CEFALY DUAL - No Prescription Needed!!

These are unprecedented times. We are used to being in our homes for days at a time and social distancing on our own, but not being able to go places because of a pandemic is something new to all of us. How do we manage our acute migraine symptoms when they get so bad we typically seek emergency care? Real fears are surrounding the possibility of contracting the coronavirus and many of us living with migraine have comorbid conditions that are part of the vulnerable population.

If you have ever considered using a neuromodulation device for the prevention, acute treatment, or both I wanted to share some encouraging information with you. Keeping regular in-office appointments during this pandemic has been especially difficult for patients living with migraine. Many have had their appointments postponed, rescheduled, or canceled altogether including follow-up visits and non-emergent procedures such as Botox injections and nerve blocks.

The ability to get refills on prescription medication or access to abortive or rescue medications has been adversely affected due to COVID. This, in turn, can lead to more visits to the emergency department for immediate care. However, emergency rooms and hospitals are not the safest (or most desirable) places to be if you want to avoid contracting the coronavirus.

Thankfully, there has been an increase in access to telemedicine in the United States to address these needs. How does telemedicine help the migraine patient during this pandemic? According to the Headache and Migraine Policy Forum, virtual appointments encourage ongoing care which:

Now Over-the-Counter: FDA Clears CEFALY® DUAL Migraine Treatment for Use Without a Prescription

The first external Trigeminal nerve stimulator for the treatment of migraine headaches is now also the first available without a prescription

How Does CEFALY® Work?
The CEFALY® device provides neurostimulation of the trigeminal nerve. The trigeminal nerves are the largest of the twelve pairs of cranial nerves. Cranial nerves begin in the brain and can transmit sensory or motor information or both. The trigeminal nerve, or cranial nerve V, has both motor and sensory functions. It runs down each side of your head and allows you to feel sensations in your face.
There are three branches of the trigeminal nerve - ophthalmic, maxillary, and mandibular.

  • Ophthalmic branch provides sensation and feeling to the forehead, upper eyelid, eye, scalp, and bridge of the nose.
  • The maxillary branch transmits sensory information from the upper lip, cheeks, nostrils, lower eyelid, and upper jaw.
  • The mandibular branch has both motor and sensory functions in the jaw, outer ear, chin, lower lip, and lower jaw.

When Using CEFALY®
CEFALY® ACUTE setting is intended for treatment during a migraine attack or at the onset of a migraine. This is a 60-minute program designed to treat migraine attacks when they begin, to stop or relieve your migraine pain.

CEFALY® PREVENT setting is meant for daily preventative treatment. This is a 20-minute program designed for the preventative treatment of migraines.

CEFALY® has graciously reached out to me wanting to help anyone who would like to purchase a device to help with the prevention or acute management of their migraine. CEFALY® can help you stay home, stay safe, and stay on top of your treatments during a time when we need to take every precaution regarding our health. With CEFALY®,

  1. There is no risk of contracting the coronavirus in the waiting room, during a treatment, or potentially during your round-trip commute to see a doctor as CEFALY® is administered on-demand by you at home.
  2. In clinical trials, people who used CEFALY® every day saw a decrease in migraine days and their need for migraine medication. In theory, this also means less Medication Adaptation Headaches and fewer trips to the pharmacy for refills on migraine medication.
