Our expert says:
Migril contains a substance called ergotamine, which constricts the arteries, and prevents their wall from stretching and becoming painful when you drink alcohol. The problem with ergotamine though is that it causes what is known as Rebound Headache - regular use actually makes the headaches worse and more frequent. This is even worse when ergotamine is combined with caffeine, as with Migril. The best way to solve your problem is to treat the source of your pain – the arteries.
