Midrid Capsules

Midrid Capsules treat migraines and throbbing headaches in adults. They contains two active ingredients to relieve the pain and stop the migraine:
  • Paracetamol: an analgesic (painkiller) to relieve the pain.
  • Isometheptene Mucate: the throbbing pain sometimes felt during a migraine is linked to swollen blood vessels (vasodilation) in the head, so this ingredient returns the blood vessels to normal to stop the migraine.


For adults only:
  • If you have any signs that you are going to get a migraine, take the initial dose of Midrid Capsules as soon as you get these warning signs. You may be able to prevent it getting to the

  • Swallow two capsules of Midrid Capsules with a drink of water as soon as you know you are getting a migraine. If you still have your migraine an hour later, take another capsule.
  • Continue taking a capsule every hour until your migraine has gone, up to a maximum of five capsules in 12 hours.
  • If you still have a migraine 12 hours after you started taking Midrid Capsules, you can take one more course of treatment. That is, two capsules to start with followed by one capsule every hour, if needed, up to a maximum of five capsules.
  • After this, you should ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice.
