    I just went through my second 4 day treatment with dhe and I will never, ever do it again. The first treatment was in April 2012. I received an infusion on Benadryl, followed by raglan and then finally dhe every 8 hours. I slept most of the time and had few issues. This helped bring my daily chronic, intractable migraines down from a 6-7 to a 1-2. My husband and I were elated! It worked for ... Show Full Comment

    I've been a daily migraine sufferer for 17+ yrs. My neurologist suggested a 3 day infusion treatment that failed, he then suggested a 24/7 infusion for 2 weeks.

    I have been using this medication for eleven years (since 2000), and it has been a lifesaver. The neurologist that introduced the medication to me, admitted me for three days where I received a steroid, benadryl, and the DHE via IV every eight hours. The only downfall to this was a bad case of phlebitis. I could not handle the steroid - I made me whacked out. The benadryl and DHE were fine as ... Show Full Comment

    In 2009, I was 19 and had a migraine for 30 days and I received the DHE protocol through IV. At that time it worked wonderfully, other than feeling some minor anxiety that quickly subsided. Now two years later, I have had a migraine for 3 weeks, and after trying a handful of prescriptions my neurologist recommended trying DHE again. First I was given Reglan for nausea, followed by the DHE, and las ... Show Full Comment
