Why is Cafergot prescribed?
Cafergot, a combination of Ergotamine Tartrate and Caffeine, is used to treat and prevent migraine headaches. A migraine headache is usually a severe throbbing or pulsating pain felt only on one side lasting for several minutes, hours, or days. It is usually accompanied by other symptoms like nausea, vomiting, or light sensitivity.
What does it do?
Ergotamine is classified under Ergot Alkaloids, which works by reducing blood flow to the cerebral arteries, while Caffeine is a neuro stimulant that increases the activity of the brain and decreases the blood flow to the brain. When combined, these two drugs work by preventing the dilation of blood vessels in the brain and helps relieve headaches.
How should I take it?
Cafergot (Ergotamine Tartrate/Caffeine) is currently available as a 1mg/100mg tablet taken whole (not split, chewed, or crushed) by mouth with or without food upon the onset of a migraine headache.
The dosage strength and frequency depend on every patient’s condition and the doctor’s prescription. It is imperative that you do not self-medicate and only take this drug after consulting with your doctor or pharmacist to determine the best dosage and dosing schedule for the treatment of your condition.
What if I missed a dose?
The desired effects of prescribed medications will only be achieved if taken properly. As much as possible, strictly follow your doctor’s prescribed dosing schedule.
