    When I have tension headaches or migraine, I take one pill and the headaches goes away after about 30'. I only take one pill for each headache episode, Maybe once a month What I don't like is that my insurance doesn't cover it

    Most of the time Butalbital works well to relieve both migraine and tension headaches for me.

    I took this for tension headaches, if you wait too long to take it, its slow to kick in. I also recommend taking this med at home and not out and about at work or school, this med causes faint spells and drowsiness!

    Comment:
    I took this years ago for migraines, so when they returned, I asked my Dr for this med. TRUE, it can make you feel "drunk", so use caution. Take it, lie down, and stay there awhile. Someone mentioned taking more than the one, but, I would consult your DR first.
