Prevagen and headaches,
This review is from: Prevagen Apoaequorin, 30-Count Bottle (Health and Beauty)
I originally purchased prevagen for memory issues. I have used it for about 40 days or so and my memory might have improved marginally. What I have noticed is that the frequency of my migraine headaches and intensity has dropped by about 50%.
I also happen to feel more at easy, more relaxed.
Is it due to Prevagen? Not sure, but it certainly coincides with the time frame I have been taking it.

You can help migraine headaches much more cheaply with magnesium asporotate

That's interesting... calcium channel blockers (a class of PHARMACEUTICAL and FDA approved medication) are known to be effective for migraines. I wonder if the "prevagen" claim that it binds calcium might be at play. But you might be better served seeing your doctor and getting the actual pharmaceutical drug... calcium channel blockers are cheap and blood pressure needs to be monitored while you take them. Plus you know exactly what's in them. Don't be deceived... "all natural" doesn't mean it's safe or effective.
PS I'm a neurologist, and as you can tell I don't believe the memory claims made be "Prevagen" are justified. BTW I found these posts because I was searching for the ingredients of "Prevagen" - since one of my patients seems to be having unusual side effects that I worry might relate to his use of this agent.

FDA approved medicines are the 4th leading cause of death in the US. I suspect the toll is even greater than is realized since it could be a side effect that brings on demise.
I don't know what Prevagen does for brains and it IS expensive.
MD's really don't have a solution so it may be worth a test and DO watch your blood pressure when taking it.

Yes, what kind of side effects?
I have been taking it for about 6 weeks. I don't know if the symptoms I am having are a side effect or not.
I wake with a sli headache and a full or pressure feeling in my skull. Also having body aches. BUT I am 73 so?????
Anyone else have these symptoms? I am dropping to every other day then every 2 days until I am off.

So has the pressure stopped/slowed up and are you continuing to use prevagen. If so, why?

I stopped taking it and it stopped. Guess I am allergic.
I do forget things. Hope it's just my age and not the dreaded Altzheimers.
Hubbie takes it and says he is fine.

I have been prescribed 4 different medications, which have been removed from the market for KILLING people. I don't have much faith in the pharmaceutical industry any more. Here is a question for you. Lipitor has been on the market for 20 years now... how much has the rate of heart disease gone down? From what I understand... not at all. Speaking of a scam....

Yes the pressure has stopped. I still occasionally get a morning headache. might be the angle of my neck/head when I sleep. But the pressure is definitely gone.
Cannot say what caused the full/ pressure in my head.
