    This drug has changed my life. Before if I felt a migraine coming on I'd start getting anxiety wondering how bad it would be. I've tried many different meds and this one is truly a miracle. If I got a migraine before I'd have to call in sick to work or go home and lay down. Now I just take the injection and 15-30 mins later, I'm good. It is amazing. The injection does hurt but it&# ...

    I don't get migraines very often but when I do they are very debilitating. I get the classic migraine-aura first, then headache pain, sensitivity to light/sound, nausea/vomiting. I tried numerous oral medications and nasal medications..this is the first and only medication to help. It's amazing! Yes the injection is painful and scary..but it's so worth it to avoid the pain of a migrain ... Show Full Comment

    I have had severe migraines for over 30 years and have tried every treatment and new medication that comes out. The Sumavel DosePro is the best that I have found to help relieve the migraine. Now for the negative. The delivery system is terrible. I have at least a 30-40% failure rate which is very upsetting when you are in pain and the medicine you have with you doesn't work. It's espe ... Show Full Comment

    Seriously, this drug is a miracle drug. I take it for both migraines (Common and classic) and the occasional cluster headache. Although the initial shot stings like a bee (USE ICE BEFOREHAND), the effectiveness of this drug and the time it takes to work is amazing. After injecting the drug either in your thigh or stomach, your head will have a pins and needles feeling (not painful, just strang ... Show Full Comment

    I've had migraines for over 40 years and this is the first medication that really works for me. The headache pain is heightened right after dosing and I have really bad neck pain and tightening. But in about 45 mins it's gone completely and I can resume normal activities.
