Calcium antagonists are widely used in the treatment of migraine in other countries, but are not licensed in the UK for migraine.

Flunarizine is probably the most effective, but it is not available in the UK. Verapamil is an alternative (1).

In general, calcium antagonists may decrease the frequency of attacks but have little effect on their severity.
