Here in canda (eh!) we only get ergotamine as cafergot (ergotamine and caffine). I use cafergot for the Ch that the O2 doesn't stop quickly, or daytime when I'm away from the O2 tank.

After a suggeston from BobP, I'm trying a cafergot before bedtime as a preventative, seems to work some nights, but nothing works every night!.

The link below will take you to infor on ergotamine

use this link for the sub-lingual instructions.

(ya gotta copy and paste, I haven't figured out this URL stuff yet)

I take a cafergot, crush it with my teeth and slide in under the tounge, it disolves quickly but tastes like crap.

Then, I get back on the O2...stops most of my CH.

Good luck

Doug Wright
