Suffered with migraine headaches for years! Often times they would last for days and I would vomit numerous times. This drug is wonderful! I've used it now for about 5 years and I wouldn't be caught without having it on hand/in my purse. As I age, the headaches are becoming fewer - the only advantage I've found so far about growing older!

I have used this drug for about one year now, it almost always help. Sometimes I may need two (must wait two hours between tablets) but one if taken early on will stop the migraine, with no side effects, sometimes two may cause mild side effects. For me, this this medication is a great help untill I used it a migraine would knock me out for hours.

This medicine is back-up when my Maxalt doesn't work fr a migraine. When I took it, it helped ease the pain very quickly. I would recommend it.
