    I have used this medication since it's FDA approval. It has been a true God send for me. I have no idea what I would have done without it. Certainly I would have not been able to continue my employment throught to retirement.

    I was switched to this about 9 months ago, it's much more effective than the old medication. However, it makes me extremely tired and have to urinate a lot during the day after I take it. I also get tingling in my jaw and weird sensations in my hands/feet if they get too cold or hot, but I can live with that over a migraine.

    I have been experiencing migraines for 12 years and I was never diagnosed until last summer. My doctor then put me on this medication. My only complaint is that I get severe nausea 45 minutes after taking the drug. Otherwise, the migraines are guaranteed to go away! I'm so glad I found an end to my suffering!

    after being on maxalt and midrin which was taken off the market, this is phenomenal! i have constant light sensitivity with almost an impending headache at all times. It helped with the multiple areas of pain for my migraines.
