Erythromycin has an elimination half life of approximately 1.5 hours. It takes 5.5 x elimination half lifes for a medicine to be out of ones system. So erythromycin should be out of your system in 5.5 x 1.5 hour (8.25 hours). You could starting taking Cafergot from the next day after you stop eryhthromycin.
