Ausanil Nasal Spray

  • By Tim Banish

    I checked out this new medication that has just become available, Ausanil Nasal Spray. The price is good, less than a doctors visit. Reviews look good, but anyone can have people “say” their product is good for the right amount of $$.
    Has anyone here used it yet? If anyone has, what kind of results did you have? If not, check out the product at Ausanil.com
    They state relief from migraines in minutes, no side effects, no prescription needed. About 50 sprays for under $30.
    It looks promising.

    “When administered, a local stinging sensation in the nasal cavity indicates the sensory nerve has been stimulated, which leads to a reduction in the release of pain molecules in the brain”

    Active Ingredients:
    Capsicum Annuum 3X
    Zingbiger Officianale 3X

    What concerns me is Capsicum is the active ingredient in pepper spray. The website says the capsicum is an Analgesic and the Zingbiger is ginger which can help with Nausea. I’m going to wait a bit and let someone else spray hot pepper up their nose before I do..LOL

    Let us know how it works if you try it. :p

    I’ve tried it twice. It definitely burns, though I’d be happy to trade 30 minutes of stinging in my nose for no migraine. It didn’t work for me.

    If you do try it, only spray it in the nostril on the side of the migraine. The first time, I did both nostrils (because the migraine was on both sides) and the spray was very painful. It was less painful the second time, when I only sprayed it in one nostril.

    Hi! I’m 41 years old, and when I look back I believe my migraines started in high school. They have gotten increasingly worse in the lady ten years. This passed year I had a hysterectomy in part due to the fact that my migraines were beloved to be hormonal. It did help with the severity, although I seem to still get them for a number of reasons. I tried Ausanil, and while there is a good 15 minutes of discomfort and stinging, it is the only thing so far that has actually worked to take away my headache pain, and not put me to sleep for the rest of the day! I have been on many prescriptions and many different treatment plans. If you have been desperate like me, it is deffinatly worth a try, and the good outweighs the bad.

    I have been suffering from a rollercoaster of migraine pain each day for over a week. I’ve had migraines roughly every other day for half a year. I’ve had migraines for 10 years. My migraines typically flatten me in bed for the day, and transform my brain into applesauce for a day or two.

    I’ve tried over-the-counter remedies and prescriptions drugs to abort and prevent migraines. I’ve been logging details of each attack in increasing detail, but failing to identify any triggers.

    I finally found a way into a local headache clinic last month, and the neurologist recommended Ausanil with huge enthusiasm. She didn’t know that it was no longer being made. I found a bottle on amazon.com anyway, and tried it.

    It took practice to use it correctly. The website was loaded with videos and diagrams for how to insert the nozzle, and which way to point it, and how to breathe afterward, and how to minimize burning. Today, I got the best JOLT from it which lasted a frightening minute or two, and it blasted my migraine out of the universe! The relief was worth the sting. I expect to continue to become increasingly better at aiming and spraying and breathing.

    I am looking for more bottles of this. Please post here if you find any for sale.

    According to the doctor who developed this product, it is unique. His patent application is interesting to read.
