Micrainin as a headache remedy

I'm wondering if the Micrainin name wasn't once used as an OTC headache remedy before it was marketed as a sedative. Way back in the late 1950s I used to see a commercial using a doctor type in a white lab coat pitching Micrainin as a headache remedy for "intelligent people" with the main pitch being "headaches differ, people differ." I'm not making this up. We were served by New York TV and I've never had anyone who remembers such a brand. ## Yes, it is possible. Companies can reuse a name, or even sell them. I couldn't find anything on it, but I can assure you that it has happened. Does anyone remember more?
