aspirin and metoclopramide (Reglan) for migraines

More physicians are prescribing aspirin and metoclopramide (Reglan) for an alternative to sumatriptan (Imitrex).

The combination also seems to have fewer side effects. Metoclopramide causes a little drowsiness...but sumatriptan is more likely to cause nausea...fatigue...weakness.
