My insurance company grams this stuff out like crack, I assume because it's so expensive. I've had frequent migraines for about 20 years now and Zomig has been the only thing that works. The only time it didn't work was when my headache was actually meningitis. Otherwise I can count on the migraine being gone within 2 hours. Depending on how far into the migraine I am when I take i ... Show Full Comment

I have had debilitating migraines since my early 20s and tried everything including Imitrex without benefit. Finally was prescribed Zomig which will knock them out in about 30 minutes.

As I have gotten older my migraines ha ... Show Full Comment

I suffered from classic migraine since I was 12. I tried all of the medications offered through the years with only some relief. In 1997 my doctor prescribed Zomig for me, and I found the magic bullet. It is the only thing that will kill a migraine in the process of happening and, for me, no lingering after affects. I still get a little of the "disorientation" you get the day after, bu ... Show Full Comment

I've taken Zomig for 20 years now - I have, on average, 21 migraine days a month. I've tried so many meds, including alternative meds, but to no avail. Zomig is the ONLY med that works really well for me with no side effects. My Doctor is only prepared to give me 12 tablets per month because, in the UK, Zomig is not licenced to be used daily. It is thought that overuse of this med causes m ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I started on this in October 2013 and would take it when I would get my monthly migraine. It worked at first, but it always made me feel nauseous with no appetite for about 8 hours, made it difficult to touch warm water, made my glands by my jaw hurt and gave me constant rebound headaches. I stopped in April 2014 and feel so much better! I'm currently on another migraine pill. This pill just d ... Show Full Comment
