Works well to dispate the pain but I find that it only works for about 12 hrs. and my pain returns.

I do not recommend driving till you know your reaction.

Comment:
I was diagnosed with migraines in my mid-thirties and I am 55 now. Imitrex is the miracle drug of the century in my opinion. The only time I am debilitated by a headache is when I wake up in the morning and the headache has progressed too far for Imitrex to work. That happens once-twice a year.
