If you are currently using any of these medications listed above, tell your doctor or pharmacist before starting this medication.
Before using this medication, tell your doctor or pharmacist of all prescription and nonprescription/herbal products you may use, especially: certain beta blockers (e.g., propranolol), dopamine, drugs affecting liver enzymes that remove ergotamine from your body (such as fluoxetine, fluvoxamine, metronidazole, nefazodone, zileuton), nicotine (e.g., nicotine gum, nicotine patches), nitrates (e.g., isosorbide, nitroglycerin), other ergot alkaloids (e.g., methysergide).
If you also take "triptan" migraine drugs (e.g., sumatriptan, rizatriptan), you will need to separate your "triptan" dose from your dose of this medication to reduce the risk of serious side effects. Ask your doctor how long you should wait between your doses of these drugs.
