    My local pharmacy says name brand Midrin is not made anymore, other pharmacies tell me that it is back-ordered.  Does anyone know the real situation?Generic Midrin does not help with my headaches!

    Betty,

     

    -:¦:-•:*'""*:•.-:¦:-•*Welcome to MyMigraineConnection!*•-:¦:-•:*'""*:•.-:¦:-

     

    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!

     

    Welcome again,

    Teri

      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?

      Carol,

       

      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.
