The oral tablet combination, (550 mgs. of naproxen sodium plus 10 mgs. of metoclopramide plus 1 mg. of ergotamine tartrate plus 100 mgs. of caffeine), was retrospectively studied in 63 patients who used it to abort migraine headaches. On the average, 84% of the headaches were totally aborted; minor side effects occurred in 40% of the patients, and 87% of the patients considered the combination superior to all prior treatments.
