Midrin cap

red and white capsule with; ep1 and 101 printed on both the red and white portions of the capsule. ## Midrin is a vasoconstrictor (shrinks the blood vessels) specifically in the brain for migraines, but has allegedly been blamed for cardiovascular problems, and even the generic form is not available to legal drugstores. I've sworn by this medicine for my migraines the past 30 years, and I'm pretty frightened by this news, because I carry a bottle with me everywhere I go, just in case a migraine strikes. The nasal and under-the-tongue migraine meds prescribed in the last 10 years give me heart palpitations, shortness of breath, etc., but the Midrin did NOT, so I've got to find something, or decide if this life is worth living without a medication that has helped me all of the...

Midrin where can I get it

I have been taking Midrin for the past 10 years for migraines because I don't get any side effects from it and it works really well. Now all of a sudden the pharmacies in my area (3 of them) are saying that they can't get any or it is on backorders for the past 3 months. Do they still make it? I tried a different medication and it makes me really dissy so I really need to know how to get the Midrin. How can I get a presecription filled and where even in the mail would be ok. ## IVE BEEN TAKEN MIDRIN FOR 8YRS ALSO NOW THEY TELL ME LAST MONTH NO MORE NOT AVALIBLE BULL, CAN ANYONE HELP ME ON THIS OR A GENERIC IVE BEEN SUFFERING FROM MIGRANES FOR 35 YRS MIDRIN WORKS IF YOU KNOW OF SOMETHING ELSE OR BETTER LET ME KNOW THXS ## I am sorry to have to inform you of this, but that is corr...

Is It Safe To Take Midrin For Migraine And Also Tamadol

I am taking Tramadol. Is it safe to take this when I take Midrin for migraine headaches. ## I didn't find any interactions, or problems listed between the two medications, but you should always check such information to be safe. Learn more Tramadol details here. If you're relatively new to taking Tramadol, you should be made aware that it is derived from an opiate and can cause side effects that are similar to those of opiates, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I have took Benadryl, Midrin 3 hrs ago, can I repeat? Any other suggestions? Headache unbearable??

Getting Midrin

I have used Midrin sometimes over the last 30 years for migraines. Then I could not find any. Midrin is the only thing that works for me. I had a severe migraine that lasted 10 days and I now have a blind spot where the flashing lights were for all that time. The eye doctor I saw 24 hours into this did not find anything serious, because the effect is in the part of the brain that processes vision. I finally found out about compounding pharmacies and my doctor wrote the prescription for the 3 ingredients: C-Acet 325mg/dichloralphena/isometh65mg I found a compounding pharmacy in my area. The prescription was faxed to them with my pharmacy insurance info. I picked it up the same day. My insurance covered it with a somewhat higher co-pay. Midrin has been made hard to get as it was not teste...

Taking midrin, gabapentin and tramadol

How many hours should I wait after taking midrin before I take gabapentin and tramadol? ## There is really no set time frame, but you should be aware that combining these medications that can cause depression of the central nervous system, could cause you to experience more nausea, dizziness, and drowsiness than usual. In some cases, especially if a person has underlying health conditions, the FDA warns that these issues could be fatal. Have they all been prescribed for you?

Does anyone still manufacture isometh/APAP/dichlor for migraine treatment?

My pharmacy is telling me this has been discontinued and I am desparate to find some as it is the only thing that works on my migraines! ## I'm sorry, but it appears that it is no longer available, at all. We have had several people asking about it and I can't find any company that lists it as being available. What other medications have you tried? Have you consulted your doctor about the issue? ## My doctor was unable to recommend an alternative to the Midrin/Epidrin (isometh/dichlor/apap) combination. It is the vaso-dilatation effect of that drug combo that is what seems to help the migraines brought on by changes in barometric pressure. I am going to try low dose Imitrex as an alternative, which is available both as a pill or a nasal spray, but would prefer to not use his mor...

isomet/apap/dichlph( midrin eq)

red capsule ## Midrin is a combination medication that contains Acetaminophen, Isometheptene and Dichloralphenazone, it is most commonly used to treat severe headaches and migraines. Learn more Midrin details here. Side effects may include nausea, dizziness and drowsiness. Are there any other questions or concerns? ## Can you get the drug without the Apap (acetamoniphen)? I can buy and add that in. I know I definitely need the sedative part of Midrin as without it (even with strong opioid pain meds) I cannot fall asleep thus cannot totally get rid of the migraine (lay down in a quiet, dark room with a bag of ice on my head after taking my pain meds and then need to sleep...without a sedative, it can take a very long time to sleep and thus I lose a lot of my life as I deal with chronic i...

isometh acetamin dichlor cap

I take this med for my migraines. My insurance will not pay anything, and it is costing me almost $100 for 25 pills. Is there a generic I can purchase instead? ## Hello, Gilmer Gal! How are you? Unfortunately, what you've listed is the generic. The name brand would be Midrin. Have you tried checking the price with other pharmacies in your area? They may be cheaper. Another alternative is to try one of the discount cards, such as the free one offered on this site. You click the link, put in your email address and print the card. They do save a lot of money for some people. Typical side effects to this medication may include nausea, drowsiness and dizziness. Does anyone else have any suggestions that may help? ## Thank you so much. Wow, in my next life I want to be a pharmaceutical co...

Manufacturer & Distributor

My pharmacy cannot get this any more for me. Who manufactures this and who distributes it. I would like to contact them. MIDRIN ## The following medications contain the same active ingredients, and might be able to help you in a similar fashion: Amidrine Duradrin Midchlor Migquin Migratine Migrazone Migrex Mitride Hope this helps! ## Hello. You might also want to try Carnrick Laboratories Inc located in Cedar Knolls NJ phone number 201-267-2670. Hope this helps and have a nice day! ## For the Midrin that previous message was. TY ## That number doesn't work. ## CVS says they cannot get it. Walgreens says they must special order it. Finally something that works on my migraines without knocking me out. Anyone know what happened? ## I live in Seattle & as prescribed this for the 1st...

Migraine medicines

I was taking Epidrin for my migraines and it helped. It was taken off the market along with Midrin. Is there anywhere I can get it? Does anyone know of a pharmacy that makes the compound? I only have a few left and I'm feeling desperate. ## There are some compounding pharmacies that have been making it, if your doctor orders it. Can you post back with, at least, your general location? Our site is open to users all over the world, so just as an example, I know of several compounding pharmacies here in the Seattle metro area, but that's really not going to help you if you're in Georgia. ## I live in New Jersey. A relative found a pharmacy that would make the compound, however, he wants over $130 for a thirty day supply! Any help would be appreciated. Thanks. ## I am afraid tha...
