    This absolutely got rid of my headaches. The reason I give it a 3-star satisfaction rating is because of the resulting side effects (for me anyway). My migraines hit in the middle of the night, so when I take this med it's usually a couple hours before I get up for the day. When drinking my morning coffee, it feels like it's scalding as it goes down my throat (and believe me- my morning j ... Show Full Comment

    Works very strangely as it makes all my aura symptoms come at once which is horrible for about 10 minutes but after that I'm totally fine although really drowsy so still need to sleep all day. Still get migraine hangovers so feel off for a few days. Overall it's a million times better than other medication I've tried

    It definitely works for me but it makes me so dizzy and slow and I almost feel like a zombie. If I can lay in a dark room and sleep it off I feel that it works best.

Initially I thought this was a wonder drug, I could finally get some relief and feel like a normal person. However, a few months in I realized about 20-24 hours after taking the pill I was getting a rebound migraine. This began a vicious cycle. Only allowed 10 pills a month and having to ta ...
