Side Effects
I don't experience any negative side effects, compared to other migraine meds I've taken. I feel relaxed, partly due to the effectiveness.

Additional Thoughts
This generic version of Midrin is almost the only affordable migraine medication available, and it was very difficult when they pulled it to lower the Acetaminophen dose, but I'm glad it's back.

Age: 29
Location: Dalton, GA
Time Taken: 7 months

Reason: Migraine Onset Releaf Date: 26 May 2009
Side Effects
Rash and Itching on torso. Dermatologist report that it was a contact dermatitis and after several weeks for changing everything and even contacting my Neurologist, no one pointed out that it could be Isometh-D-Chloralphene-Apap. The only cream that gave me relief was Clobetasol Propionate Cream USP 0.05% given to me by my GP. This was a horrible experience and went on for months. I hope this information reached someone who is looking for answers just as I was.

Additional Thoughts
It is a great RX but the side effects are not worth the results. At least with a migraine you you do not look like a monkey in public and you get to sleep.
