|Title:||Pethidine is inappropriate for migraine|
|Citation:||Australian Prescriber, 1997; 20(3):71|
|Andrew A. Somogyi|
|Abstract:||In the treatment of migraine, pethidine is less efficacious than dihydroergotamine plus metoclopramide: it can aggravate nausea, there is a risk of dependence and it has a short duration of effect necessitating additional medication. Its use therefore cannot be substantiated.|
