Given after an abortion. Has given me painful cramps each time that I have to take ibuprofen with which seems like it would negate the effects. I was told this medicine would both help with the uterus to control bleeding and the cervix to close back up so it seems like I need it but it's not a nice medicine to take.

I have been on this medication since 1988 to treat migraine. It was very effective for me and although as I get older I do not need to take it as often, it was a lifesaver for me. I took it daily for many years.

I am using methergine for migraine. Combined with Motrin 600 mg trhee times a day it has been effective in cutting my migraine rate in half from ~12/month to 5-6/month. I am concerned about on-line comments of long term effects of atrery hardening.

Prescribed to me after I had a miscarriage and I had blood in my uterus left from passing the pregnancy. Made me dizzy and slight cramps but not enough to take pain medicine.

Comment from: Sharon1E@aol.com, 45-54 on Treatment for 6 months - 1 year (Patient) Published: January 11

I was prescribed this medication for Head Pain Treatment. However, after being on it for 6 months, I must go off it for month. At that time, I must have a chest x-ray, MRI of the abdomen and echo. This scares me that there could be some serious side effects to this medication if this has to be done every six months.

Following a miscarraige and D&C, I was prescribed this once every 4 hours. I took 3 pills within 1 day and had a severe reaction. I woke up catatonic and could not move for 2 1/2 days. Would have called 911 but I could not move or call for help. I thought I was going to die!!!!
