DHE IV should be given every 8 hours for about 3 days to break a cycle. In my experience, usually one IV push won't do it. Then you can take the injections or the spray every 8 hours at home (after the 3 days of IVs). It should keep the pain away until the cycle is broken.
Cafagot is in the ergotomine family (or Ercaf pills).
Imitrex cannot be taken with ergotomines. You have to wait 24 hours in between. Be careful NOT to mix these two meds.
Hope this helps.
