Viaprene Questions?

Find answers to common questions about Viaprene.

I have tried many different therapies to cope with my headaches, but nothing seems to work. What can I do?

There are literally 100s of medications and supplements that can help with headaches. If one medication or supplement does not work for you, keep trying other solutions. Clinical research has shown that effective preventative regimens can be found in at least 95% of people who suffer from migraines and other forms of headaches. [top]


What are the risk factors and triggers of migraine headaches?

While no conclusive research is evident, some suggest migraines may run in the family and have a hereditary component. Triggers of migraine headaches may include:

  • Missing meals
  • Drinking alcohol and red wine
  • Eating foods containing MSG, nitrates (such as those found in preserved meat), and aged cheeses
  • Excessive caffeine consumption
  • Menstruation or oral contraceptive use
  • Insomnia or sleep disorders
  • Stress

What medications and traditional treatments are normally used to for migraines?

Migraine drugs fall generally into two categories. Those for acute migraine headaches are considered abortive treatments because they interrupt an attack or episode of migraine headache and are given once the symptoms of a migraine have appeared. The second category is preventive medications, which are taken regularly to keep headaches from occurring.

Abortive Treatments:

  • OTC medications: These include aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen or acetaminophen. Some of these products are combined with aspirin and caffeine. 
  • Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) and other analgesics including narcotics and non-narcotics. 
  • Serotonin agonists: (sumatriptan [Imitrex], zolmitriptan [Zomig], naratriptan [Amerge], rizatriptan [Maxalt]), almotriptan [Axert], eletriptan [Relpex] and frovatriptan [Frova]). Treximet is a combination pill containing both sumatriptan and naproxen. The '"triptan" medications cause vasoconstriction and are therefore contraindicated in people who have uncontrolled high blood pressure, angina pectoris (chest pain due to clogged arteries), heart attack, stroke or basilar migraine.
  • Vasoconstrictors: (ergotamine [Migranal], Cafergot [ergotamine/caffeine]): Useful in the painful dilation stage of a migraine.


Preventive medications:

The daily preventive medications prescribed for migraine headache include:

  • Tricyclic anti-depressants (such as amitriptyline)
  • Beta-blockers (propranolol or timolol) 
  • Calcium channel blockers (verapamil) 
  • Anti-convulsants (Depakote, also known as divalproex sodium; Topamax, or topiramate; Neurontin, or gabapentin)
  • Alternative treatments (vitamin B2, magnesium)
  • Vasodilators (methysergide maleate, or Sansert)
  • Hormone therapy (for women with menstrual migraine)
