Antihypertensive

Metoprolol Tartrate (Lopressor)

Do you ever have headaches that affect your whole day? They may not go away even after lying in the dark, and you never know just how intense they are going to be. Consider Metoprolol Tartrate for relief! Although Metoprolol Tartrate can’t get rid of migraine headaches as they are happening, it’s a preventative medication that is effective at reducing the frequency, severity, and length of migraines.

Calan

If you suffer from chronic migraines, it might be worth asking your doctor about Calan. Calan works to treat migraines by blocking calcium channels and suppressing your body’s natural serotonin levels. This, in turn, restrains the constriction of blood vessels in your head that actively reduce your level of pain tolerance — meaning the muscles are relaxed instead of tensed, so you feel less pain.

While doctors may prescribe Calan to prevent migraines, they mainly use it as a treatment for high blood pressure, chest pain, and heart disorders. It is typically administered via oral film-coated tablets, but in some cases, it can be administered intravenously under a doctor’s supervision.
While our team at Nurx™ does not carry Calan, we can provide other generic antihypertensive medications to treat migraines.

Inderal

Also known by the generic name Propranolol, Inderal is a beta-blocker pill that is commonly used to treat a variety of conditions like high blood pressure, heart rhythm disorders, chest pain, angina, hypertension, and other heart or circulatory issues. Inderal can also treat heart attacks, prevent future heart attacks, and improve the survival rate after a heart attack. When it’s used to lower blood pressure, it can help prevent strokes, heart attacks, and even kidney issues. If you experience migraines, Inderal can even help prevent them and lower their severity and frequency. Though we at Nurx™ don’t offer Inderal, we do carry the antihypertensive Metoprolol Tartrate for migraine treatment.

Isoptin

Isoptin is an antihypertensive that can treat a variety of conditions including high blood pressure, severe angina (chest pain), and certain heart rhythm issues. This medication can also decrease and sometimes prevent the likelihood of experiencing angina. In some cases, Isoptin can be used to prevent migraines. A doctor may also prescribe this calcium channel blocker to help control or lower your heart rate. When you get Isoptin for these purposes, it can make it easier for you to exercise regularly. The generic form of Isoptin is Verapamil, which contains the same active ingredients and functions in the same way.

While we don’t offer Isoptin here at Nurx™, we do have other generic antihypertensive medications to treat migraines.

Propranolol

Propranolol is the generic form of several brand medications, including Inderal, InnoPran, and Propranolol HCI Intensol. It’s a type of beta-blocking medication that treats a variety of heart and circulation problems, including chest pain (angina), high blood pressure, irregular heartbeat, and other circulation problems. Propranolol is also successful in treating and preventing heart attacks, and it’s effective for reducing the frequency and severity of migraines.
