I suffer from migraines so severe that I go every 3 months for nerve blocks and botox injections. The 1st time I used this medicine for a migraine I thought I was going to die.

My first use was almost my last ! The burning sensation, taste, tearing were intolerable. On a whim, I watched the video on how to use the meds on the internet. This is not to be inhaled !!!!! I sprayed it to the side of my nose, and had almost no side effect at all ! I am so happy that I watched that video. The medicine has worked well, and now that I know how to use it, I am a fan.
