I have chronic migraines almost every day. I have botox shots every 12 weeks, on sumatriptan pills and now this embrace shot. I was a bit scared to take the shot, but I was having a bad episode that was in the third day and I couldn't do anything. Nothing helped so the next morning I injected tge shot in my arm. I will say it stings a little, but within about thirty minutes I startedstarted ...

My neurologist prescribed Zembrace because I wanted a faster-acting triptan. I was tired of waiting up to an hour for Maxalt and others to work while I writhed in pain. I administered Zembrace in my arm (instructions show you can also do it in your leg). It stung like a bee, adding more pain to my already pain-addled body. I felt instantly fatigued like I got the wind knocked out of me and needed ...

This medicine has very very helpful. Any migraine I have had it has taken away all of mine so far within 2-3 hours.

Worst drug ever - did NOTHING. It is generic sumatriptan but a lower dose.

Too expensive. Generic works fine. I get 6mg for a fraction of the cost. 3mg did not work for me and was really expensive.

Tried the 3mg. It didn't work. Wasn't powerful enough. On top of it not working, it is expensive. $1,200 for 4 injections. No thank you!

Having tried many different medications for my chronic migraines my neurologist recently gave me a trial of this shot with the warning that it may not work any better than anything else we have tried but he wanted me to give it a "shot"! I took the first one and it was like a 20 minute wonder. I started to feel better and the episode lessened so I could go back to teaching with no pills or or medications many of which I can't take because I have ulcers. I am severely limited on what I can take. A lifesaver, this one!!!
