8/13/07 #2 - Is Midrin still available for Migraines?

Ask the Clinician Health Pro
  • Full Question:
    Hi! I tried to get a refill for the prescription drug Midrin this week. I have been told it is presently unavailable and that there is no information as to when it may become available again. I have used this drug at the onset of occasional migraines for several years and have been happy with the results. Do you know if it will be available soon, or if it will ever be available again? I live in a city with several large drug store chains and am having difficulty accepting that Midrin is not available. I will ask my doctor about Imitrex, but the possible side effects for that drug seem more dramatic than the side effects for Midrin. Thank you very much for your help, Liz.
