The current indications for using Cefaly are:

  • Common migraine
    Attacks come on without any prior warning and can vary in length (4 to 72 hours). Between attacks, there are no symptoms. The pain is violent, pulsating, usually on one side of the head and made worse by physical activity, often being accompanied by nausea or vomiting. Sufferers find noise and light difficult to tolerate.
  • Migraine with aura
    The attack is preceded by an aura (neurological symptoms) such as tingling in one part of the body or a blind spot (scotoma) in the field of vision. The actual attack can then vary in length (4 to 72 hours). Between attacks, there are no symptoms. The pain is violent, pulsating, usually on one side of the head and made worse by physical activity, often being accompanied by nausea or vomiting. Sufferers find noise and light difficult to tolerate.
  • Ophthalmic migraine
    The migraine attack is preceded by a visual aura which often appears in the form of a blind spot (scotoma) in the field of vision, sometimes with flashing outlines. Some patients also speak of an ophthalmic migraine when the pulsating pain of the attack is located around one eye.
  • Episodic migraine
    These are migraines (common or with aura) that are characterised by attacks of varying length (4 to 72 hours). Between attacks, there are no symptoms. The frequency of the attacks varies, ranging from one per month (or less) to several times a week.
  • Chronic migraine
    This is a migraine that has been ongoing for some time and the attacks from it have become very frequent. The headaches are present at least half of the time or more (the patient suffers headaches on more than 14 days in a month).
  • Menstrual migraine
    Menstrual migraines occurs only around the time of a woman's monthly period. The hormonal factor is the crucial one here. The signs of migraine are classical with the feature of being regulated by the menstrual cycle.
  • Anterior tension type headache
    Tight or pressure-type pain, often described like a bar located on the left and right of the anterior part of the skull. Anterior tension type headaches do not get worse with physical activity, nor are they accompanied by vomiting or visual disturbances.
  • Posterior tension type headache
    Tight or pressure-type pain, often described like a heaviness located at the back and the base of the skull. Posterior tension type headaches do not get worse with physical exertion, nor are they accompanied by vomiting or visual disturbances.
  • Chronic headache
    These are almost daily headaches that have been occurring for a long time. The pain is felt like a weight, tightness or pressure, like a bar or a vice crushing the head. This type of headache is often accompanied by the excessive consumption of medications, which can increase the number of headaches (vicious circle).
  • Occipital neuralgia
    This is an irritation or inflammation of the occipital nerve. The sharp pain is like a burn or electric shock, travelling from the top of the neck to the crown of the head. It starts at the cervical spine and is generally caused by arthrosis, lesions secondary to an accident (whiplash), etc. This type of neuralgia is not very common and is often confused with migraine when the pain starts in the occipital region.
