Mary Posted March 20, 2010 Report Share Posted March 20, 2010 I have always suffered from migraines and headaches. In South Africa I would get a "migraine cocktail" from the pharmacist, it usually helped, and if it didn't, I would go to my GP who would give me a voltaren and stematil injection which worked very well - I would go home and feel fine after an hour. I have had a headache for 4 days now, have taken aspirin, syndol and tramadol (prescription tablets given to me by a GP here), nothing has worked, and in desperation I went to the Joondalup After Hours GP this afternoon who told me that they don't do voltaren and stematil injections. Can anyone tell me about a treatment available in Australia that works for migraines? (the GP in Joondalup prescribed Panadeine Forte which I'm sure is an over the counter medicine and I just KNOW that's not going to help!)Also can anyone tell me what the "migraine cocktail" in SA is made up of? I know there is a Migril, a Dixarit, and a Syndol, but I don't know what else. There are 5 tablets altogether. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
