Comment:
This is the only medicine to relieve my migraines. works everytime, usually only one pill but occasionally I have to take 2. the only sideeffect I have is dry mouth. i recommend this to anyone who has migraines and other meds aren't working for them. It is pricey, but my insurance covers most of the cost.
