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.

Concussion


 

Q: What is a concussion?

A: A concussion is any blow to the body or head that causes the brain to move back and forth within the skull.

Q: Does HeadAid work for concussion?

A: Yes! Please keep reading for more datails. 

Q: How does HeadAid help concussion acutely?

A: An acute concussion is often riddled with migrainous symptoms (headache, nausea, vomiting, brain fog, light and sound sensitivity).  HeadAid addresses these symptoms as follows:

Q: How does HeadAid help "post-concussive syndrome"?

A: Concussion and post-concussive symptoms are very similar to migraine symptoms.  Headache, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, imbalance, concentration troubles, brain fog, light and sound sensitivity often predominate and debilitate the concussed.  Current recommendation is to treat symptomatically, as one would otherwise treat these symptoms if there were indeed from a primary migraine disorder.  HeadAid addresses the following symptoms of concussion as follows:

HeadAid Daily– taken nightly to aid daily symptoms over time

- Magnesium helps with light, sound sensitivity and headache. Magnesium levels are low after a concussion and magnesium is necessary to block the excitotoxic damage from concussion

- Melatonin helps with headache and with regulating the sleep-wake cycle.  Melatonin has been shown useful in overall symptomatic treatment and recovery in the concussed

-  Co-Q10 helps with headache, potentially by stabilizing mitochondria in the brain after a concussive injury

HeadAid Fast-Acting Night – taken at the onset of symptoms when trying to "sleep them off"

     - Magnesium helps acutely with headache, light and sound sensitivity. Magnesium levels are low after a concussion and magnesium is necessary to block the excitotoxic damage from concussion

     - Chamomile helps get a good night's sleep

     - 5-HTP helps get a good night's sleep and aids acutely with headache

     - Ginger helps with even the most severe nausea and vomiting

HeadAid Fast-Acting Day – taken at the onset of symptoms when trying to "work through it"

     - Magnesium helps acutely with headache, light and sound sensitivity. Magnesium levels are low after a concussion and magnesium is necessary to block the                 excitotoxic damage from concussion

     - Caffeine helps with brain fog and headache

     - Ginger helps with even the most severe nausea and vomiting 

Q: Where can I get more information on concussion?

A: We recommend checking out the CDC's "HeadsUp" campaign for videos and a wealth of written information on concussion & post-concussive syndrome : https://www.cdc.gov/headsup/

 

Children's


Q: I have migraines as a parent. Is it likely my kids have migraine?

A: Yes!  Migraine seems to be highly genetic, with up to 90% of persons with migraine having a family history of it.  Typically, it's maternally inherited (from the mother's side).  So, if your child is starting to complain of headaches or unexplained, recurrent abdominal pain, it may be migraine.

Q: How are childhood migraines different than those in adulthood?

A:  Often, children get more abdominal symptoms, or simply "abdominal migraine."  This often presents as recurrent, unexplained abdominal pain.  If you think your child may be suffering from migraine or abdominal migraine, start tracking their symptoms and follow up with your pediatrician.

Q: Is HeadAid safe to use in kids?

A: Our "Daily" product is safe to use in children aged 12 and over at the dose of 1 stick pack at night. Please consult your physician before using this product in younger children,or in higher doses. We recommend you consult your physician before using the "Fast Acting" products in children.

Q: Does HeadAid have a "children's" version?

A: Our "Daily" product is formulated for both adults (1-2packs at night) and kids over 12 years old (1pack at night).  Please consult your physician before using our "Fast Acting" products on children.

Q: How Does HeadAid help children's migraines?

A: The same way it helps adults. Many people have migraine from childhood through adulthood. While the brain is still developing and myelinating until the early to mid-20s, HeadAid's actions on the symptoms of migraine (headache, light sensitivity, nausea, vomiting, sound sensitivity) are the same.  Please see our individual product pages to learn about each ingredient's benefits on migraine symptoms.
