I’ve been suffering with Complex Chronic Migraines for 6 years and I also have Multiple Sclerosis. I’ve tried over 20 prophylactic medications which seemed to work for a bit and then stop working. I also couldn’t tolerate the side effects which were severe. I first heard of the Cefaly on 60 minutes from a friend and decided ide give it a try. It took about 4 weeks of daily use to see a reduction in the migraine attack severity. I would say for me it didn’t reduce the number of attacks (they’re still daily), but they reduced the severity of the attacks by about 30-40%. I’ve noticed I don’t have to really take triptans much anymore and some days can get by on just taking panodol. Even though the Cefaly hasn’t gotten rid of my migraines completely, I find I have gotten my life back. When I feel a migraine attack coming on I put it on the first setting and I find I often don’t need to take drugs. Also, I was able to get the Cefaly through NDIS which has been great. Migraines can ruin your life. I know the machine is not cheap but in my opinion it’s effectivity far surpasses the cost.
