Further to my comment on 6 January, this morning I woke with the beginning of a migraine and knew that today was the day to trial the Cafergot Suppositories kept in the fridge. Because I usually take 1 tablet (1mg), I cut the 2mg suppository in half, wrapped half in foil and returned to the fridge.

I have taken cafergot for over twenty years. It has been the only thing that works. It has now been discontinued in Aust. My whole family suffer from migraines. We all used it. Now we have nothing to help us. Bring it back!
