Although this combination was no more effective than use of an oral triptan (such as Relpax, Maxalt or Imitrex), the option may be useful for migraineurs who cannot use triptans or for whom their cost is prohibitive (none are currently available in generic form). These migraineurs may be able to achieve a similar level of pain relief by using this combination of drugs, which are available in more affordable generic versions.
Reglan is often prescribed to treat the nausea and vomiting commonly experienced by migraineurs. Before using it in any way other than you have been directed you should discuss it with your doctor.
