Review of "Migraleve Complete Migraine Treatment"
From the age of three I have suffered from migraines, the effects of a migraine attack for me consists of nausea, sickness, blurred vision, pins and needles to my hands and the obvious my head felt that it was going to explode!!!
As I got older the attacks became more frequent and severe a visit to the doctor was in order. I was advised to keep a diary for a number of months thus determining what was causing the attacks (chocolate – what a bummer, coffee and stress). After doing this it was easy to avoid the chocs and coffee but the STRESS not as easy!!!
Having a migraine became a regular occurrence, which if anyone reading this has suffered from a migraine which is 100 times worse that a regular headache will know that having a migraine is debilitating, I personally am unable to function with one- moving causes increased sickness and pain.
It was for this reason that I started to take the antimigraine analgesics.
This medication is available either on prescription or over the counter at most chemists.
Migraleve provides two types of tablets pink and yellow, which are to be used in accordance with these instructions;
They then suggest that you should then take two yellow tablet (which consists of 500mg paracetamol and 8mg codeine phosphate) every four hours if necessary.
It states on the box that you should not take more than 2 pink tablets and 6 yellow tablets in 24 hours.I have heard many people say that this medication has worked for them but it is expensive!!!
The pink tablets fair enough coz it contains an anti emetic (anti sickness) drug combined with the painkiller!! But the yellow tablets are just co-codamol 8/500, which you can pick up from most supermarkets for 60p
I personal when trying this medication it did nothing at all for my migraines!!!! I took these as prescribed, even using the tip of taking the pink when I though a migraine was imminent. But still nothing still had the pain, dodgy vision, pins and needles and the sickness.From personal use of these I would never take them again and friends who also suffer from severe migraines also have said that they do nothing for them!!! However people had have bad headaches ‘slight migraines’ this medication seems to work for them.
Following the use of all medications my GP could think of inc MigraMax, Paramax, Ergotamine Tartrate, Isometheptene Mucate, Naratriptan, Clonidine Hydrochloride I give up and now well if I have a migraine I need the prescription drugs of Metoclopramide (anti-emetic) and the pain killer of co-codamol which although does not get rid of the migraine it reduces the symptoms.
***If you do suffer from migraines and take over the counter meds, and they are recurrent you should really consult your Doc so that he/she can make sure the migraines are not caused by anything medical as appose to environmental factors****
