For Migraine “Suffered from migraines, after several different med’s the neurologist prescribed me axert. Long story short, I take at the onset, and am able to stay at work. No more dark rooms, staying in bed under comforter or crying!! Amazing!!”

For Migraine “I have tried a few triptans; (Zomig, Maxalt, Imitrex, Axert) and had the best results with Axert 12.5mg. I also use a toradol nasal spray in conjunction with the triptan. I suffer from chronic migraines (15-18/month).I am able to function and not miss any work with Axert. I am an IT executive and do not find I have any diminished capacity with Axert.I am currently waiting for coverage approval to start botox (200 units) for my migraines which will hopefully eliminate my headaches. Fingers crossed!”

For Migraine “I have suffered with Migraine headaches for years, and have tried all kinds of medication. I have been diagnosed by a Neurologist as having Chronic Migraines, that go into a loop, and the headache just keeps getting worse and I wake up every single day with a Migraine. I have just tried Axert 12.5mg and my headaches are massively better. I can actually function after taking this medication. I would recommend this medication for sure.”

For Migraine “I’ve tried a few triptans but this is the first one I’ve tolerated. In general, it is effective within an hour. However, in the rare case my migraine is preceded by an aura, it seems less effective. That said, since I can’t tolerate other triptans due to side effects, I like this one best. (My insurance company doesn’t like it and I needed to obtain prior authorization, always a headache!) Use the coupon for the copay if you can.”

For Migraine “Had the beginning of migraine on a night shift. Took 1 tablet and within 15 minutes I could function again, with none of the stated side effects”

For Migraine “I have tried many many medication to treat my severe and frequent migraines!! My only complaint is the price. It is cost-prohibitive to take as needed.”
