    I've had miagraines for quite a number of years and Relpax has been helpful to me, not just because of the fact that it get helps my headaches,but because if I didn't have it I would be in trouble. I have a siezure disorder and sometime my headaches have actually caused my siezusres to occur.

    This is a good drug but with me it only works about 75% of the time. It also makes me drowsy and I feel intense pressure in my head!!!

    Relpax works great at the start of a migraine. the only issue is that it is so expensive. I have great health insurance and pay $50 co-pay for 6 pills a month.

I already pay $90 a month in meds & this on top of it is way too Much! But it feels good to be able to ... Show Full Comment
