    I was traveling home from an event and had a headache trying to start so I just pull out my pen and injected it into my skin and within minutes I could feel it working on my headache. Fastest of all the medicines I taken orally but not as fast as the IV at the hospital.

    Although headache was finally relieved two hrs after injection, it returned within the next 2 hours and I had to take a Sumatriptan tablet for relief. The Sumavel injection was quite painful, leaving blood and swelling. That would be worth it if it had been more effective. I was also left with overwelming weakness for several hours after dosing. Not going to try this again unless desperate -- will ... Show Full Comment

    Imitrex tablets have been my mainstay; bought this Sumavel because I was able to get the 6-dose box for only $15. Used Sumavel 90 minutes ago, so still waiting/hoping for full relief. Injection was extremely painful and bled, leaving a welt. I am experiencing much more nausea than usual since the injection, but can tell I'm already not as sensitive to light and sound as before dosing. Pain and ... Show Full Comment

    I have had severe migraines for as long as I can remember. When using Sumavel Dosepro relief from a level 8 - 10 migraine was felt in less than 20 minutes. The initial injection is painful, but not as painful as the Imitrex Injectible with a needle, and there were no side effects. I have used this medication for severe migraines for 4+ months, and each time have had the same results. I would s ... Show Full 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
