I've had migraines for 47 years, as many as 15 days a month every month. I've used most everything out there, OTC and prescription, herbal, alternative, legal and not so legal.
The triptans have pretty much saved my life. But they are all different and I needed to try many of them. The 2 that work best for me are Relpax and Maxalt. Imitrex (I used the injections) made me feel like I was having a heart attack. For my sister it's the opposite - Imitrex works great for her, but the others do nothing.
