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

Comment:
I have had excruciating headaches since I was a teenager, but they were not diagnosed as migraines until I was in my 40's. Once I was prescribed the Imitrex I feel like a totally different person.
