    The injection pen is a bit tricky, but I used it in my stomach and it didn't hurt much more than a bee sting. Although my headache went away, I had a bad reaction to the drug which made me feel confused and basically "out of it." I haven't tried it since.

    Air injection certainly hurts; however, this is the fastest working triptan I've ever tried (out of seven or so), and it is well worth the injection pain, and short-duration nausea and head/chest tingly-ness.
