What is a Migraine?
Migraines are classified as “benign headaches” because they are not caused by an underlying medical condition such as a tumor, aneurysm or a similar medical disorder. But, migraine is far from “benign” in terms of its impact on the individual and those around them.
The pain of a migraine headache is often described as an intense pulsing, throbbing and sometimes disabling pain, which may be limited to one side of the head. It may be accompanied by sensitivity to light and sound, nausea and vomiting.
There are two major types of migraine headache: classic and common. Classic migraines are often signaled by “aura,” a visual sensory illusion, such as jagged bands of light obscuring vision, or shimmering lights around the edges of objects, before the actual pain begins. Only about 20 percent of sufferers experience aura. Common migraines occur without aura.
Migraine headaches may result from dietary, environmental and lifestyle triggers. Most migraines are not caused by a single identifiable source, and a person's response to a trigger varies from occurrence to occurrence.

What will LipiGesic™-M do for me?
LipiGesic-M is a non-prescription sublingual (under-the-tongue) formulation of natural ingredients used in the early stages of onset to relieve the pain and reduce the associated symptoms of migraine – nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to light and sound.
In a double-blind placebo controlled study, 64% of headaches resolved with no pain or only mild pain, within 2 hours after LipiGesic-M was taken. (In most cases, relief was experienced prior to the 2-hour- study benchmark.)
LipiGesic-M is highly effective for the treatment of migraine pain and may cost up to 75% less than the leading prescription migraine medications. Available over-the-counter, LipiGesic-M is the best, first-line defense in the treatment of migraine. Each dose of LipiGesic-M is pre-measured; it is easy to use and easy to transport.
Who should NOT take LipiGesic-M?
LipiGesic-M is extremely safe. It can be used by virtually all migraine sufferers.

If a significant allergic reaction occurs, stop using the product and seek immediate medical help.

- It's all in the delivery.
LipiGesic™-M is a patent - pending medication designed to provide fast and effective relief from the pain and associated symptoms of migraine. Unlike typical pills and capsules, LipiGesic-M starts to work almost immediately
Active ingredients are often destroyed when first passing through the stomach or liver – before they have a chance to reach their intended target. Sublingual (under the tongue) administration prevents this “first pass” destruction by delivering the product directly to the bloodstream through the rich network of blood vessels under the tongue. LipiGesic-M's full- strength active ingredients reach the bloodstream faster and more effectively.
The unit dose system is a patent-pending delivery system developed by PuraMed BioScience, and includes the dispenser as well as specific formula enhancements used to improve the sublingual absorption of LipiGesic-M. The unit dose system is an important part of PuraMed's effort to create products that work faster, are more effective and offer better safety profiles than similar products administered by traditional means.
