A migraine headache can be one of the most debilitating conditions to experience. It can literally incapacitate you for hours, if not days, at a time. But for many people, lying in a dark room with your eyes closed is not an option. What is needed is a remedy that will relieve the pain and enable you to get on with your life.
This is our review of Hyland’s Migraine Headache Relief, a natural, homeopathic treatment that is said to do just that. It has been formulated to relieve the symptoms of migraine pain quickly, without making you feel drowsy. However, as Hyland’s themselves point out, it is not a cure for migraine headaches – just a way to provide temporary relief from the most common migraine symptoms: pain, sensitivity to light and nausea.

For adults and children over 12 years of age, the recommended dosage is 1 or 2 tablets every four hours, or as needed. You simply allow the tablets to dissolve on your tongue. While you can take the tablets less frequently, you should never exceed the recommended dosage.

Hyland’s Migraine Headache Relief Review – Conclusion
Hyland’s Migraine Headache Relief is a gentle and natural option for the relief of mild to moderate migraine headaches and their associated symptoms. It does not contain aspirin, caffeine or sedatives that are often a feature of other pain relief medications.
However, if your migraine pain is severe, this product may not work for you. You can increase the dosage to a maximum of 6 tablets per day (2 tablets every 4 hours), but no more than that.
It’s also important to bear in mind that this product is formulated only to provide temporary relief from your symptoms; it will not do anything to prevent future attacks.
