Blackmores Reme-D For Migraine Cap X 60
What happens during a migraine?
Migraines are thought to be caused in part by over excitability of specific cells in the brain. When stimulated, the cells release chemicals that lead to the headache pain, nausea, vomiting and sensitivity to light and sound.
Some migraine sufferers will experience premonitory symptoms such as fatigue, nausea and sensitivity to light or sound in the 1-2 days leading up to a migraine (not to be confused with aura).
Approximately 15%-30% of migraine sufferers experience visual (and occasionally other sensory) disturbances called 'auras' such as flashing lights or spots, 5 minutes to 1 hour before the onset of a migraine.
Feverfew's role in the management of migraine
Feverfew has been used for centuries in Western herbal medicine to treat headaches. The World Health Organisation states that feverfew may be effective for reducing the frequency of migraine headaches, however the link between the active components in feverfew and how they assist with migraine management is yet to be fully understood.
Feverfew may take between 4-16 weeks to have an effect, and therefore is not designed for acute symptomatic relief. When taken regularly, feverfew may assist with the management of migraine by reducing the frequency of migraine headache attacks and associated nausea and vomiting.
* It is advised that if users wish to stop taking feverfew after a period of more than a few months, that the daily dosage be gradually decreased over the preceding month to avoid rebound headache
