I have tried many medications to "help" my migraine which if untreated is quite debilitating. Migril is the only one which arrests the progression of the headache and allows me to function normally and not have to retire to my bed. Migril is no longer available in Australia and I have suffered sinificantly - always trying to find some other medication to help without luck. The reason being I am told was the factory in Spain was bought out and our Aust distributor (Fauldings) was unable to continue supplying. Disaster -- the hit and miss attempts to stop migraine taking over my life. However great news - on a trip to Fiji I discovered that I could buy it there (manufactured in Pakistan or India)

Truly it was like winning the Million Dollar Lottery.Thank God.

Migril - an oldie but a goodie !!!!!!

:D

    Hi,

    I have just been told here in the UK that Migril is no longer available here too due to the same reason. Do you have an online link to where I can buy it?

    Hi there i hope ur doing well by now. I know u posted 11 years ago. I have been a migraine sufferer for almost 30 years and im also struggling. I really hope ur not takingv too much of this ergotomine because after a while it does stop working as it has for me. Im married to an Albanian and when i went to albania a few years ago i found this stuff there. If u have albanian friends or know somebody that goes there yearly or regularly get them to bring some back for u and there is no amount that u cant bring back. The med there is called MIGRETIL which contains belladonna, caffeine AND ergotomine. Im also from Australia. Im in Adelaide.

    Please dont abuse it though or it wont work for anymore.

    The best of luck..
