  • Cafergot is a combination of 2 vasoconstrictors. It works by constricting blood vessels in the lining of the brain, which helps to decrease the pain from migraine headaches.
  • Indications:  Preventing and treating certain kinds of headaches (eg, migraines, migraine variants, “histaminic cephalalgia”).

 

 

Posology: Use Cafergot suppositories at the first sign of a headache.

  • If the initial dose does not relieve your headache, an additional dose may be needed according to your doctor’s instructions. Do not use a dose of Cafergot suppositories within 1 hour of your last dose.
  • Do not use more than 2 suppositories for a single migraine headache or more than 5 suppositories during any 7-day period without first checking with your doctor

  • The mechanism of action of Ludiomil is not precisely known. It does not act primarily by stimulation of the central nervous system and is not a monoamine oxidase inhibitor. The postulated mechanism of Ludiomil is that it acts primarily by potentiation of central adrenergic synapses by blocking reuptake of norepinephrine at nerve endings. This pharmacologic action is thought to be responsible for the drug’s antidepressant and anxiolytic effects.
  • Ludiomil is indicated for the treatment of depressive illness in patients with depressive neurosis (dysthymic disorder) and manic-depressive illness, depressed type (major depressive disorder). Ludiomil is also effective for the relief of anxiety associated with depression.
  • An initial dosage of 75 mg daily is suggested for outpatients with mild-to-moderate depression. However, in some patients, particularly the elderly, an initial dosage of 25 mg daily may be used. Because of the long half-life of Ludiomil, the initial dosage should be maintained for two weeks
