 5  Migraines nasal congestion Migranal nasal spray works much better for me than any triptan and the only side effect is nasal congestion. Gets rid of headaches totally about 99% of the time. F 34 1 years
2 mg 1X D
 1  Migraine have a few times a week Severe nasal congestion, nausea, muscle soreness I took this for the first time today to try something other than imatrex nasal spray which I have no side effects from. I took it at 1pm and fell asleep, woke up and was running a fever and threw up. Then at 3pm I started getting nasal congestion so bad I was gagging. Now 7pm and it's worse. F 33 1 days
1 2X D
 2  migraine vomiting, bad taste, nasal congestion I took the first dose as the box said and then again 15 minutes later. I still had a horrible taste in my mouth for hours afterward. It did cure my headache, but an hour later I was wretching my guts out. Not sure whether I would prefer the migraine or the vomiting? And my nasal passages were inflamed for the rest of the evening. F 30
 3  frequent migraines extreme muscle soreness within 12 hours of taking migranal. soon after takign migranal my headache would get really bad, but after a nap, my headaches were completely gone. However, soon after, I would experience extreme muscle soreness and stiffness. I thought it would be a one time thing, but I took Migranal atleast 10 times with the same side effects. F 24 3 months
 2  migraine I really didn't have any trouble with side effects; it just didn't work very well or very reliably. If you need quick relief, get your doctor to prescribe the injectable form,simply DHE. First, it's generic, and, therefore, cheap. Next, it starts working very quickly, and usually eradicates even a bad migraine in less than an hour. Sometimes, I have to take a second dose, but only the very worst migraines are resistant to the injectable DHE, F 40 4 years
 3  For migraine headaches No side effects to speak of. If you don't spray it properly you may have it go down your throat which does not work to alleviate the head pain. My doctor said to take a deep breath and then swallow - as I spray each nostril I close the opposite nostril and then pinch both nostrils shut with my head pointing down a bit for a few minutes. I wait 15 minutes to do the second dose. F 49 1 months
 3  migraine bitter aftertaste, nasal stuffiness marginally effective, for me triptans (Imitrex) work better, expensive per dose, use as an adjunct to other abortive meds such as triptans, norflex (muscle relaxant), and depakene (anti-convulsant) M 49 1 weeks
 2  migraines My migraines have used to give me pain on the wright side, concentrating around my eye. With migranal, my pain ceases on the wright side, but I lrst violent pain (almost every days) on my left side, my eye and my left side of my head. I do not like this feeling, it is annoying, and I do not feel migraine free Where can I read comments from other peope about migranal? F 46 3 times
 3  migraines some sleepiness but i got dizzy too at times but its all good works but tastes bad when it runs down ur throat..yuck! F 17 2 years

MIGRANAL  (DIHYDROERGOTAMINE MESYLATE):  This medication is used to treat migraine headache attacks. It helps relieve headache pain and other symptoms such as sensitivity to light or sound. Prompt treatment allows you to get back to your normal routine sooner and may decrease your need for other pain medications. This medication is not used to prevent migraines from occurring. Dihydroergotamine belongs to a class of drugs known as ergot alkaloids. It may work by narrowing the blood vessels in the brain. It may also block other pain pathways in the brain.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
