No, Caraco is no longer making brand name Midrin. The medication is, however, available under the brand name Duradin, and some of our members have also been able to get a generic isometheptene/acetaminophen/dichloralphenazone.
Hope this helps!
I also have been taking Midrin for many years. Why has the drug been discontinued? I am distressed to think that this reliable relief of migraine pain is no longer available. Is it available in any other country?
No, Midrin will no longer be available anywhere. I just posted about this and possible alternatives. Please take a look at Midrin for Migraine and Tension-Type Headache - Definitely Discontinued.
I do take the generic form but my pharmacy told me that they can't get it either. I too have been on it for many years. I don't see how they can stop making something out of the blue when so many people take it. I have tried many many things and it was the only thing that worked. Imetrix was bragged up so much and It did nothing for mine. It's a rip off anyway because you only get 9 pills a month. I get more migraines than one or two in a month.
I was finally able to talk with a representative of the Caraco Company which manufactured Midrin. Midrin HAS been discontinued from their product line. How sad for those of us who depended on Midrin for relief from Migraine Headaches. Several generic brands are available. These have not helped in the past but guess I will give them a try again.
I talked with someone at Caraco too and posted this today - Midrin for Migraine and Tension-Type Headache - Definitely Discontinued.
Where can we get brand name Midrin in the Albuquerque area?
You're not going to be able to get brand Midrin. It's not being made at all any longer. Please see Midrin for Migraine and Tension-Type Headache - Definitely Discontinued.
