Comment:
50 year old male, have had migraines for about 10 years now. Chronic neck and upper back pain too. Axert works the best of all the triptans I have taken (Frova, Zomig, Immitrex, etc.). Works within one hour on almost all occasions, and with little to no side effects. Insurance company is telling me I need to try generic sumatriptan or naratriptan now or else I will have to pay out of own pocket ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I use to have chronic migraines without taking prescription medications. I got to the point of severe vomiting and could not function, my day was over. But after taking this medication my migraines are controlled. Yet no medication is 100% effective, axert has certainly saved me from the dreadful days of pain.

Comment:
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.
