M 512 with no scoring on either side what is it? Maybe a migraine med I am told but no name???

I have a pill also described as a pill for migraine but I do not know what it is other than that and I want to know more. On one side it has an M on top and 512 on bottom with no score separating the two, on the other side it has nothing and no score on that side either. All I read about that is close has scoring on one side, this has no scoring at all and the inscription just as told above. Does any one with migrains know what this is??? Thank you so much for your time! ## There are two white tablets with similar imprints but are two different drugs. One is a round pill with M over S12 (could look like 512). That is Sumatriptan 100 mg used for treating migraines (NDC 0378-5632). From DailyMed: Inactive Ingredients: - Silicon Dioxide - Croscarmellose Sodium - Hypromelloses - Lactose M...

PLS HELP! I used to use fioricet yrs ago when it was made by Watson, blue tablet and head imprint. Change 2012 . I had no idea. Now my neuro will prescribe.

Ask pharmacy how to get old ones that worked and how doc needs to write script! They will cost you!

Mfg Cypress

I take Ergotamine for headaches. I get my meds thru Medco. My insurance pays most of the cost for generics. Last time Medco said they didn't have Ergotamine in stock (first time that has ever happened over the years.) They said they would need to send me Cafergot, the brand name. It costs me 10 times more. I need to know why I can not get Ergotamine.?? ## Same problem with caffergot or its generic ergotan/caff. Wally World used to charge $5 for a generic. Now they say they cannot get a generic. The real caffergot cost $300. ## Unfortunately, shortages sometimes happen, or a manufacture discontinues a medication, and while it is problematic, there's really nothing we can do about it. The typical side effects of this medication may include nausea, insomnia, dizziness, and dry mout...

I have been taking it for years, but two days ago I started experiencing numbness in my upper left lip. ## I take Fioricet all the time. I would bet it’s the Imitrex that did that to you. I haven’t used that med in years but I remember it gave me weird tingling or something. ## Hello, I also take Fioricet or Fiorinal and have for 30+ year's.. I have NEVER had or even heard of something like you describe.. I would also have to agree and say it's the imitrex. Check with your Dr, best of luck! ## Yes, this can be a side effect of Imitrex, according to FDA reports. Other side effects may include nausea, flatulence, abdominal discomfort, and fever. How...

IF you're getting EPISODIC MIGRAINES, like the type that my mother-in-law had (you get them here & there; once in awhile) those med...
