Side effects:   Mild Side Effects
Treatment Info
Condition / reason:   Migraine Headache
Dosage & duration:   2.5 mg taken as needed for the period of 2 years
Other conditions:   none
Other drugs taken:   maxalt 10 mg
Reported Results
Benefits:   Frova eliminated Migraine Headaches and the effect would last 24 hours.
Side effects:   The effect was slow. Approximately one or two hours before any significant pain relief was noticed. Also, some nausea from the drug.
Comments:   As soon as a migraine was detected a Frova would be administered. If the migraine was intercepted immediately the Frova was succesful with relieving pain and the chance of a rebound headache was slim. If a frova was not administered immediately a maxalt was taken then two hours afterwards a frova. This would eliminate pain for twenty four to thirty hours. On occasion a rebound headache would occur.
