This treatment did not work for me. I had this treatment in the hospital in Oct. and vomited after every treatment (every 8 hours for 3 days). Before the DHE, I had a migraine for 3 weeks and I left the hospital with it.

Comment:
I have chronic daily migraines. My Dr. prescribed this for me to take on day 3 of a migraine, so as not to take too many triptans and get rebound headaches. I hate giving myself this shot in my thigh, it really hurts. But it is effective & will often take the headache away for two days.

Comment:
I was given DHE for severe migraines a few years ago. It works wonders sometimes after 1 dose and sometimes after 2-3. When I started it I was on Topamax as a preventative, now I am on propranolol and I seem to get light headed with the DHE so I have stopped it.

Comment:
The only complaint is that it was given by IV to myself over a 3 day period while admitted to a VA facility. Long time laying around but the result was great. It has been three days and it is the first three days that I can remember in months that I did not have a level 5 or higher headache.
