    I have be given many different combination of medications from other pain meds., prednisone, topamax,neurontin, mirgarin prevntative, this seems to be the only mediction that has helped me through the years deal with problems with migrains. I is not always perfect, but it has helped more that anything else I have tried.

    I was given this in order to manage the pain of frequent migraines. To be honest, I felt no difference after taking it than before taking it. Even when taking two tablets I felt no difference. Though my past experience with all migraine medications has been unsuccessful, having none to date that have ever given any relief.
