How to use gammaCore for migraine

Using gammaCore to prevent migraine headache

Daily:
Give yourself 3 treatments (morning, mid-day, and night) consisting of two consecutive 2-minute stimulations.

  • The first daily treatment should be applied within 1 hour of waking. The second daily treatment should be applied 4-6 hours after the first treatment. The third daily treatment should be applied at night.
  • Apply conductive gel before each stimulation. After 2 minutes, gammaCore will beep twice and automatically discontinue stimulation.
  • Stimulations during a treatment should be applied on the same side of the neck. Additional treatments may be applied to either side of the neck.

This is a suggested treatment. Please speak with your healthcare provider to determine the right plan for you.
