This is the worst brand of sumatripan I have ever taken. Lowers the pain, but does not get rid of the pain.

Sumatriptan allows me to continue on with my day after a migraine hits. It's the best migraine med I've ever tried. I get up to 2 migraines with aura a week and now i can actually function after one starts. Yey!

I have had similar issues like others, my insurance won't allow me to get enough medication each month to cover all of my migraine headaches. This problem really needs to be remedied.

Comment:
Reduced the headache to an acceptable level. It made me feel little tired (not too bad though). I also become very sensetive to heat, I feel my hands burning just washing them in warm water. For those who get migraines, warm hands and little tiredness are nothing compared to the headache.
