I've never used it myself, but know quite a few people who have. Migranal Nasal Spray is dihydroergotamine (DHE) in nasal spray delivery formula. It's a Migraine abortive intended to stop the Migrainous process in the brain and the symptoms of a Migraine attack. It should not be used within 24 hours of a triptan medication such as Imitrex, Maxalt, Zomig, etc. 

Also, it should not be used more than two or three days in a week because it has the potential for causing medication overuse headache, aka rebound. For more on this, see Medication Overuse Headache - When the Remedy Backfires.

One other thing -- ergotamine medications should not be used if you are or suspect you may be pregnant. 

Hope this helps!
