This medication did not relieve my headace at all. Instead it made my neck and shoulders hurt horribly. So on top of my migrane, I had pain in my neck and shoulders that wouldn't go away.

I experienced some of the rare side effects, such as neck and jaw tightness with throat discomfort and had little relief of migraine pain.

Started out with the 50 mlg tablets had to swith to the 100 mlg after 6 months. The drugs works everytime. Only side effect is a tightening and tingling of my face and some moderate joint pain that lasts for about 45 min. Even with good drug coverage this medicine is very expensive and I frequently run out before the insurance will cover more.

This did almost nothing for me. I have since switched to the nasal spray and I believe it works better for me.

I suffer from numerous migraines a week and this drug is THE ONLY one that releves the pain. The downside is that it is expensive when you have to pay for it out of pocket but the benefits outweigh the pain (in your head & wallet!)
