  • 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.

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

  • I always carry some in my bag just in case and take it as soon as I feel the migraine is coming. Couldn't live without it!

  • I can work through the foggy period I get after taking it IF I'm up for the day. If I take it at night, I have to have at least four hours of sleep afterwards to function.

  • Imitrex allows me to be mobile after lying down for a couple hours unlike Maxalt where I have to lie down longer. For Maxalt to work for me I have to force myself to vomit before taking the 2nd dosage a couple hours after the 1st tablet.

  • The auto-injectors work amazingly fast. Had I known that upon starting Sumatriptan I would have asked for them right away. The needle causes little pain. It's the pressure from the medication entering your skin that causes mild discomfort.

  • 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.
