For the past three years,I've been taking Prodrin whenever I get a migraine. It always works quickly and with far less side effects than Imitrex. For me, Prodin has been a wonder drug. Sadly, when I went to the pharmacy to refill my prescripion last month (November 2013, I was told that Prodrin is no longer available as the manufacturer has stopped making it. The pharmacy offered to contact my ... Show Full Comment

I was given Prodrin so I could get off of Esgic Plus. Prodrin works about half the time. I can't take if after about noon time or I won't be able to sleep at night.

I take this for whenever I feel the onset of a migraine. It works within 15-30 mins and I never have to take a second dosage like the bottle says.

Comment:
I took this last night for a migraine. Fell asleep for an hour, woke up and it was gone. So this was great. Not so great was the insomnia I felt for the entire night, or the constant need to urinate every 15 minutes, or the dizziness, shakiness, and racing heart. Probably won't take again because of the side effects.
