DH had to very carefully guide me down the hall to the bed while I closed my eyes and held my head in my hands. I threw up shortly after and the headache subsided. I have never taken it since and have two friends who had the same reaction. I am sure it works for some but I won't try it again.Have you tried it? Did it work?
Oh my gosh. Nope to your question. Years ago, while in Coco Beach Florida for husbands award ceremony from Nasa I came down with a doozy of a migraine. I feared not being able to attend the very dinner that he was featured in and felt awful. But, "felt awful". A lady there, saw me cringing and gave me her Imitrex and told me these are guaranteed to take that head ache away right now. Not being one to take other people's meds, I thanked her and we walked apart. Hours later my husband said, "Honey, take that pill that woman gave you." I said, "nuh uh." Still to this day it's in that little black purse I toted that night, in it's original packaging, unopened. The headache didn't go away, I also couldn't see, but I could hear, I could hear everything said about the man I'm married to. Yes, I went...
My migraines are more eye-graines meaning I simply have no vision, so it hurts, there's pressure and I can't see. Not good while you're driving and often times brought on by the glare off other cars chrome.
