  • Effectiveness
    Major (for migraine)
  • Side effects
    Severe (feeling lousy for days after)
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Very hard to take
Dosage: As needed
Advice & Tips: Avoid taking this pill and any other Triptan. The side effects are getting worse as I take more of it. I managed to get down to taking it once in 7-10 days and it doesn't help. I feel lousy for days each time I take just one pill.
Side effects: feeling lousy for days after
