Terrific results for me. I highly recommend Petadolex which has been tested in Germany. Does not contain any contaminants like many other herbal remedies have in them. My 24/7 migraines, often severe, have not been severe since I had taken Petadolex for about a month. I have taken it a total of 2 months now. To have had this kind of improvement for this long is the first time in 3 years of s ... Show Full Comment

Butterbur has saved the quality of my life. My migraines (which seemed to be accompanied with sinus swelling and pain) did not respond to traditional meds or the meds had such severe side effects I couldn't take them.

Was having pretty frequent migraines. Prescription meds were just making me so drowsy. Decided to try Butterbur and I am glad I did! Works great. Rarely get a migraine and when I do they are mild. Just wish it wasn't so expensive. Does make my eyes a little dry, but a small price to pay.

Comment:
I have had daily headaches for years, with migraines occurring frequently, especially after consuming a "trigger" like MSG, tannins in tea, or nitrates in meat. After being on 2 pills of butterbur a day, I very rarely have a bad headache. Even after consuming a trigger, I may get a twinge, but nothing horrible. My constant background headache is GONE. Love it!
