAQs

Children’s MigreLief is formulated for ages 2-12. Original MigreLief is formulated for teens and adults.  For children over the age of 12 or over one hundred pounds in weight, we suggest starting with one caplet of Original MigreLief per day (as opposed to Children’s MigreLief).  If well-tolerated increase to 2 caplets per day, one in the a.m. and one in the p.m.

If your 2-11-year-old child is taking 1 caplet twice a day of Children’s MigreLief and has not seen any benefit by day 60, increase the dosing to 2 caplets in the a.m. and 1 in the p.m.  Confirm that this does not cause diarrhea.  Some people are sensitive to magnesium in supplements although MigreLief formulas contain less than the U.S. RDA (recommended daily allowance). If diarrhea does occur due to the extra magnesium, it should resolve within 2-3 days. If it does not then finish the 90 day period by taking 1 caplet twice a day of Children’s Migrelief.

If your child easily tolerates the addition of the one extra a.m. caplet, then try adding an extra p.m. caplet as well and monitor benefits achieved by day 90.  If you notice a real improvement in your child, then continue at this daily dose. At this point, if your child is taking 2 Children’s a.m. caplets and 2 p.m. caplets per day, upon your next order you can switch to Original MigreLief as long as your child can swallow the larger caplet.

Note:  MigreLief Original or Children’s MigreLief can be crushed and mixed with food such as applesauce, yogurt, peanut butter, etc. for easier swallowing.

MigreLief daily formulas (Original or Children’s) have a build-up period where the supplement grows in effectiveness over 90 days, so don’t give up on MigreLief for 90 days.  We offer a money-back guarantee if purchased from and used for 90 days, which is sufficient time for it to reach maximum benefits.

During the build-up period, we suggest taking fast-acting MigreLief-NOW “as-needed” for on-the-spot neurological comfort.  Taking a daily MigreLief formula and combining it with MigreLief-NOW “as-needed” (also known as the MigreLief Nutritional Regimen for migraine sufferers, adds additional nutritional benefits.
