SCHOFIELD, Wis., Aug. 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- PuraMed BioScience®, Inc., (OTCBB:PMBS), a researcher, developer, and marketer of over-the-counter (OTC) medicinal and healthcare products, announced that it will discuss LipiGesic M on Armed Forces Network.
Studies show that thirty-seven percent of military veterans who are returning from combat zones suffer with migraine; this ratio is three to four times greater than that of the general population. These veterans with migraine are twice as likely to suffer Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). This creates a hardship for these veterans since the medications that are commonly used to treat PTSD are incompatible with the prescription medications currently used to treat migraine.
"The drug interactions between the PTSD medications and current prescription migraine treatments can be deadly," said Russ Mitchell, CEO of PuraMed BioScience. "We offer these veterans a highly effective alternative to treat their migraines since LipiGesic M has an excellent safety profile and has no reported drug interactions. It is important for veterans suffering both conditions to find treatment, since the symptoms of one will increase the symptoms of the other causing a vicious cycle. With LipiGesic M, veterans are now safe to treat migraine without having to sacrifice their treatment for PTSD."
LipiGesic M is an over-the-counter formulation of feverfew and ginger that has been clinically tested and found to provide rapid-relief from migraine headache and associated symptoms. When clinical trial results of LipiGesic M are compared to those of prescription medications, LipiGesic M is found to be as effective as the top-selling prescription migraine medication, but without the severe effects.
"We are honored that Armed Forces Network requested two interviews with us after they heard our broadcasts on the Big Biz Show," said Mitchell. "We know that LipiGesic M has been well received by the troops and has been battle tested on the frontlines in Afghanistan. It quickly became one of the most requested items in the care packages that were sent to the front. Since it does not cause severe or debilitating side effects, military personnel can take LipiGesic M and get back to the important work of defending our country."
