Midrin alternatives

Kim Community Member February 21, 2011
  • I have struggled with migraines since I was a young girl.  After trying many different types of prescriptions, I found Midrin to be a huge help to me.  Now they have stopped making it.  Does anyone have any good alternatives?  I am thinking of contacting a compounding pharmacy to see if they could do something for me but am wondering if part of the problem was getting one of the main components of the drug.  Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated!  Thanks!

    Fioricet has been a good substitute for me.

It may be a good idea to find a compounding pharmacy to have them make the medication for you. When you get a chance, take a look at the article, Preventive, Abortive, and Rescue Medications - What's the Difference? for more information on Migraine medications.
