Comment:
I've had migraine headache for half my life and tried just about every drug I could for them. Treximet is the only drug that help eliminate the migraine. I had used Imitrex (semi-successfully) before but the dizziness and hot flashes were too much to take. With Treximet, there are a couple "rules" you should follow to get the best benefit.
