Advice & Tips: Your doctor will tell you that this medication works best if and when taken the moment you feel a migraine is starting. I am not a Dr so when is that moment? Also, most insurance companies only cover 4 pills a month. The prescription does have rules regarding taking more... wait 2 hours before taking another tablet (two hours can be a life time), and do not take more than 80mg in 24 hours. It's not like Advil where you just keep taking it every 6 hours... The company does have a discount program to help with co-pays
Cost: < $25 monthly
