Sydolil contains Aspirin, Caffeine and Ergotamine and not, there is no medication currently on the U.S. market that combines all three of these.

All three of them are available, just not combined in one medication.

There are several formulations of Aspirin and Caffeine that are available, even over the counter, however, the Ergotamine would have to be taken separately.




Has she tried consulting with her doctor? They would be best able to help her find an alternative.

It used to be perscribed in the US but it lost its FDA approval because it can cause either kidny or liver problems (not sure which).

Ask her doctor about "Cafergot". It is an ergotermine, caffine combination drug. It is the oldest migraine medication on the market, but it is the only thing that works for me.

I' ve been taking this drug from a very long time (15 years maybe). It' s been the only one that has been working everytime a have a migraine crisis. Before was sold over-the-counter, unfortunately, 3 years ago one has to get a prescription for it, and also has became difficult to get it because seems like always they don't have it on stock. I tried Cafergot but didn't work for me though.

The closest equivalent to Sydolill in the U.S. Is BUTALB-ACETAMIN-CAFF 50-325-40, 90/22. I have taken Sydolill for years but it's readily available in Mexico even with a prescription. This us equivalent requires a prescription also. A home remedy that also works for mild migraines at the first sign is a cup of black coffe with the juice of a half Mexican lemon( small green lemon no sugar) hope it's helpful.

I am currently taking it and it IS the only thing that works for me. I have visited the Dr and tried many things and have spent more money that i care to admit about my headaches. This really works for my crazy headaches and it doesn't upset my stomach at all like some medications my US Dr had recommended. I actually had to go to mexico to a Drs visit and get it prescribed. Good luck!!. I know how frustrating it can get when it seems like nothing works.

There used to be a pill called Cafergot available by prescription in Canada. Think it's still available but they try to talk you into the newer things. I prefer Sydolil as well
