Nerivio or other migraine device

I want to know if anyone has tried Nerivio or any of the other migraine devices and how their experience has been. I'm considering trying Nerivio, but I am unsure whether any of the other alternatives might be better or not. Any help is appreciated. I would love to have a drug-free option that really works

  1. Hello, mariadelsol, thank you for reaching out! We have several articles on the site about Nerivio, a few written from different contributors' perspectives that I thought might be of interest while you wait for others to stop by and share with you:

    1. Hi mariadelsol,

      Thank you for reaching out to us! Yes, I've been using this device with some success, let me explain.

      My migraine treatment plan includes Botox every 12 weeks, magnesium, vitamin D, Cefaly (another device) every evening at bedtime, as it can make one sleepy, and I added Nerivio in April.

      I've used this device, Nerivio 6 times in April, twice in May, and not at all yet this month, June. It's been helpful in stopping an attack, and about half the time keeps them away for a few days. I find that my treatment plan works best when I have a combination of medications, supplements and device.

      I hope this helps and I'm happy to answer any questions!

      1. Thanks Nancy, very helpful reply. If you had to chose one device to try first would it be Nerivio or Cefaly?

    2. Hi @mariadelsol,

      I would probably do it the same way, Cefaly first then Nerivio. The thing about Cefaly is it can be used for migraine prevention and to stop a migraine attack.
      Nerivio is used to abort a migraine attack, much different than a preventative.

      I believe both companies are having specials during June, which is National Migraine and Headache Awareness Month.

      Let me know what you pick!
      Nancy
