Comment:
Have taken for 20 yrs. Back then, a pharmacist told me it had the fewest side effects, but works slower, taking an hour to feel better. What I've learned is that I can take less than the whole pill of 2.5 mg. It's always been safe for me to do this. What also is important is to act quickly when a migraine starts, and then taking a small amount works. To get some relief in 10-15 minutes, i ... Show Full Comment
