This medicine works great for me and is such a relief! I take one 100 mg tablet and it can almost always completely eliminate the migraine (even when it is full on). Rarely I will take two. It usually takes a while to start working (30-45 min). I will feel no relief at all for the first 30 minutes then I start to feel a tightness in my jaw.

This pill has changed my life!! It does work best right at the onset of the migraine-wipes it right out. I do have side effects-makes me very tired for a couple of hours and I have tightening of my jaw and some muscle tightening....also can not touch hot water, it feels like it is burning me. It is so much better than the brutal hell headaches I used to get that would last for days!
