Does Anyone Know Why Cafergot Is No Longer Available In Canada?
A MyMigraineTeam Member asked a question 💭

I found the combination of Caffeine and Erogotamine in this drug to be very effective.

I believe you can get it from Northwestpharmacy.com which is an online Canadian pharmacy and it is certified. (Phone number can only be seen by the question and answer creators) i buy all my meds from a Canadian pharmacy it is a lot less expensive if your insurance does not cover meds.

My mom took cafergot for 20 yrs. I've tried getting it and did for a short time before they stopped making it in the US as well. They helped, with a nausea med was a must.

Caffeine helps for me a little.

Thank you Amber. Interesting to know. Maybe they weren't making enough money off of it. A shame for Migraine sufferers, because it actually worked. The closest that I get to Cafergot now is using Migranal Nasal spray, which contains Erogotamine, and drinking an Expresso.

Category is an old medication that was used for migraines.
Your Mom may want to think about seeing a headache specialist that can give her relief and may just work better and faster with no nausea happening.
Good luck to your Mom and God bless you for being such a great daughter.:)
