HeadAid General FAQs

Q: Is your product FDA approved?

A: Our products are GRAS approved, no product in dietary supplements have “FDA Approvals” products in this category must meet GRAS to be accepted safe and marketable in the United States. (Read More About GRAS Here) 

Q: Do I need my doctor's approval to take HeadAid?

A: HeadAid does not require a prescription. However, it is recommended that you speak with your physician or headache specialist regarding drug interactions if you are taking any other medications.

Q:  I want to start the HeadAid Daily formulation preparation, but is it OK --- if needed—to combine it with the Fast-Acting formulations in the same 24 hours?

A: It is safe to combine HeadAid Fast Acting formulas with the HeadAid Daily formula. The amount of magnesium within one dose of HeadAid Daily was chosen so no one would risk too high of levels when combining with other HeadAid products.  Assuming the patient has no end stage renal disease (in which case it is not recommended that they take any Magnesium supplements).
 

Q: Can I take HeadAid while pregnant or breastfeeding? 

A: It is recommended that one should consult with their physician prior to using HeadAid if they are breastfeeding or pregnant. 
 

Q. How often can I take the HeadAid Fast-Acting sticks?

A: The fast-acting sticks, like other fast-acting supplements and medications for migraine, should be limited to 10-12 days a month to avoid overuse. If you are finding your headaches are more frequent than this, HeadAid's daily product may help decrease the frequency of migraine attacks, or you may need to consult a physician.
 

Q. The fast-acting sticks were working really well, but now don't seem to help as much. Why is this?  

A: You may be overusing HeadAid fast-acting. As noted above, it shouldn't be used more than 10-12days a month, or its benefit is diminished.  Similarly, if you are using other prescription or over-the-counter medications to stop headaches when they begin, this could also be causing refractory, "rebound" headaches from medication overuse. In these cases, it is best to consult a physician to develop a comprehensive plan.

Q. How do I know if I should take 1 or 2 sticks of HeadAid?

A: It is best to start with 1 stick whether you are trying the daily or the fast-acting version of HeadAid. We recommend that for the daily, you start with 1 stick at night, and, if tolerated, increase to 2sticks at night. For the fast-acting sticks, we recommend first trying 1 stick at the onset of a migraine, and if the headache is still there 1-2hours later, taking a second stick. Some may find they do best taking 2 sticks at the onset.
 

Q. Can I take HeadAid with my other migraine medications?

A: HeadAid was designed to work in conjunction with frequently used medications and supplements for migraine without risk of interaction.  It is safe to use HeadAid with NSAIDs (i.e. ibuprofen, naprosyn), anti-histamines, triptans (i.e. imitrex), ergots, and prescription preventive medications.  If you have a specific concern about a potential drug interaction, please consult your physician.
 

Q. Can I mix HeadAid with liquids other than water?

A: Yes, HeadAid will dissolve in any liquid, or even a smoothie!  However, please note that the effervescence may diminish depending on the viscosity of the liquid, and that using a beverage that may trigger migraines (i.e. ones with aspartame), is not recommended.
 

Q. What is the rationale behind the ingredients in HeadAid?

A: Please see the rationale under each product page.  Our ingredients were chosen based on the best scientific evidence available for supplements in migraine. 
 

Q. I've seen butterbur in a lot of other migraine nutraceuticals. Why isn't this included in HeadAid? 

A: Butterbur has been removed from the shelves of many countries for its potential acute liver toxicity.  Because of this, and melatonin's great benefits, we chose to develop our daily product around melatonin rather than butterbur.

As a senior healthcare executive  and entrepreneur, HeadAid is the  latest company that Mr. Kinder, along with his founding partners, are launching to address the symptoms of an important health condition. By using a combination of natural ingredients that are  well known and clinically studied to have demonstrated to dramatically improve the symptom of the patient.

With combined experience of over 30 years in healthcare and consumer products, Mr. Kinder successfully delivers programs and services, designed and tailored to meet the needs of the practice, patient and the consumer. He combines his experiences in medical devices, health and wellness software, physician training and targeted medical nutrition to create businesses that deliver value.

 His experience in large, multi national corporations as well as start-ups, has enabled him to enjoy many successful commercial launches.  Most recently, he has executed the build up and exit in a health and wellness software as service (SAS) enterprise that was adopted by companies like, Atkins, Curves and Philips Healthcare. Prior to that, he launched a “garage” start-up in targeted medical nutrition to address the patient nutritional needs in obesity that earned a market share of over 90% in the US and could be purchased in over 22 countries outside the the US, spanning 4 continents.

 “Because of the size of the headache market (over 50million patients) combined with the unmet need of both the patient and the physician, I believe that HeadAid could be the most important breakthrough that I have been involved with in my professional career.”

 Dr Scripko is a neurologist with a special interest in headache.  Since her pre-teens, she has suffered from migraine, but grew up assuming everyone had them given the prevalence within her family.  It was not until she was in medical school at the Cleveland Clinic/Case Western that she understood how debilitating the headaches and accompanying symptoms could be. Her visual auras frequently obstructed her sight, making long hours reading and typing difficult.  This was only exacerbated by profound photophobia (light sensitivity) under the fluorescents in the hospital.  Traveling to conferences had to be planned around her motion sickness and jet lag, leaving time to recoup before her first meetings and minimizing time in cabs. Long days and nights on call during her neurology residency at Harvard (Massachusetts General Hospital and Brigham and Women's Hospital) left her fatigued, with near daily headaches, nausea,  light-headedness (sometimes resulting in passing out), and light sensitivity.  She learned her headache triggers, avoiding any "diet," aspartame-containing products, dehydration, MSG, alcohol, and areas in the hospital where certain cleaners, and their odor, were apparent.  When she was able, she improved her sleeping pattern, and moved to a less humid climate. Finally, the trying years with migraine were over, and she was back to having the infrequent headache, knowing at times they would gain momentum due to unavoidable changes in her routine.  


Unfortunately, her story strikes a chord with far too many migraine sufferers.  Because of this, she established both an inpatient program for her patients with chronic migraines, and an outpatient program geared towards breaking bad headache cycles while finding a plan to get patients to their "best headache baseline."  Her patients led her to learn more about supplements, vitamins and minerals with respect to these plans.  This is how she became involved in "HeadAid."  Through this involvement, she hopes to contribute to patients' and care providers' knowledge of treatments for and the pathophysiology of migraine, so more people can have a successful migraine ending as she does.
