Customer Question
When I went to Mayo...
When I went to Mayo Clinic for rebound migraine they gave me a protocol. I took Amerge (naratriptan) and tapered off it and it took about a week. I remember some of it but would like to confirm. Please tell me the Amerge taper protocol.

I just wanted to clarify that I tapered off Amerge. The rebound was caused by ibuprofen overuse.

I'm not sure what the taper was.

There is no standard taper

it is specific to the doctor you saw

can you call the clinic?

I’m no longer a patient so they won’t give it me and I’m told it’s not in my records. Thanks for checking. Will I be charged for this?
Neurologist: Dr. Phil, MD, Medical Doctor replied 8 months ago

You are only charged if 100% satisfied
