Migranal Dosing

How to Take Migranal

Doses of Migranal work differently in different people. The dose should therefore be made on an individual basis, weighing the possible benefit of a higher dose with possible side effect risks.

Keep a migraine journal of what doses of Migranal you are taking when you experience a migraine. This will help you know if the medicine is working for you at the dose you are taking and can help you be prepared to talk about how well the drug works during your visits to your doctor.
