    I have always had a visual warning (aura) before headache. If I take the medication at the onset of an attack it works very well. If I take it after the headache starts, which sometimes happens if I get one when I'm asleep, It doesn't work for me. It doesn't cause any impairment if I have to take it during work.

    one to two capsules, as pain begins and within 20 minutes pain is gone. I also mix this with 5mg reglan for the nausea. careful the first couple times you take it, it can make some drowsy at first. But the relief!
