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 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

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
