    I tied all the other triptans, and all helped but only Relpax works 100% every time, though occasionally i have to take two. one commenter here incorrectly said the FDA only allows two pills per week; not true, the limit is two per 24 hours

    This is the ONLY medicine that will completely take away my migraine pain. Occasionally, it will take 2 pills to totally relieve it. Cost can be an unfortunate factor, as I've had to pay $50/per pill at times.

    I have taken this for migraines. It works most times than not. It takes it to a lower level of pain from a 10+ to a 4 or 5. A narcotic is usually needed for the rest of the headache since drug is dangerous and not allowed to take more than two dozes per week.

    I call these my "magic pills". The only thing that works for my migraines. Within 45 mintues of use, I can resume all normal activities of my day. I have not experienced any side effects. Love them. Dislike the cost, but am thankful my insurance pays for the majority of the cost. I am only allowed 9 pills per month, but that is usually sufficient.

    Comment:
    Relpax made me extremely nauseous the first time I took it. I had to lay down and not move to prevent vomiting. It made me hazy and I passed out for 4 hours. Not only that, but it made my migraine WORSE. My migraines usually last 1 day, but after taking Relpax, my migraine lasted 3 days. Worse migraine of my life and I will never take Relpax again.
