This pill has changed my life!! It does work best right at the onset of the migraine-wipes it right out.

I have had migraines for years, usually just one or two a month, but they were terrible. My doctor prescribed me Imitrex and it wipes out the migraine IF I take it soon enough. Always carry these with you! When Imitrex went to generic form I was so relieved, but with the generic I have noticed I get dizzy sensations after taking it for about the next 12 hours. Not too bad, and it's much be ... Show Full Comment
