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.

This treatment has been very effective for my son's migraines. It almost instantly gives him relief for his migraine headaches. Sometimes the side affects include, some minor aches here and there, and constant sneezing. Other than that it seems OK!

I have suffered migraine headaches since '84. I am on a regiment of preventive RX's but when a migraine strikes & OTC medication does not work, ZOMIG is the only thing that I have found effective to get rid of the pain. I have not experienced negative side effects, only relief. Usually a 2.5 dosage will take care of the headache, sometimes I have had to take one more dosage. Migrai ... Show Full Comment

After being diagnosed, I was first given Imetrex with bad side effects. We decided to try Zomig. I worked wonders. I usually take one 5mg tablet (doesn't matter when during migraine) and it's usually gone in an hour. Makes me tired, sometimes maked migraine worse before better, but then completely gone. I now have a migraine for over 2 weeks now, Zomig has been ineffective, as well as ... Show Full Comment
