I have used ergotamine drugs over 40 years, when I started getting cluster headaches. Now my migraines are intermittent. No other migraine drugs have worked for me. Ergotamine-Caffeine Oral is easy to use and effective for migraine onset. If I get a full blown migraine before I take the drug it takes a long time to work.

Medication has been discontinued by the manufacturer... have to switch meds. FDA required the manufacturer to pull it from the market since it was never properly studied and actually grandfathered in years ago. Other than that, the med when used gave me severe stomach upset but that beats a migraine any day. Reliable, easy to use, cheap, and effective.

It has helped my headaches for over 10 years and now they are no longer making the medicine. Now to find one that will. Very disturbing that the company is no longer making it.

I have suffered from migraines for the past 12 yrs, previously I took Maxalt at the onset and that worked. About four yrs ago they started to increase in their occurance and intensity. I began having them about once a week and they lasted longer. The Maxalt no longer worked. My doctor said they were becoming chronic, so he put me on a preventive treatment of topomax and now I take Ergotamine when I am getting a migraine. It has helped a lot. The headache goes away within 30 min to 1 hr. I only get migraines about once every two or three months if I am stressed out.
