Hi Arun,

I understand your concern.

Vasograin is a good medicine to take to terminate an acute attack of vascular or cluster headache. The side effects of the drug are minimal like nausea, vomiting, Muscle cramps, stiffness, tiredness, Numbness and tingling of extremities.

Potentially fatal complications are severe peripheral vasoconstriction and vascular occlusions.

The ways to overcome it is by avoiding the trigger. Keep yourself protected with comfortable clothes when you go out in air, avoid direct sunlight, and use effective sunscreen. In addition, you should try relaxation techniques like yoga and meditation.

Hope this helps.

Hello Arun,
Welcome to HCM,
I have read your query, and as per your complaints you seem to be having migrainous headaches. Vasograin tablet contains ergotamine as an active, it produces its therapeutic effects by constricting the dilated cranial vessel. Common side effects seen with it are muscle cramps, stiffness, tiredness. Numbness and tingling of extremities, nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea. Overdose causes ergotism consisting of hypotension and gangrene of extremities, anginal pain and transient tachycardia or bradycardia. Alternate medications you can search from other search engines. Thanks
