  • Has anyone who had great success with midrin had positive results with prodrin? I was also thinking of having midrin compunded.  Has anyone had + results with their insurance co. in paying for the compunding? Thanks!

    Hi Laura,

         Midrin has been successfully obtained from our

         local compounding pharmacies until two weeks

         ago.

     

         The ingredient isometheptene (a vasoconstrictor)

         has become unavailable from suppliers.  This is

         also an ingredient in Prodrin.

     

         The cost has been about $1.00 per capsule.

         My insurance won't cover anything from a

         compounding pharmacy.

      Thanks for your response phred.  I had my MD phone in a script today for the compounding and the insurance co told me today they'd cover it. We'll see.... I'm guardedly optimistic. I am aware of the shortage of the vasoconstrictor, I hope it's not a dismal situation. Best wishes to you!
