    My DR. put me on this medication atfer 3 visits to her office in a months time suffering with 7 to 10 spells a day. It has worked very well for me. After a week on the medication I am down to 1 spell and take only a half pill at the first ping of an attack. This medication works fast and has very few side affects.
