2. Identify Appropriate Patients for Therapy
gammaCore is a non-pharmacologic treatment option that can be used both acutely and preventatively to manage chronic migraine and cluster headaches offering you the flexibility to design an individual treatment plan based on the patients headache frequency, symptom severity and co-morbid conditions. gammaCore can be used alone or in addition to other treatments. gammaCore should not be used by people with an implanted device such as a pacemaker, hearing aid implant, or any implanted electronic device. It should not be used in people who are diagnosed with narrowing of the arteries (carotid atherosclerosis) or those who have had surgery to cut the vagus nerve in their neck. Side effects may include hoarseness, shortness of breath, change in voice, & skin irritation. For full prescribing information, refer to the Instructions for Use.
