Ergomar®

Type: 
Medication

Ergomar® is a medication containing 2mg of ergotamine tartrate to be taken sublingually. Unlike other formulations of ergotamine, Ergomar® does not contain caffeine. Because success in aborting migraines is dependent on rapidity of treatment, one sublingual tablet should be placed under the tongue at the first sign of an attack. Another should be placed under the tongue at half-hourly intervals if necessary for a total of three tablets (6mg total) in any 24-hour period. No more than five tablets should be taken in one week.

This medicine can cause rebound headaches and, therefore, should not be used more than 2 days per week.

Ergomar® may be difficult to find in pharmacies. Ergostat®, a similar sublingual medication, is no longer available. Some special pharmacies may be able to compound this medication at the request of your physician.

Testimonial

Just a note of thanks to the NHF for hosting these helpful online seminars.  The recent "Fibromyalgia and Migraine" was the second Webinar I've attended, and I learned a great deal.

The Webinars are easy to log into, the presentations are professional, and the presenters do not "talk down" to their auditors. The NHF is apparently choosing subject matter experts with care, and the information is up-to-date. 

Again, thank you for the hard work. I look forward to future Webinars.
