Comment:

I use the Sumavel DosePro needle-free injector and it is a great med! IBecause my migraines come on fast or I wake up with them and the fact that they cause severe nausea, I can't take pills. This unit is easy to use and I can start to feel it working within about 15 minutes and feel major relief within 2 hours. I don't like needles, so the design is great! Easy and the meds are injected ... Show Full Comment

Hurts just briefly, but was amazed at how fast my headache and vomiting were gone - in just under 10 minutes after having both all day. Life saver.
