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

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

Comment:

My doctor had prescribed one a day, as I usually ended up getting one every day. Now, after 10-plus years, another doctor comes along and says no one can take that many. I have never had an adverse reaction to it, ever. Finally she took it away from me alt ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I took Imitrex prior to taking Zomig. It never worked like the Zomig does. I have taken it since it first came on the market. I have been prescribed 30/mo. for probably 15 years...until recently. Now, for some reason, someone has decided nine tablets are sufficient. As stated by other reviewers, I have not found anything that works like Zomig...almost immediate relief. I have been cutting th ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
As recommended by my neurologist, I recently tried Zomig (nasal spray) for the first time instead of Migranal or Maxalt to treat a migraine. What I noticed different was that my migraine actually got worse before I had any relief of pain. By the end of the 1st hour, I finally started to feel relief but needed to take additional measures to deal with the effects of the migraine (dark room, limite ... Show Full Comment
