    Hi jason.

    I to suffer with migraines and have for the past 25 years. Have not heard of the medication you mentioned but ask your doctor for sumatriptin. This drug has completly changed my life. You take on tablet when you feel your migraine coming on and within half an hour feel better and migraine comes to nothing. Hope this helps

      Hi mitch. Thanks for the info. I suffer with vigrainous vertigo. Daily milder headached kept at bay by the ibuprofen i take daily. I get between 2 and 4 days a month where i wake with a pounding headache that nothing touches. What dosage sumatriptan are you on 50mg or 100mg? Cheers buddy.
