Migraleve is the brand name of a range of migraine-relief medications made by Pfizer.

There are two variants of Migraleve: Yellow and pink, which both contain the analgesics paracetamol and codeine. The yellow variant is designed to address the symptoms of headache and discomfort, whilst the pink variant also addresses symptoms of nausea and vomiting. Recently, a third Migraleve variant was released, Migraleve Ultra, which contains sumatriptan.

The pink tablet is supposed to be taken before the yellow tablet. [1]
