I just took my first pill ever about 4 hours fell asleep and just woke up. Headache is about half gone but I can feel it coming back so I just took another one. When I woke up from the nap my legs felt really tired and my hands where clenched into fists and it was kinda painful to get them to unlock. We will see what happens after this second dose.

I began taking this medication to treat migraines and bad headaches. No over the counter medication has ever worked for me so it has been amazing to find something that can give me relief after years of suffering! If I take 100mg at onset, I have a 90% success rate.

The only side effect I have had has been strong leg and arm fatigue the next day after taking Sumatriptan. The headache has been wiped out within 1 hour after taking medication.
