Iranian researchers have made an herbal-based spray that can treat migraine headaches. This spray has been introduced to pharmacies with the permission of the Iran’s Food and Drug Administration.
According to ISNA, a medicine called ‘Migraine Cut’ has been developed by a knowledge-based company. It is the first spray to treat migraine headaches. This combination of herbs is the result of 25 years of research and development.
‘Migraine Cut’ is a combination of Lavender, Marjoram, Fennel, Violet and other herbs. This medication is sprayed daily through the nose. The advantages of nasal delivery are the ease of drug absorption, painlessness, safe use, high oral and anal absorption, rapid absorption by the brain and the central nervous system, and not entering the secondary metabolic pathway in the gastrointestinal tract.
The course of treatment with this drug is 4 months, during which the patient should use 6 sprays and the effect of the medication will be seen during this period.
This medicine does not have any side effects of chemical drugs and it has already been tested.
