The short form (2x/day) was working for me, but then it gave me blackouts followed by a horrible migraine attack that lasted 2 weeks, so my doctor put me on the long form that I take at dinner time. What a huge difference! I don't care if I have to take this the rest of my life. I was getting migraines a minimum of 3-4 times a week. Since being on this for a month now, I've had only one ...

I have taken this medication since a hospitalization in july 07 for severe migraine. It had decreased the intensity and occurance of my migrains significantly.

I have been taking this Medication for a lil over a month now for Migraines. Before I started on this I was having Migraines 3-4 times a week. I still get them but not as often and not as bad. It does make you really tired, I recomend not taking it in the morning if you have to drive to work. Best to be taken at night before bed. Works great so far!

I have had migraines for 20 years, 3-4wk, and tried every drug. This works the best, but doesn't eliminate all migraines. The only problems I notice are extreme tiredness, and my hands are sometimes numb. Lately I have woken up throughout the night because my right arm was asleep and hurt. Now during the day I can't grasp things with either hand. Still, it's worth it to me. I would giv ... Show Full Comment

I take this med for migraine prevention and it has been working. I was getting migraines 3-4 x's per week before it. Now I get maybe 1 migraine a month. It does make you very tired so ask you Dr. if you can take it at night. That has worked best for me. My boyfriend takes it for high blood pressure and he does the same.
