Description

For the short term treatment of acute moderate pain which is not relieved by paracetamol, ibuprofen or aspirin alone such as migraine attacks, including the symptoms of migraine headache, nausea and vomiting.

There are two types of Migraleve tablet available:

 Migraleve Pink tablets

 Migraleve Yellow tablets

They are available separately or together in one pack.

Migraleve Pink tablets contain paracetamol and codeine which eases pain and buclizine which helps relieve nausea and vomiting. The Pink tablets therefore treat all the symptoms of migraine. If taken at the first sign of a migraine, Migraleve Pink tablets can prevent an attack from developing.

Migraleve Yellow tablets contain paracetamol and codeine for the treatment of pain and relief of continuing migraine symptoms. They should always be taken after the first dose of Migraleve Pink tablets.
