How gammaCore works

gammaCore stimulation icon.

gammaCore activates the vagus nerve with patented, gentle electrical stimulation.

  • The vagus nerve is an important highway of communication between your brain and many parts of the body
  • The vagus nerve plays an important role in regulating pain
No pills icon.

Non-invasive vagus nerve stimulation with gammaCore is believed to help block the pain signals that cause migraine and cluster attacks.

  • Unlike traditional vagus nerve stimulation therapies, gammaCore stimulates the nerve non-invasively through the skin without the need for surgery
  • Avoids many drug-like side effects and inconveniences associated with injectable, inhaled, or pill-based medicines

gammaCore treatment steps

Migraine headache treatment steps

To treat migraine, patients can administer a series of two-minute stimulations.

Dosing instructions for relieving migraine pain.
At the earliest sign of migraine pain:

Patients should give themselves a treatment consisting of 2 two-minute gammaCore stimulations

  • Apply the conductive gel before each stimulation. After 2 minutes, gammaCore will beep twice and automatically discontinue the stimulation
  • Stimulations can be administered on the same side of the neck, or patients can switch sides, if preferred
  • If pain remains 20 minutes after the start of treatment 1, apply 2 more stimulations
  • Two more stimulations may be applied if pain remains 2 hours after the start of treatment 1

Cluster headache prevention treatment steps

To prevent cluster headaches, patients should give themselves a treatment consisting of 3 two-minute stimulations twice a day.

Dosing instructions for preventing cluster headache pain.
