Marcus,

 

There are generic ergotamine tartrate and caffeine tablets (the same ingredients as Cafergot) being manufactured by at least two companies, Westward and Mikart. Your pharmacist should be able to order these for you. I'd check with the pharmacist and your doctor on this as a solution.

 

Good luck,

Teri
