Question:
I am new to Moscow and in need of Migraine medicines, namely Fioricet/Fiorinal and Imatrex. Are they available here?? If so, how/where do I get it?? Thanks a bunch

Answer:
In the SOS Clinic we have Imigran ( Sumatriptan ) = Imatrex, and we can also source Imigran nasal spray if requested. Unfortunately Fioricet ( butalbital+acetaminophen+coffein ) and Fiorinal ( aspirin+butalbital+coffein+codein ) are not available in Moscow. We may suggest as alternatives providing your doctor approves, Panadol Extra ( paracetamol+coffein ), Saridon ( paracetamol+propiphenasone+coffein ), Pentalgin-N ( analgin+naproxen+phenobarbital+codein ), Nurofen Plus ( ibuprofen+codein ), Solpadein ( paracetamol+codein ). All of them are in ibuprofen+our pharmacy. One of these should help.
