Migraine is a primary headache disorder characterized by moderate to severe recurrent headaches. We describe the case of a 33-year-old male who had been using vasograin tablets in dose of 2 to 3 tablets per day for a period of 16 years without any regular medical advice. In the absence of dose, he experienced various physical and psychological withdrawal symptoms, which were similar to migraine. Patient was managed medically with substitution and supportive therapy. Clinical importance of such cases in medical practice is discussed.
