Is anyone taking Migrelief? As soon as I started taking it (within hours) my urine turned bright yellow. I have been taking it for about two months, and still... bright yellow. Is this a side-effect that anyone else experienced, or should I talk to my doc? TIA

Hey txmcs,
Welcome to the boards!!  I take Migrahealth, which is the exact same product just marketed under a different name.  I don't have the problem you mentioned, but it could be caused by a number of things.  It could be an interaction with some medication or other suppliment you are taking.   You could ask your pharmacist about this, but most likely, you are simply not drinking enough water every day.  No matter what you are taking, if you drink enough water, the urine should be fairly colorless.  Drinking water constantly keeps the plumming working, which is really important for anyone taking anti-migraine medications, as a lot of the medications are prone to build-up in the kidney and give you kindey stones.  Some are so large, they have to be surgically removed.  Been there, done that.  Somewhere you don't want to be.
Anyway, try drinking at least 64oz. of plain water per day, in addition to any other beverages you might have.  Give this a couple of weeks to work, and if you are still having the problem, talk to you doctor about it.
Just my experience.  My neurologist swears by the stuff.  Let us know how you are doing.

Hey txmcs,
Migrelief contains feverfew, magnesium, and riboflavin. This last ingedient (a specific B vitamin) causes one's urine to turn bright yellow. It is nothing to be worried about. I would still let your MD know you are taking Migrelief (and tell him or her all the ingredients) because feverfew is a vasoconstictor (squeezes down blood vessels) and it is the sort of thing your MD would need to know you were on in case you developed high blood pressure or decided to become pregnant (must not take feverfew during pregnancy), took other supplements that could cause vasoconstriction, etc. I would be interested to know if, after you have been on it a few months, you develop a rebound headache if you stop it.

I began taking Migrelief yesterday and immediately noticed the bright yellow urine. I drink a gallon of water daily, so I was very concerned the herbs were effecting my kidneys. I read that it was just a minor side effect from vitamin B2. Other side effects I am having include fatigue, heartburn, hunger, abdominal cramps, achiness, headache, and constipation. One good side effects is that Migrelief is helping with hot flashes.
