      Normally I am in excellent health. Last fall through winter I had congestion of the lungs. I tried a popular homeopathic remedy found in the pharmacy section of stores that required me to take every three hours and up to 48 hours after symptoms go away. This was most difficult to do. Whenever I missed the schedule through the nights, my health would reverse and I'd have to start all over again. Recently I was reading 'Herbs the Magic Healers' by Paul Twitchell. He mentioned that tea made from the root of Butterbur is used in clearing the chest and lungs of phlegm and that it is also used for treating coughs and tightness of the throat and chest, all of which I was suffering from. Although what I purchased from Vitamin Shoppe were pills, not tea, taking a small monetary risk, I ordered this product. Taken as directed, everything cleared up within a week.

      It was recommended that I use butterbur for migraines. I am 53 and have had migraines since I was 17. The butterbur was very effective in the prevention of migraines however I wondered why my skin was itching at night and why I was sneezing during the day. The itching became so intense that I could not sleep! I checked online and found that butterbur is related to ragweed. Please note - I have had allergy testing and did not show any allergy to ragweed - nonetheless I was having a pretty significant reaction to the butterbur! Within a few days of discontinuing the use of butterbur the itching and sneezing completely stopped. Please be careful with this product and if these symptoms occurr be aware that you are having an allergic reaction! Act accordingly!

      Very helpful. Extremely allergic to ragweed. Already dealing with up to 10+ migraines per month. Don't need another issue. Thanks

      For Migraines

      By LizzyK

      from Miami, FL

      Verified Buyer

      Pros

        Cons

          Best Uses

            I started taking this for migraines. I have been taking two/day for about two weeks now. Not sure if it is working yet, as I've heard it takes 5 weeks or so to kick in. However, I have already noticed a slight decrease in the frequency of migraines, so I am hopeful that it is working.

              Migraines are much less severe after a few weeks of taking 1 capsule after breakfast and l capsule after dinner. I would recommend it.

              It won't make them go away but they will be less severe and less frequent. I'm so happy I found this, I was very skeptical and it's no cure all, but I appreciate being able to take the imitrex out of my rotation since that takes me out of commission all day.

              Shoulder & Neck Pain? Use this!

              By Cindy

              from Sacramento

              I have almost constant shoulder and neck pain which can travel up the side of my head and end up as true migraine. Then I knock myself out with Imitrex. What a mess. I tried this about 1-1/2 mos ago, 2 tabs @ breakfast, one @ dinner, religiously. It is actually starting to WORK!!! For 3 days straight now, I wake up in NO PAIN. Get it, and stick with it. No more sleeping sitting up. Not expecting perfection, but if I can get to 75%???? Wow!!!!

              buttterbur

              By mickie

              from rockport TX

              The expiration date on the butterbur appears to be 1-16-2007! That is unacceptable. I didn't notice it at first. Now I can't determine if the product is helping me or not. I would appreciate a replacement, preferably by Weber and Weber (where there this scientific evidence of it's effectiveness in preventing migraine).

                    Best Uses

                      Excellent product. I have been treated for migraines for 40 years with various medications. After using this product for 4-5 months my migraines decreased in severity. The need for most meds is no longer necessary. However once in awhile if I smell a strong fragrance or tar a migraine will start. But I am still able to carry on with projects after taking aspirin. Four years ago I would have been in bed with ice packs for a few days.

                      from Undisclosed

                      I had seen numerous articles recommending butterbur for migraine sufferers, so I decided to give it a try. After two months, the butterbur seems to be working. I am definitely experiencing fewer migraines, even though I am being exposed to many migraine triggers. I hope that these positive results last!

                          shantel w asked: So how what extracting process do u use & does your product contain high levels of pyrrolizidine??? The roots of the perennial shrub generally contain high levels of pyrrolizidine alkaloids, which can damage the liver, so herbalists recommend looking for butterbur products that specify no pyrrolizidines, or ones that use a CO2 extracting process, which limits the amount of pyrrolizidine alkaloids Apr 4, 2013

                          Karla U: No. No stomach upset at all. I started with 50 mg and my migraines were significantly less pronounced ... when the first two bottles were gone, I increased to 75 mg and I haven't had one since. That's been about 5 months ago! I've suffered 36 hour migraines for 26 years! This is such a relief!!! Jan 6, 2014
