Reported Results
Benefits:   This ia a life altering medication for me. I get occaisional migraines due to hormonal changes, allergy and weather changes. This medication stops a severe headache and it rarely returns. It works within about an hour. It stops a migraine that may last for two days at times. I am not a big fan of taking medications but this one is a miracle drug.
Side effects:   I rarely experience any side effect from this medication. Occaisionaly I may feel a little drowsy or relaxed but it is very mild and even welcome at times.
Comments:   I take this medication at the onset of a migraine or severe headache. It works 99% of the time. Rarely I have to take a second dose (as instructed) if the headache does not subside but this is very rare. It was prescribed for menstrual migraine but works for other causes of headache as well.
