I have had migraines (hormone related) for many years. They have worsened since age 30 (I'm 52). Usually I take Fioricet AND Frova - and the two together make it so I can function. With my hormone levels going a little crazy, I have been going through my meds quickly. Doc gave me samples of Cambia to try - but - it doesn't help my headaches at all. It does make my misc. aches go away (shou ... Show Full Comment

This medication has changed my life. I don't fear my migraines anymore, which I have been getting since childhood. They cause severe pain. If I take Cambia and Axert together with the aura, the pain never comes or is very minimal. I used to take Axert alone which worked ok but not nearly as well. Now if I get a migraine at work, I just need to wait for the aura to pass then I can continue with ... Show Full Comment

I've had migraines since I was a child. Ive been taking imitrex for 13 years but recently I've been having migraines every other day for the past few months. My new neurologist recommended I try cambia because I was getting rebound headaches from taking too much imitrex. For a minor headache it will get rid or minimize it. For bed bound migraines it sometimes takes the edge off but never r ... Show Full Comment

I think this works better than almost any other treatment. I have had migraine for 30 years. I am only 40 though. I don't know what others are doing that it doesn't work. When I used to get a bad migraine it woul last all day even few days. Now I can at least function to take care of my little boys

Comment:
This works BEST without food, and it is the only thing I have found to take that horrible pain out of my neck. I also take a triptan for rescue, but Cambia works if you haven't been able to catch that migraine in time. It's very expensive and it's not well known. GET OUT THERE AND PROMOTE THE MEDICATION DRUG REPS! It's not a controlled substance. :-) I've never had medication ... Show Full Comment
