    I have had migraines for years. I do the steroid treatments and this spray is a great back-up to sleep at night. My migraines come in the early morning hours.It will help you sleep and block out pain. Don't plan on doing anything for 3-4 hours after using spray.

I moved to Missouri and enrolled in the VA health care and the Doctor was happy with this result. He continued the prescription nearly 2 years, and I moved to Nebraska. The VA is not like the one I went to ... Show Full Comment
