Reply to Dr. Arun Phophalia's Post: i have been prescribed midrin which is useless basically no effect on me for headaches
trazodone and ambien for sleep which i take all 3 as needed if the demerol works should i take these other meds or just the demerol will it help me sleep


Demerol alone should be able to take care of your headache and sleep. Ambien and trazodone should be avoided with demerol. Since midrin is not effective, you should consult your physician for alternative medication for your migraine headaches.
