Normally using Egomar for my CH's, when I ran out, without my reading glasses I purchased the new Motrin for Migranes.

Fortunately I got my glasses on before another headache. Those pills are nothing more than 200mg of ibuprofen!!!

Turns out that is exactly the same as their Motrin IB pills, Advil, and the Advil for Migranes.

How can the medical companies re-package ibuprofen, calling it a migrane solution - which it isn't for sure? Hopefully it will not make it on the market long enough to cause a lot of needless suffering.

Back to the Ergomar, and the breathing of extremely cold air for 15 minutes for my CH's. (I have a handy ice cream maker frozen bucket I keep in the freezer, to provide the cold air.)
