    Quite honestly, I don't know how well this medication would have worked on my migraines. I took it for ten days and didn't get a migraine. During that time I was a catatonic. I couldn't exercise, have sex, or do much of anything. I am now on Topamax and it appears to be working with minimal side effects.
