Migraine drug removed from use by the European Medicines Agency. Make sure you are not on it even in the US!

New info that just came to me through another migraine group on Facebook that I participate in.

The European Medicines Agency now restricts a medicine often used to treat migraines (medicines in the ergot family drug) because it causes fibrosis. If you are on a drug in this family, make sure you make an appointment with your doctor and have them remove this drug from the list. This drug constricts blood vessels in your brain to increase blood pressure. I talk a ton in the upcoming book about how to increase your blood pressure naturally; no medicine is needed. In fact in the book I even provide you with drawings for some and on my website with more. For now, observe the article   and if you want to find out if your drug falls into this category, visit the US drug website to find related drugs–they are on the right side of the page. Note the red crossing of “discontinued” on the drug at the US site. This particular drug thus is no longer FDA approved so if you are on it, please immediately report the violation to the FDA and also talk to your doctor showing all the articles I am linking you to. Find more information on this drug on Wikipedia.

About Angela A Stanton, Ph.D.

Angela A Stanton, PhD, is a Neuroeconomist focusing on chronic pain, electrolyte homeostasis, and genetics. She lives in Southern California. Her current research is focused on migraine cause, prevention and treatment without the use of medicines. As a forever migraineur from childhood, her discovery was helped by experimenting on herself. She found the cause of migraine to be at the ionic level, associated with disruption of the electrolyte homeostasis, resulting from genetic variations of all voltage gated channels that modulate electrolytes and voltage in the brain, insulin and glucose transporters, and several other related variants, such as the MTHFR variants of the B vitamin methylation process and many others. Migraineurs are glucose sensitive and should avoid eating carbs as much as possible. As a result of the success of the first edition of her book and new research and findings after treating over 4000 migraineurs world wide, all ages and both genders, she is now finishing the 2nd edition. The 2nd edition is the “holy grail” of migraines, incorporating all there is to know and also hypotheses. It includes an academic research section with suggestions for further research. The book is full of citations to authenticate the statements she makes to be followed up by those interested and to spark further research interest. It is a "Complete Guide". Due out in the summer of 2017. Dr. Stanton received her BSc at UCLA in Mathematics, MBA at UCR, MS in Management Science and Engineering at Stanford University, PhD in NeuroEconomics at Claremont Graduate University, and fMRI certification at Harvard University Medical School at the Martinos Center for Neuroimaging for experimenting with neurotransmitters on human volunteers. For relaxation Dr. Stanton paints and photographs. Follow her on Twitter at: @MigraineBook
