I have suffered with migraine's and osteoarthritis of my neck for years. I saw a headache specialist for this on a regular basis. If I developed a migraine that lasted for more then a week I would see the Dr., who would prescribe a 'burst' to zap the headache. We always found that my headaches would respond to Methergine. I finally decided that because my headaches were under control and the triggers were identified ( inflammation and strain from neck ), I could turn my med. prescriptions over to my PC Physician in order to eliminate so many appts. I recently saw her and we discussed my current head and neck pain and she ordered the Methylergonovine Maleate 0.2 mg, 1 tablet, 3 times per day. My question, does anyone else use this as a 'burst' and is this the correct dosage or is this the dosage for prevention of migraine's ? The headache specialist charges me for a full office call if I were to have them answer my question, ( one reason I left this clinic ). I cannot find anything about recommended dosage on the Internet and I want to stop this headache in it's tracks before my PT begins. Thank you for any advice.
