Cafergot tablet (ergotamine and caffeine) is a combination medicine used to treat or prevent a migraine type headache. Ergotamine works by constricting blood vessel walls in the head, relieving dilation that causes the pain of migraine headaches. Caffeine helps the ergotamine to be absorbed into the bloodstream more effectively. The tablets are more effective if taken at the first sign of a migraine headache. It will not prevent migraine headaches or reduce the number of attacks.
We currently have the generic Ergotamine (also called Vasaograin) from India manufactured by Cadila. Ergotamine is available in tablet form, 1 mg of ergotamine and 100 mg of caffeine.
