Hello. i am a 51 years old lady having migraine for the last 18 years. One year back i had a hysterectomy(both the ovaries in tact) and since then i had migraines with ibs regularly. Vasograin and alprax are helpful to some extent, what are the side effects of these medicines.

Welcome to HCM.
Alprax contains alprazolam.
There is development of drug dependency after taking long time.
Withdrawal and rebound symptoms commonly occur with alprax so you shoul not stop the alprax at a time,gradual reduction in dosage to minimize withdrawal effects when discontinuing.
Vasograin contains ergotamine.
There is no significant side effect for taking short time.
After taking long time,there might be development of numbness and tingling of the fingers and toes, muscle pain in the extremities, weakness in the legs because of it's vasoconsrictor effect.
Now a days, more safe molecules are avaiulable.
Ask your doctor.
