    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.

    I have been taking this drug for about 15yrs in 50mg doses. It has never let me down. My migraines are not as severe as others experience. I never have nausea or loss of vision. Mine consist of a severe pain running from the back of my neck over the top of my head to my brow - always on one side only.
