Syndol used to work wonders for me. I remember the panic when it was taken off the market – I had friends in similar situations who were importing them from goodness knows where at ridiculously high prices.
I probably should not admit that I bought the Syndol muscle relaxant component separately and found that it worked well with paracetamol. I am sure my GP would not have approved but I did not tell her, and it did work for me – but as with Syndol, it meant I could not drive having taken them so it was not a long-term solution.
I then went onto sumatriptan. Marvelous when it works.
