Comment:
Since triptans are abortants, it is important to take the medication when you feel a migraine coming on. Sometimes I take it later than I probably should, which may account for the times when it doesn't help much. Usually one dose will knock my migraine down to a dull roar, so at least I can function.

This is my first time trying Amerge. Now, 1 hour after 2nd dose, pain=9. Eye pain and throbbing, sensitivity to light and sound are all unchanged. Not going to take any further doses. It did not work at all for me personally. Will call my Doctor in the morning and hopefully try something else.

Comment:
My neurologist prescribed this med to me for my "monthly migraines". It did not do anything to take away the pain and it gave me a side effect of making me feel like I was having something similar to a hotflash. Neuro said it may not work everytime so I will try it for one more month, but if it does not work again and side effect continues I will not take this medication again.
