2.5 MG OF THIS DRUG HAS BEEN EFFECTIVE IN RIDING ME OF A HEADACHE. THE PROBLEM IS THE RECURRENCE OF THESE HEADACHES. THEY TEND TO RECUR EVERYDAY.

I was given this drug for my migrains by the VA hospital.. I get some major debilitating headaches.. Ones that make you want to close yourself in a dark room and sleep the day away kind of headaches. I had to go to the emergency room for relief.. Nothing touched the pain... I wanted to put my head in a vice and squeeze it.. That seemed to releive some of the pain.. I had perscriptions for Methadon ... Show Full Comment

I've found it to be extremely effective...The only problem is, it makes me VERY sleepy, so I typically fall asleep, and wake up without a migraine. If I must stay awake, I get very light-headed and dizzy - do NOT take this if you're driving!

Comment:
This medication actually gives me a headache (nothing unbearable) but takes care of all the weird neurological symptoms I usually get with migraines: blind spots, numb/fuzzy extremities, trouble with word recall, etc. Side effects of Zolmitriptan seem minor but sometimes last 24 hrs: hot water makes skin prickle, mild dizziness, generally a little out-of-it.
