    I have been prescribed many medications for treating the symptoms of my migraine attacks over the years. I have been wrestling with 'classic'-type migraine (with visual aura) for about a decade now. Unfortunately, they are now occurring much more frequently than when I was first diagnosed.

    I've been having migraines since I was 13 years old. Usually a good dose of Axert at early onset will make them go away. However, I recently had one that lasted a little over a week.

If the nurses pushed the medicine too fas ... Show Full Comment

    After 4 neurologist and 30 years of suffering with migraines one Dr. taught me how to inject myself with this drug. In the 14 years that I have been using it, it has never failed to relieve my headaches within a couple of hours, depending on severity. I had tried every other drug on the market up to that time, unsuccessfully. I even became dependent on opiates. I have been clean for 4 years and ... Show Full Comment
