Hey everyone, I just wanted to share with you my experience with this medicine called DHE.
D.H.E. 45® (dihydroergotamine mesylate) Injection, USP is indicated for the acute treatment of migraine headaches with or without aura and the acute treatment of cluster headache
This medicine helped significantly since my ES is causing migraine type pain and pain in the eyes. DHE is prescribed for severe migraine and cluster headaches and it did help with that aspect, even though I still have a lot of other problems going on. It really helped to separate my migraine pain my ES pain to help see what was left.
This medicine is considered as potentially dangerous and it comes with a load of warnings. It gave me a lot of nausea and I was only able to take this medicine in a hospital setting. I stayed 5 days with a constant IV drip.
I figured this might help someone since ES can cause lots of migraine type pain or in my case a huge unremitting migraine. I have also read about DHE being a vasoconstrictor which might help someone with artery involvement, as well.
