    I have suffered from migraines since I was 12 years old. 13 years ago Dr. gave me Imitrex injections and then nasal sprays. The pills don't work for me as I generally throw them up. Imitrex has given me my life back. I do try not to use it unless it is a full blown migraine I wake up with, as there is a rebound effect to the medication.
