Migraine Devices

Hey! I’m wondering if anyone has had any experience on getting a migraine device such as Cefaly or migraine glasses like Avulux but on a low income?

I feel like I really want to try something that isn’t just tablets but low income makes it so difficult to buy devices that are £300+

Any advice would be appreciated x


  1. Great question! I hear you on the cost of these items, it can be daunting. I believe Cefaly has a money back guarantee if you don't like it or don't find it beneficial. I also noticed they have a payment plan if that helps any.
    As far as the glasses go, I'm not sure about the glasses. I think these companies have coupon codes from time to time.
    I understand how difficult it is to afford such things as I'm on SSDI and have a very limited income. I saved up and put money aside when I could to afford Cefaly. It took a while!
    I hope that helps, will you let me know how you make out? Hoping today is a good day, Nancy Harris Bonk, Patient Advocate/Moderator

    1. Thanks for the information on the free trial for Cefaly. I'm sure it will benefit people in the community if they want to try the device. I'm sorry it didn't work out for you. My husband uses Nerivio and he says it feels a little weird but helps some so he still uses it. Those neurostimulators are really a new experience for many of us, but worth trying especially if you are struggling to find some relief. Warmly, Cheryl migraine.com team


    2. I hear you! It did take me a while to get used to the feeling. Have you tried any of the other devices?

  2. Hi Nancy,


    Thanks so much for your reply. I might have to just save a little a month until I can get it! Although I have just emailed them asking if they do a payment plan as nothing is mentioned on their website. Fingers crossed.


    I’ll let you know how it works out!


    Thank you,
    Dani x

    1. Hi Dani,
      Thank you for getting back to me. I was on the US portion of the site. Maybe a payment plan isn't available where you live?

    2. That could be it! I’m in the UK and it only comes up as pay in full. I’ll see what they say anyway. 🤞🏼

  3. Hi - 1./ You can try for 90 days and return if you find it doesn't work or you do not like it; 90-DAY MONEY BACK Guarantee -or- it looks like they accept PayPal credit cards (up to 12 months ??) in Europe. 2./ Amazon has $50 off Cefaly as a deal - Purchase this way if you have an Amazon credit card - Visit the Cefaly Store. - Hope this helps - Rebecca (Migraine.com community advocate)

    1. it's very hard to afford things on low income, I get it. It's also hard to know which thing to try too. Theraspecs has an ebay outlet store, I don't know how it works as far as the UK, but I have gotten 50% just by buying from there. Looking for coupon codes around the holidays too. Cefaly has updated their return policy to 90 days recently as well. Since I'm in the US, I know some things for here, but not how they would work in the UK. Mostly wanted to say I get it and I hope you are able to find something that helps you. I have found being patient can pay off, watching for those sales and coupon codes.

      1. thanks so much for your reply! I'm definitely going to go through eBay for the theraspecs I had no idea!


        It's shame it's all so expensive but any little thing to find relief and fingers crossed it works.
