Advice & Tips: The cost of this drug before insurance is almost $5000!!! This is for an 8 pack of the meds. My insurance brought it down to a $150 copayment, but there is a coupon available that drops it down to $35 copayment for brand and $0 for generic. The link for the 2016 coupon is: http://www.rxpharmacycoupons.com/migranal-manufacturer-coupon.html

Advice & Tips: This medication helped VERY little if at all! The side effects of the horrible taste in my mouth and the lake of efficacy made it not worth it! There are so many things that could be causing the head ache. I believe mine is caused by a virus. So until I can eradicate the cause, unfortunately, the Head ache will remain and is barely manageable. I have had some relief with homeopathic headache medicine!
Side effects: bad taste in mouth
