Pharmacological properties
The active substances of Nomigren Bosnalek act synergistically and comprehensively on migraine pain and accompanying symptoms.
Ergotamine tartrate is an ergot alkaloid that stimulates smooth muscle and causes vasoconstriction of cerebral and peripheral blood vessels, resulting in reduced cerebral edema.
Mecloxamine citrate has a mild sedative, antiemetic and antihistamine effect.
Camilofin hydrochloride acts as an antispasmodic, eliminating the initial vasospasm in the prodromal phase of a migraine attack.
Propifenazone has an analgesic effect.
Caffeine increases the absorption of ergotamine and enhances its therapeutic effect.
When taken orally, the active substances of Nomigren Bosnalek are quickly and completely absorbed from the digestive tract.

Method of application and dosage
Nomigren Bosnalek is recommended for oral use in the initial (prodromal) stages of the attack. Unless otherwise prescribed by a doctor, the drug should be used to stop a migraine attack (depending on the severity of the manifestations):

  • Severe migraine.
    1-2 tablets at the beginning of a headache attack, if necessary – another 1 tablet 30 minutes after the first and every half hour if necessary, a maximum of 4 tablets per day. It is recommended to use the drug no more than 2 times a week with an interval between doses of at least 4 days. The maximum weekly dose should not exceed 10 tablets. No more than 2 therapeutic courses for 1 month are recommended.
  • Moderate migraine.
    1 tablet at the beginning of the attack. The maximum daily dose is 4 tablets. The total weekly dose should not exceed 10 tablets.
  • Cessation and short-term prevention of cluster headache.
    For cessation and short-term prevention of seizures in patients with regular attacks.
    Apply a dose of 4-5 tablets (3-4 mg in terms of ergotamine) per day, divided into several doses, for 3 weeks. Take 30-60 minutes before the expected attack.
  • Carrying out short-term prophylaxis for patients with nocturnal attacks of pain.
    1-2 tablets (1-2 mg in terms of ergotamine) at bedtime.

Overdose should be avoided to prevent adverse reactions. To do this, it is important not to exceed the recommended maximum weekly dose of no more than 10 tablets.

Symptoms: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, weakness, feeling cold, pain, tingling or cyanosis of the extremities; convulsions; muscle numbness, tinnitus, severe headache, dizziness, chest pain, hypertension or hypotension, tachycardia, difficulty breathing, drowsiness, confusion, stupor, convulsions, shock, weak pulse.
In case of systematic (chronic) overdose of the drug, symptoms and complications associated with exposure to the components of the drug, namely ergotamine (ergotism) and / or caffeine (caffeinism) may occur.
Ergotism is defined as intense arterial vasoconstriction, with signs and symptoms of peripheral vascular ischemia of the extremities, such as numbness, tingling and pain in the extremities, cyanosis, lack of peripheral pulse and, if left untreated, can lead to gangrene. In addition, ergotism may also include signs and symptoms of vascular ischemia of other tissues (renal or cerebral vasospasm). In most cases, ergotism is associated with chronic intoxication and / or overdose. The toxic effect at a dose of ergotamine 15 mg lasts 24 hours, and at a dose of 40 mg – several days.
Caffeine can occur with high doses of caffeine (250-700 mg). Manifested by agitation or depression, anxiety, anxiety, which sometimes leads to panic, sleep disturbances, dilated pupils, incoordination, redness and dryness of the skin, strong thirst, muscle twitching, nausea, gastrointestinal disorders, arrhythmia, aggravation. Occasionally, poisoning is possible psychosis of the type of white fever (delirium). Exit from intoxication is often accompanied by throbbing headache, dizziness, heart pain, tinnitus, blurred vision, insomnia. Caffeine, like other sympathomimetics, has the potential to cause drug-induced hyperthermia.
Treatment: gastric lavage no later than 4 hours after taking the drug with activated charcoal and magnesium sulfate.
If vasoconstriction persists, vasodilators should be used, but with caution so as not to exacerbate pre-existing hypotension. Heparin or dextran can be administered intravenously to reduce the risk of thrombosis. If necessary, the patient should be warmed, but not too much. It is necessary to monitor lung ventilation, eliminate hypotension, control seizures.
If there are signs of caffeine intoxication, it is necessary to limit the use of foods, beverages and medicines containing methylxanthines. Regular coffee and carbonated drinks are replaced by decaffeinated. Patients should be informed about which foods, beverages, and medicines contain methylxanthines (caffeine). Gradual withdrawal of caffeine allows to avoid the expressed withdrawal syndrome, at a headache to appoint analgesics. Full rest is recommended.
