I have used this med for over 40 years; it is the only med that handles my pain, quickly so that I can go on with my day. I usually get a migraine when there is a full moon.

I've tried other medications but this has worked best for me. I rarely have to take 2 doses and it goes to work extremely fast. I am a school teacher, High School, and can't afford to have a migraine keep me out of focus. I'm not drowsy, or in a zombie like state at all. I'm so glad my doctor mentioned it to me.
