    Comment:
    Was prescribed this for what my neurologist deemed "migraine syndrom". I was having dizzy spells and unbalanced walking, felt like passing out at times. He prescribed this for those symptoms. After taking this, I had major headaches, blurred vision, panic attacks not to mention it did nothing for my original symptoms. I think this doctor is a quack!

    Went from an average of 10 Migraines a month to none over the last 4 weeks. Have tried many other Migraine prevention medicine with not success.

    Comment:
    I was skeptical,(have had many failures, this was the last one I hadn't tried yet) but it has worked for me. I take 3-250mg pills 8 hrs apart. January is usually my worst month for migraines because of the weather swings and I only needed 1 zomig at the beginning of the month. I started divalproex in Nov. Tried topamax but had terrible allergic reactions. This one is way cheaper and works well ... Show Full Comment
