If you are a sufferer of migraines you know very well that the pain, nausea, and sensitivity to light and noise can be nothing short of complete misery. You are probably also able to tell when a migraine can be treated at home or if it is so bad that it will most likely send you to the emergency room. And, due to other headache-inducing things such as exorbitant co-pays and waiting rooms, the ER is probably your last resort. What you may not know is that there is an alternative to waiting out the pain or waiting at the hospital. It is now possible for you to relive migraines without disorienting medications or outrageous doctor bills. As one RevitalIV patient notes below, her first choice is to relive migraines with IV Hydrations. Here’s what our patient Beth says:


I get headaches frequently that are so severe that nothing over the counter or even prescribed helps. Once the headache sets in, I feel like something is ripping through my skull. I can no longer bear the pain, and I am off to the ER. There, the usual protocol is a CT scan and a cocktail of pain meds that take my headache away but usually make me feel worse from the other side effects. However, on one trip to the hospital, the doctor gave me a “cocktail” of a different sort–a yellow, “banana bag,” IV that was composed of nothing but fluids and vitamins. It took away my migraine, and I actually felt energized instead of drugged.


The problem with an ER “banana bag,” as doctors call them, is that my co-pay is $100 and the bills for the CT scan that follow (which insurance does not pick up) is around $300 (if I’m lucky). So, my migraine costs me a nice chunk of change and a considerable amount of time.


I have had many MRIs over the past 10 years and have been to many specialists, and like most migraine sufferers are told, no one can pinpoint the cause. It was my new neurologist who recently recommended the RELIEVE: Myers cocktail at RevitalIV. This treatment, which has me in and out in less than an hour and a half, allows me to relieve my migraine with IV hydration, avoiding prescription medications and a huge dent in my finances.


So far in the past 6 months I have been twice and both times I felt better within 45min to an hour. I follow up with my doctor after my visit so he has documentation of my visit, and he has also been in touch with Dr. Rosselli (RevitalIV’s founder) regarding my care.


I realize that this is not for everyone but I am more than thankful that I have a safe alternative to the ER.


RevitalIV Patient

RevitalIV’s RELIEVE: Myers Cocktail remedies a lot of symptoms and conditions, but it is so effective at curing migraines with IV Hydration that it could be named a “Migraine Cure” (1). Many clinical trials have shown that to relieve migraines with IV hydration (that includes vitamins such as magnesium) is to treat both the headache itself and the debilitating symptoms that accompany it (nausea, dizziness, vomiting).

As Beth notes, this treatment is not for everybody. RevitalIV always suggests that you contact your primary physician first before undergoing any type of wellness treatment. But, for frequent migraine sufferers who do not wish to take strong prescription medicines, RevitalIV provides a safe, effective, and less expensive alternative to a trip to the ER.
