Mechanism Of Action and Pharmacodynamic Effects
The anti-migraine activity of dihydroergotamine is believed to be due to its high affinity binding to serotonin 5-HT1D receptors on intracranial blood vessels (causes vasoconstriction and headache relief) and on sensory nerve endings of the trigeminal system (inhibits release of pro-inflammatory neuropeptides)
