I have suffered from extreme migraines since the sixth (11 years old) grade. They have worsened over time. I am now 19. My doctor first prescribed me the 100 mg pills and later the injections to give myself at onset of migraine. If I provide myself with the injection and and anti-inflamatory i am prescribed, I am 9/10 times in great shape and the migraine is gone within half of an hour. I swear by ... Show Full Comment
