I've been experiencing migraine type headaches for over 30 years. Cafergot is the only "vaso-constrictor" type drug that has successfully worked for me. To all people who have taken Cafergot in the past, you can buy this drug through overseas methods, and it's safe and effective.

Cafergot has worked for me for 20+ yrs, I do not understand why they took it off the market, I am hoping they bring it back. I am wondering if anyone out there has found anything comparable to cafergot...

As usual, a medication is unavailable when it works perfectly! I have been suffering from migraines for 28 years. I can not take the new class of migraine medications like Imetrex and Zomig due to shortness of breath. Since it is not available anymore, my doctor prescribed Fioricet, which works just as good as Cafergot.

Cafergot suppositories are back on the market! In April the manufacturer, G&W Laboratories, Inc., made it available to Walgreens. I just got my supply after trying many other drug treatments without success. Check out www.gwlabs.com Good luck to all of my fellow migraine sufferers!

I am a 65 year old female, having severe migraine headaches since high school. I never got relief until I was prescribed Cafergot in my late 20's. I've taken it for years and can't do without it!I wonder why they took it off the market and if anyone has found anything close to it...if so please share.
