This combination medication is used to relieve tension and migraine headaches. Acetaminophen helps to decrease the pain from the headache. Isometheptene helps to narrow the widened blood vessels in the head. Headache pain can be caused by these widened blood vessels. Dichloralphenazone helps to relax the body.

How to use Epidrin Oral Take this medication by mouth with or without food as directed by your doctor.

Dosage is based on your medical condition and response to therapy.

For migraine headaches, take at the first sign of the headache as directed by your doctor. Then you will usually take 1 capsule every hour as needed until the headache is relieved, or take as directed by your doctor. Do not take more than 5 capsules in a 12-hour period.
