I have been using this medication for over 25 yrs, and it has saved me. I could not use a whole one. It made me vomit. you need to learn how to cut it in pieces and experiment.

Absolutely the best medicine ever for a migraine headache. I have used it for over 34 yrs. It works in about 20 minutes and I only have to use 1/2 suppository (no other medicine) besides predisone works for me. I don't know how I would live without it.Please Please Please keep making it !!!!

Took my first migergot suppository today. I experienced 1 to 2 hours of vomiting and nausea...Dreadful! I did take zofran 2 doses and 1/2 seroquel. The medication did relieve the pain after 2 hours. It burned when inserted. I inject with DHE (15 years) and am very tired of the pain and prep of using the syringe. I thought next migraine I may take only half the suppository.
