Migraine Information Leaflet: Dihydroergotamine
Dihydroergotamine is one of a group of medicines called ergot alkaloids. It is effective in the treatment of migraine, but it is not widely prescribed because it can cause side effects and has to be given by injection. Dihydroergotamine is not licensed in the UK but your specialist may prescribe this as a preventative treatment option for migraine.
The leaflet is available as a PDF download, or we can print and post an A5 leaflet for you.
