Update #1: my wife now complains of a "grassy" taste from belching after taking butterbur. I apologize if you did not want to know that!
Update #2: Well over two months later, my wife is seeing gradual and subtle signs of improvement. The doctor is weaning her off of stronger pharmaceuticals to reduce interactions. There are a lot of moving parts at work here, but the butterbur appears to take the "edge" off enough that she can survive her "days off".
HOWEVER, the German equivalent of the FDA has now banned it's use there because the company that manufactures the patented Petadolex product, which was known for safety and purity, changed their manufacturing process to one that was not felt to be safe by the German authorities.
Natural Butterbur has compounds that can cause liver damage and may cause cancer. The old Petadolex manufacturing process, which was regulated by the German government, was felt to remove these compounds and produce a safe product. That is no longer the case.
Petadolex products now in circulation here in the US DOES NOT meet the stringent safety guidelines as advertised and medical professionals from both the standard and alternative health industries are advising against using the product.
HOWEVER, the producing company with the patent, Weber & Weber, has stated in letters sent to inquiring customers that they are now using a safer method of extracting the toxic compounds (CO2 gas process instead of a chemical solvent process) and that the German government has not studied this and that is the reason why the Petadolex product has been banned there.
The problem is that there is now NO real third-party oversight or regulation of this product AS CLAIMED in advertisements and you are taking the same risk with this product that you would take with most other supplements, none of which are regulated in the US.
Too bad for consumers and migraine sufferers everywhere!
The butterbur cut my migraines by 1/2, at least for the first few years and the only side effect that I noticed was belching and that got better as time went on.
This particular brand was specifically recommended because it uses an extraction method that guarantees that it is free from harmful levels of potentially dangerous compounds known as pyrrolizidine alkaloids (PAs), which can cause liver damage. Be sure to check out any brand that you use and make sure the PA's are removed.
Be sure to check with your doctor before using this for dosage, etc. but it really did help me.
