Hi,

The contents of both Caffox and Cafergot tablets are the same. Both contain caffeine 100 mg and ergotamine tartrate 1 mg. So both are the same medicines with different brand names. You can expect the same benefit with Caffox that you had with Cafergot. The dosage and precautions are also the same. This will help in reducing the pain once an episode of migraine has started. However, these cannot prevent the occurrence of another attack and for that there are other medicines like amitryptiline, propranolol etc. You can discuss these with your doctor so that the number and intensity of attacks also falls.

Hope this helps you. Best wishes.
