Treatment Info
Condition / reason:   migraines
Dosage & duration:   2.5mg taken 3-4 times per week for the period of 6 yrs
Other conditions:   high blood pressure

Reported Results
Benefits:   Amerge is effective in reducing the pain and associated symptoms of migraines.
Side effects:   Mild drowsiness, sometimes mild nausea.
Comments:   I have very severe migraine disease and have tried many different treatments. None are effective 100% of the time. In my experience, Amerge is the most effective for mild and moderate migraines (Nothing seems to work for severe attacks). I prefer Amerge because the beneficial effects seem to last longer than many of the other anti-migraine meds (often 18-24 hrs.). Also, side effects seem to be negligible(No palpitations and dizziness like with imitrex). The downside is that Amerge takes longer to work (2-4 hrs) than the other triptans. But because of the better safety profile and the longer duration of effectiveness, for me Amerge is a top choice for migraines.
