Reviews for Ergotamine

For Migraine: "A highly qualified neurologist and headache specialist gave our 13 year old daughter this medication and within 48 she had lost circulation below the injection site in both legs and was pre-gangrenous. Two weeks in intensive care followed, reversing -- thank God-- this unmentioned side effect. She learned to walk again but never regained full function of her big toes. beware of ergotamines!"

For Migraine: "I have used this medicine for 60 years and have found that a dose of 0.5 mg concurrently with 50 mg caffeine taken in conjunction with 3 x 200 mg pills of ibuprofen (total dose 600 mg) enables me to continue my life and work without too many problems. The alternative of not taking this medicine is horrifying with nausea, vomit, head pain and total dereliction for 2 days. I have also experienced cramps and breathing difficulties without the use of ergotamine tartrate."

Ergomar (ergotamine) for Migraine: "Medications with ergotamine are the only thing that have ever stopped a migraine at the visual disturbance stage for me. I used to take Cafergot, but that took forever if I had just eaten. Ergomar dissolves under the tongue and works fast. It's the best thing ever for a "classic" migraine."
