From the US to Australia, we get all kinds of questions about Migraine Stop. You're not alone! Check out the questions below if you're looking for more information. My dad's friend Mark made these awesome videos for us. (Yes, he's Australian -- the story of Migraine Stop really was discovered on our family vacation... lol)
Question: Is Migraine Stop safe for young children?
Answer: Migraine Stop contains minerals and vitamins that are already found in our bodies. The 7 ingredients in Migraine Stop are Magnesium, Zinc, Vitamin B3, B6 & B9 (as Folinic Acid), Passionflower, and Cramp Bark. These ingredients are generally safe for children 10 years of age or older. One word of caution for kids is that our product contains Zinc. There are daily-recommended limits of Zinc for both adults and children. Our adult product dose rate is 2 - 3 capsules per day, but for children it's 1 - 2 capsules per day.*
Question: If I am sensitive to swallowing capsules, can I take them another way?
Answer: Yes, you can empty the contents of the capsules into a flavored beverage or mix it in with apple sauce. You will still achieve the same results as you would taking the capsules.*
Question: Can I take Migraine Stop with my other medications?
Answer: There are no known counter-indications with Migraine Stop and any other medication you might be on. Given that Migraine Stop is a blend of vitamins and minerals that are present in the human body, there is little risk in supplementing them. They will not interact adversely with any normal prescription medications for migraine, or other drugs.*
Magnesium can reduce the effectiveness of some antibiotics if taken around the same time. If you are taking antibiotics and a magnesium supplement then you should have a 2 hour gap between them.*
Question: Can I stop taking my other migraine medication now that I am taking Migraine Stop?
Answer: You should always consult your doctor before discontinuing a medication. In most cases you should keep taking your regular medications until your body adjusts to the benefits of Migraine Stop. This can take anywhere from 3 to 5 weeks. Once you notice a lessening of the migraine frequency, you can consult your doctor. Keep in mind, many prescribed medications require a slow phase off period.*
Question: Are there any side effects from taking Migraine Stop?
Answer: More than 300mg of magnesium a day can cause some mild diarrhea. The full dose (3 caps) of Migraine Stop contains exactly 300mg of elemental magnesium, so you shouldn’t have any problems.*
Question: What can I do if I am concerned about the potential of diarrhea?
Answer: Start gradually by taking 1 capsule per day in week 1, 2 capsules per day in week 2, then at week 3, increase to the full 3 capsule per day dose rate.*
Question: When is the best time of the day to take Migraine Stop ?
Answer: There is no best time in regards to function, but try to take them with food, so make it a habit to take either with breakfast or with dinner at night.*
Question: Can I take Migraine Stop while pregnant or breastfeeding?
Answer: Do not take Migraine Stop before consulting with your health care professional. Our medical advisers who helped us design and formulate the product indicate that Migraine Stop is safe for women trying to conceive, or during pregnancy and breastfeeding. The medical fraternity is somewhat split on the issue of taking supplements during pregnancy and it often comes down to the personal opinion of an individual doctor. Medically speaking, they are safe to take, but our recommendation is that you discuss it with your GP as this is often a very personal decision, and both patient and doctor should be in alignment on the thinking behind it. *
The only ingredients in the product are Magnesium, Zinc, Vitamins B3 & B6, Vitamin B9 (as Folinic Acid), Cramp Bark and Passionflower. A combination of vitamins, mineral and plant extracts, so there is nothing in there that can cause harm, but it’s always best to get a second opinion. Please refer your doctor to our website for the ingredient list.*
Question: If my body is not low in nutrients to begin with, can taking these 2-3 capsules a day increase the levels over time? Would this result in exceeding the recommended medical levels?
Answer: It is impossible to overdose on Magnesium or Vitamin B6, as any excess that your body doesn’t need is excreted. The moment you stop taking the capsules your magnesium levels will lower again.*
Question: What about Vitamin B6 toxicity? Is that real?
Answer: You have to take at least 500mg of B6 every day for an extended period of time for B6 toxicity to occur, and this is 6 times the level in Migraine Stop. You would need to take 18 – 19 capsules a day of Migraine Stop to be at risk of B6 toxicity and you would need to do that every day for at least a month.*
On the normal maximum dose rate of 3 capsules per day of Migraine Stop, there is no risk of B6 toxicity, as B6 does not "build up’" or remain in the body. As soon as you stop taking it, the B6 flushes out.*
You should not take multiple supplements that contain the same things. Taking another B6 supplement in addition to Migraine Stop would be inadvisable.*
Question: Is there any other elements of Migraine Stop that I should consider?
Answer: Zinc is potentially a problem if you were taking zinc from multiple sources, but our dose is still well under the threshold. Zinc is a mineral and doesn’t "build up" in the body like an element, such as mercury or similar toxins.*
Question: When I take the Migraine Stop and can’t seem to sleep. Is this normal?
Answer: Despite the fact that Magnesium is normally advocated to improve sleep, there is some anecdotal evidence to suggest that around 1% of the population will have the opposite result and endure poor sleep. The causes of this are still under debate, but there are a couple of solutions you can try to mitigate the outcome.*
First off, start on a low dose and work your way up, so take 1 capsule a day for a week or so (assuming it doesn’t adversely affect you even at this rate). You should also ensure you drink plenty of water throughout the day and when you take the magnesium. Magnesium can "soak up" water as it metabolizes.*
Also, vary the time of day you take the Migraine Stop, experimenting with early morning versus late afternoon. This sleep phenomenon seems to vary with individuals, but with experimentation it can be controlled.*
Question: I have tried Migraine Stop for a full month and it doesn’t seem to have made a huge difference for me. What can I do?
Answer: Generally speaking, Migraine Stop will only help people suffering from common migraine causes. If you have a rare or complex case, it may not help you. That is why we offer a full 100% refund to anyone that doesn't love it. If you are not satisfied, just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.*
