I've used these with great sucess for over 10 years. Highly recommend

I was given the Oral version from my doctor and found it to upset my stomach more the relieve any migraine symptoms. after taking the pen at 1/4 the dosage, I had no stomachaches. I did experience very warm sensations in all of my muscles (burning sensations) but compared to the migraine they were negligible and a welcome relief.
