OK...so I just recently found out that if I take my Imitrex nasal spray, along with 2 Aleve that the results are amazing! I used to have migraines that lasted 8-10 hours, and now they are gone within about an hour!

My eight year old son was given this medication after developing migraines. He was hesitant at first due to the nostril application but after trying it he was so excited because it worked within five minutes. I think it's great for children who may find migraines scary and confusing.

Comment:
This has been a miracle for me. After years of suffering migraines, it was finally prescribed. My migraines are accompanied by severe nausea and the nasal spray allows the medicine to stay put. It works for me in 15-20 minutes. There have been rare occasions that it did not work but I now have a different script to use if that is the case. I would not recommend taking more than 1 dose in a day ... Show Full Comment
