  • Take sumatriptan at the first sign of migraine pain and it will work every time. Don't hesitate.

    Migraine headache
  • Taking the recommended dose of sumatriptan makes me feel very tired and worn out, for at least several hours. However, it is much better than a full migraine, which, for me, involves between about 10-20 hours of intense pain.

    Migraine headache
  • Know that you might feel an overall tightening sensation inside your body. Lowered appetite for a few hours.

  • If it makes you feel more awful than a migraine does, don't take it! There's no reason to put yourself through that. My brother and I both had very bad side effects from Sumatriptan (more side effects than I am able to click for this review), but my grandpa uses it just fine. Know yourself and don't force yourself to take anything just because it's said that it'll help.

    Migraine headache
  • I used to wait until I knew the pain was a migraine, but it took so much longer to work, now I take it at the first sign. For the last year or so, I get tired after taking it, unless I'm up and moving around, but it's better than the pain!

  • Believe in it...and if you can recognize the oncoming severe headache take this medication before it actually occurs. Less recovery time. Even if you get a full migraine...this drug will correct that within about 20-30 minutes

    Migraine headache
  • Works well for before or during a migraine unlike maxalt which needs to be taken at the earliest sign of a migraine and won't work well unless done so.

    Migraine headache
  • drink enough water & B safe! I feel really weird for a while but then my migrain goes away completely. It does make any pain you already have increase and my muscles sore for awhile! Over all I feel its worth it to me!
