Headache Relief Remedies – Causes of Headache Types

Migralex is different from most other headache medications.

First of all, it has no caffeine. Caffeine is an active ingredient in a variety of over-the-counter and prescription headache drugs. Caffeine does enhance the pain-relieving properties of other medications. However, caffeine is also responsible for causing or worsening headaches in millions of people. Almost everyone who drinks more than one or two cups of coffee a day knows that skipping their usual cup of strong morning coffee can result in a severe headache. The existence of caffeine withdrawal headaches is also well documented in scientific studies. Caffeine also causes or worsens anxiety, depression, insomnia, acid reflux, palpitations, and other problems.

Research shows you should choose Migralex because it:

  • Caffeine-Free & Safer on Stomach
  • Delivers Fast Acting Headache Relief
  • Formula is Doctor Developed and Patented

Another distinguishing feature of Migralex is that it is gentler on the stomach. Magnesium oxide, which is an ingredient in Migralex, is an alkaline substance that counteracts the acidity of aspirin, making Migralex a safer product. Some other pain medications are safety-coated to achieve the same result. However, coating delays the release of active ingredients and causes a delay in getting relief. This brings us to the next outstanding feature of Migralex.

Migralex works fast. Alexander Mauskop, MD has learned from his patients that if a medicine takes too long to work it may not work at all or it may take 2 or 3 doses for it to eventually provide relief. To produce Migralex a company which specializes in drug formulations was asked to develop a fast-acting product. After almost a year of work Migralex was born.

And lastly, Migralex is a very versatile drug that works for different types of headaches and pain. It can help tension, sinus, stress, menstrual, hangover, and other headaches. Many people have difficulty differentiating these types, especially sinus from tension headaches. Fortunately, Migralex can help both of these headache types.

Migralex is a unique headache medicine, combining the most effective over-the-counter headache medication with magnesium. It works fast and magnesium makes it safer. I take it myself and recommend it to my patients.

How did Dr. Mauskop Discover Migralex?

The story of Migralex began in 1992 when Alexander Mauskop, MD and his colleagues at the State University of New York embarked on a research project trying to understand some of the causes of headaches. This project initially involved 500 patients seen by Dr. Mauskop at the New York Headache Center, a headache clinic he founded in 1987. This research yielded dozens of scientific articles, three books, presentations at major scientific conferences, and lectures at Harvard, Dartmouth, Columbia, NYU, the Mayo and Cleveland Clinics, and other universities. Dr. Mauskop’s research also led to two patents for a combination headache product. Seeing excellent results in many of his patients, Dr. Mauskop decided to develop these patents into an over-the-counter headache medicine, Migralex.

I have been getting bad headaches for over 30 years and I was shocked this worked. It eased the pain in about 40 minutes. Thank you!
