  • Perceived effectiveness for Migraine headaches: Major
  • Side Effects: None
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 200 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: This medication can cause you to loose a little weight. That said do NOT think this is a weight lose drug! You may only lose 5 lbs and it will only last a few months. Reason- you might not want to eat as much (great idea). As for migraine use- medication seems to work very well. BUT know it is designed to work in steps. If the level you are on isn't working talk with your doctor because they can and will increase the amount. Available in generic for cost savings.
Cost: < $25 monthly
