    Have taken for 20 yrs. Back then, a pharmacist told me it had the fewest side effects, but works slower, taking an hour to feel better. What I've learned is that I can take less than the whole pill of 2.5 mg. It's always been safe for me to do this. What also is important is to act quickly when a migraine starts, and then taking a small amount works. To get some relief in 10-15 minutes, i ... Show Full Comment

    I get occasional migraine or cluster headaches. Naratriptan was tried after some of the other triptan family drugs failed or resulted in undesirable side effects, such as jaw pain and rebound headaches.

    I used a generic 2.5 tablet. I got little relief from pain. The side effects are almost unbearable. Stomach pain lasts for two days after dose. My usual happy self turns to a most unusual very agitated mental state. It causes my neck and jaw to cramp so tightly it adds pain to my headache. I got much better relief on Relpax which had no bad side effects. But insurance refuses to cover the Relpax : ... Show Full Comment

    I used Amerge 2.5 mg very successfully to abort migraines at the first signs of a headache. Recently i have used Heritage Pharmaceuticals generic brand and find it much less effective and worse, it causes an upset stomache which never occurred until using this brand. This product is made in India, hopefully it is tested for effectiveness and safety. Has anyone else experienced stomache issues u ... Show Full Comment
