I have suffered sever pressure headaches for several years. Advil and Tylenol worked to relive pain but after 6 years it quit working. I turned to the Doctors that gave me this drug. It would instantly take the migraine away but would come back twice as worse within a few hours. I would have to take up to 5 a day to make it through each day.

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.
