Tips for Good Reviews
This drug is invaluable when suffering from a tension headache ON TOP of a migraine headache which happens to me often. It relaxes me and helps me fall asleep when my head is pounding so bad that I can't sleep. I have taken it for about 35 years with success and no severe side effects, and now my new insurance won't pay for it....
Very terrible experience! I took one pill at 4:30 pm and by 12:00 am I was in the emergency room. Felt like I was going to have a heart attack. My symptoms included warm chest and body, leg shakes, feet sweating on bottom, chest had rapid heartbeat that would not slow down. Went to the emergency room. By then I had the same symptoms but also had dilated pupils, fast speech, and confusion. I am only 104 pounds 5'7 so maybe I was too little to take one of these pills. Just be careful. My headache was gone but it was not worth what I went through. I would rather suffer from tension headaches then deal with that ever again.

BE PREPARED FOR THE CAFFINE BUT IT LETS GO IN FOUR TO SIX HOURS.
Used it when migraine started, but before it was severe. took about 1 1/2 hours to work. headache returned after 5 hours so took a second dose (prescribed for every 6 hours). same results. Imitrex works faster and lasts longer, but I only have limited supply due to insurance so I use BUT/ASA/CAFF when migraine is not intolerable.
