    Comment:
    Treximet is one of the few medications that have alleviated my migraines (Relpax also worked for years, until it stopped working as well). I experience only light side-effects (burn in jaw the first couple chews after taking it, sensitivity to hot water, feelings of weakness) that have seemed to decrease over the years. I'm not even sure if the weakness and sleepiness are from Treximet or just ... Show Full Comment

    Migraines are usually triggered by changes in weather. Treximet usually works in an hour or two. The cost of Treximet has doubled for me in the last two years. As a Tier 3 drug my insurance requires me to pay 30% of the cost. Two years ago I paid $460 for 27 pills. This month it is costing me $900. Treximet is the only thing that works for me. I used Imitrex until I had an asthma attack.

    I had some pretty uncomfortable side effects from the med. The first time I took this medication, I had a migraine for over 48 hours, so I was not sure if what I was feeling was due to the medication. The side effects were a feeling of being overheated, and tightness from the back of my neck through my jaw and up through the top of my head. It did stop my migraine after about an hour and a half ... Show Full Comment

    I have had this medication since I turned 50. It is the only thing that works for me.I have had migraines for 30 years. I took Imitrex and it worked well for me.But my doctor said after 50 you should not use Imitrex. That is when she switched me to Treximet. It has been a blessing for me. With my migraines I get nausea, vomiting, fatigue, light bothers me. My eyesight goes out in one eye etc.. Th ... Show Full Comment
