This combination medication is used to treat or prevent certain types of headaches (vascular headaches including migraine and cluster headaches). Headache pain can sometimes be caused by widened blood vessels in the head. Ergotamine works by narrowing these widened blood vessels. Caffeine increases the absorption of ergotamine and also narrows widened blood vessels.
Cafergot has rarely caused a serious lack of blood flow to the arms/hands, or to the feet, or to the brain, which could cause a stroke. The risk is increased when Cafergot is taken with other drugs that can affect the removal of ergotamine from your body. Examples include boceprevir, mifepristone, telaprevir, telithromycin, certain antidepressants (such as nefazodone), azole antifungals (such as ketoconazole, itraconazole), cobicistat, macrolide antibiotics (such as clarithromycin, erythromycin, troleandomycin), HIV protease inhibitors (such as ritonavir, nelfinavir, indinavir), HIV NNRTIs (such as delavirdine), SSRIs (such as fluoxetine, paroxetine, fluvoxamine), among others.
How to Use Cafergot
Take Cafergot by mouth with or without food as directed by your doctor, usually 2 tablets at the first sign of headache, followed by 1 tablet every half hour until the headache is relieved. Do not take more than 6 tablets per headache attack or 10 tablets in a 7-day period. If your doctor has prescribed Cafergot to help prevent certain types of headaches (such as cluster headaches), take Cafergot exactly as directed by your doctor, usually for short-term treatment (2 to 3 weeks). The Dosage of Cafergot is based on your medical condition and response to treatment. Cafergot works best if it is taken at the first sign of the headache. If you wait until the headache has worsened, the medication may not work as well. If you have a higher risk for heart problems (see Precautions), your doctor may perform a heart exam before you start taking Cafergot. He/she may also direct you to take your first dose of Cafergot in the office/clinic to monitor for serious side effects (such as chest pain). Talk to your doctor for details. Cafergot is usually taken only as needed. It is not meant for long-term daily use. Though it helps many people, Cafergot may sometimes cause addiction. This risk may be higher if you have a substance use disorder (such as overuse of or addiction to drugs/alcohol). Take Cafergot exactly as prescribed to lower the risk of addiction. Ask your doctor or pharmacist for more details. If you are using drugs for migraine attacks on 10 or more days each month, the drugs may actually make your headaches worse (medication overuse headache). Do not use medications more often or for longer than directed. Tell your doctor if you need to use Cafergot more often, or if the medication is not working as well, or if your headaches get worse.
Before taking Cafergot, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to ergotamine or caffeine; or to other ergot alkaloids (such as dihydroergotamine); or if you have any other allergies. Cafergot may contain inactive ingredients (such as tartrazine found in some brands), which can cause allergic reactions or other problems. Talk to your pharmacist for more details. Before using Cafergot, tell your doctor or pharmacist your medical history,blood circulation problems (for example, in your legs, arms/hands, or stomach), certain types of headaches (hemiplegic or basilar migraine), heart problems (such as chest pain, irregular heartbeat, previous heart attack), kidney disease, liver disease, personal or family history of a substance use disorder (such as overuse of or addiction to drugs/alcohol), stroke or "mini-stroke" (transient ischemic attack). Certain conditions can increase your risk for heart problems. Tell your doctor if you have any of these conditions,high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, family history of heart disease, overweight, postmenopausal (women), age more than 40 years (men). Cafergot may make you dizzy. Alcohol or marijuana (cannabis) can make you more dizzy. Do not drive, use machinery, or do anything that needs alertness until you can do it safely. Limit alcoholic beverages. Talk to your doctor if you are using marijuana (cannabis). Remember that alcohol may cause headaches. Using tobacco/nicotine products while using Cafergot can increase the risk of serious side effects such as heart problems and decreased blood flow to the brain/hands/feet. Do not use tobacco while taking Cafergot. If you smoke, talk to your doctor about how to stop smoking. Before having surgery or certain medical procedures (such as a heart stress test or a procedure to restore a normal heart rhythm if you have an unusually fast heartbeat), tell your doctor or dentist that you use Cafergot and about all the products you use (including prescription drugs, nonprescription drugs, and herbal products). Cafergot must not be used during pregnancy. It may harm an unborn baby. Discuss the use of reliable forms of birth control (such as condoms, birth control pills) with your doctor. If you become pregnant or think you may be pregnant, tell your doctor right away. Cafergot passes into breast milk and may have undesirable effects on a nursing infant. Consult your doctor before breast-feeding.
Drug interactions may change how your medications work or increase your risk for serious side effects. This document does not contain all possible drug interactions. Keep a list of all the products you use (including prescription/nonprescription drugs and herbal products) and share it with your doctor and pharmacist. Do not start, stop, or change the dosage of any medicines without your doctor's approval. If you also take "triptan" migraine drugs (such as sumatriptan, rizatriptan), you will need to separate your triptan dose from your dose of Cafergot to lessen the chance of serious side effects. Ask your doctor how long you should wait between your doses of these drugs. Some products may contain caffeine or ingredients that could raise your heart rate or blood pressure. Certain beverages (such as coffee, colas, energy drinks) may also contain caffeine. Tell your pharmacist what products you are using, and ask how to use them safely (especially cough-and-cold products, diet aids, or other headache products). Cafergot may interfere with certain medical/laboratory tests (including dipyridamole-thallium imaging tests, urine catecholamine/5-HIAA levels), possibly causing false test results. Make sure laboratory personnel and all your doctors know you use Cafergot.
