I have been suffering for over 41 years with migraines, and this is the only thing that works for me.

I began taking this medication to treat migraines and bad headaches.

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.

This works for me but when I take it I have a problem with the effects. I don't get the migraine but my vision is still darkened and I feel like a weight is being placed on top of me and I get tired. But no headache
