The Relaspen Story

How Does Relaspen Work?

Powerful, Easy, Effective Care

Relaspen is currently being developed by a family physician on a mission to provide patients a better option for their migraine care. 

A Safe, Simple Alternative to Existing Migraine Treatments

Relaspen is a portable, self-administered intra-nasal medical device that uses a soft touch, flexible tube, housed in a portable case, to apply a local anesthetic, lidocaine, directly to the SPG (Sphenopalatine Ganglion) nerve, located directly behind the bridge of the nose. By relaxing or “blocking” this nerve, Relaspen can significantly reduce a migraine anytime, anywhere, in as little as 20-minutes.

Put the power of your migraine treatment into your

OWN HANDS.

How it Works

Meet Dr. Cook,

Migraine Pioneer

A native of Eastaboga, Alabama, Dr. Jason Cook graduated magna cum laude from the University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee. He attended The University of Alabama School of Medicine, and went on to complete his residency with the MAHEC Family Medicine Program in Asheville, NC. He spent four years serving underserved rural populations of North Carolina as a member of the National Health Service Corps, then began his current practice with The Family Health Centers in 2014.

In 2015 he founded The Family Health Centers Headache Clinic, where he provides both primary care and specialty headache care for thousands of patients every year. He is a Clinical Instructor of Family Medicine for the University of North Carolina School of Medicine where he lectures on advanced headache management to medical students and residents.

Industry Insights

For many people that have migraines, their headaches begin in adolescence and adulthood. Their recurrence can be frequent to unpredictably erratic. There is a wide range of experiences from annoyance to incapacitation for extended periods. Some people are unable to function in their lives during migraine onsets, which may last up to several days.

For several decades, acute migraine sufferers could be prescribed opioids by primary caregivers or emergency personnel. With our better understanding of the opioid crisis, we better understand the risk of dependence and are trying to move away from reliance upon addictive treatments. Relaspen represents an effective, quick-acting, non-narcotic treatment for migraine sufferers.

There are a lot of migraine treatments out there, but for some patients the available treatments don’t help. Some medications are expensive, unpredictable, or simply don’t work. The SPG block works for a majority of patients by eliminating or dramatically decreasing the severity of migraines. Relaspen can get patients back to work or their activities in as little as 15 minutes. Blake Fagan, MD

Many patients struggle with migraines for decades before seeking treatments. Patients treated with some traditional medications may feel like zombies, can’t drive, and can’t work. Often their physicians won’t suggest alternate treatments and patients will remain on heavy medication despite these side effects. Dr. Cook is the exception. He strives to offer patients a way to manage migraine symptoms while using less medication. Stopping migraines at the onset using Relaspen can be a key to breaking the migraine cycle and returning patients to work, to relationships, to parenting, and to life. Nicole Lindsey, DC

Migraine Patient Testimonials

Before Relaspen, I tried many types of treatments that didn’t help. I was having three or four migraines a week. I work long hours and am raising a toddler. I first tried a “cocktail” of medicines, but was limited by my insurance, which only allowed nine pills per month. I needed about nine pills per week.

Relaspen makes parenting and working much easier. I no longer feel overly medicated. My previous meds were tearing my stomach up, but now I can tell a huge difference. I’m down to two migraines a month. Before Relaspen, I was going to the doctor once or twice a month. Now, I haven’t been to the doctor in five months!

I tried Botox treatment twice, but it didn’t work, although it was very expensive. I am 67 years old and have migraines on my right side that affect my right eye and cause nausea. Relaspen is the best thing I’ve ever had for a migraine! It’s really nice to know that I can make plans with people! In fact, I’m actually getting to go on vacation again without having to worry about headaches. It’s nice I can use Relaspen myself while I’m on a trip.

It’s wonderful to be able to treat myself at home when I’m in severe pain. Relaspen knocks my migraine out entirely. In 15 to 20 minutes, I’m back on my feet.
