This is the first time I've taken this medication. It worked in under 30 minutes. I've not taken anything that has relieve my headaches so quickly. I became a little dizzy and groggy so the next time I take it, I will lie down. I'm excited about it!

Usually within a half hour my migraine starts to go away. This med only last about 8 - 10 hrs then it comes back again. My migraines usually last 3-4 days so I do need to be careful in taking another pill too soon or I feel like I'm OD'ing but wish it would last more like 12-24 hrs.
