Hi Carl
Thanks for the info. I think Ergodryl may be the same as Ercaf (I'm in Australia so maybe different name). Ergodryl is Ergotamine & Caffiene so sounds like it could be. I am supposed to take 1 tablet (1mg)at the onset of a HA & then another after 1/2 an hour. It seems to be OK if I take it during the day but takes about 1/2 hour to work. So is it the med or is the HA finished on its own accord. During the night I find it doesnt work at all, probably because the HA is already full on. I have been having alot of success with o2 so far. I have upped this to 10 litres for about 10-15 min and found it great. My best friend during these times is Tiger Balm and ice or a hot wheat pillow, ice preferably. Only problem is I now have a scabby forehead from the ice etc but that will clear up shortly.
Thanks, Wayne
