I am 15 years old, and began getting intense migraines last year. I was hospitalized twice and put on over 20 different medications all at different times. None of these medications worked. Then my Neurologist prescribed Axert. Axert is the only medicine that will eliminate my headaches every time without fail. Axert is the go to drug for me and I highly recommend it to any migraine patient.

Usually within 30 minutes I am pain free with no side effects. I've bee forced in the past by insurance companies to try generic drugs & none of them worked. Now I'm being forced again to go generic. I get weather migraines so I can't avoid any migraine triggers. I need something that works & works quickly & that is what I get with Axert.

This was the second pill I tried before taking Frova which I have now taken for five years. I get hormonal/menstrual migraines, so mostly just once a month and once in awhile may come and go for a few days. The Axert worked for a little while (a few months)and then I began getting facial bone pain before the migraine would go away after 2 hours. The first pill I ever tried, which I cannot recall i ...
