Butterbur

Post by minimom on March 24th 2008, 5:15 pm

I had been supplying a friend back home with feverfew tincture for his migraines. It was helping alot! That is, until he developed a rash. So now he's not taking it and is having the worst headaches ever. So I'm researching butterbur. Anybody have any info?

I have never used it, nor know too much about it- amazing looking plant.

the Clematis is blooming in many places now, mine just has buds- not opened, how about tinc. some of that? That would be taken before the pain part of the migrain hit... that was one of the plants we folked at Los Padres last year.. what a great trip,
Very Happy feverfew hasn't worked for me either. Neutral

Thanks for the suggestion. It just might work for him since it is in a different family than feverfew.

Thanks. Does wood betony make you sleepy or lethargic? And do you take it as a preventative or symptomatically?

From what I understand. It's preventative. I take 1 dropper/day
Not sure how it works.

no sleepiness or lethargy.
