I just wanted to know what you all use for medication to treat your migraines. I have been using Midrin (epidrin) successfully for over 30 years, but apparently it is NLA and I have to find something else.

I tried Maxalt about 5 years ago, it didn't touch it.

The pharmacist suggested Imitrex (generic), would it be the same? I hope not. I have a call in to my Dr to see what she says and does.

So, what prescription medication do you take successfully?
I've used Imitrex (in pill form), but now use Zebutal. Both work for me, but the real trick is to take it as soon as you feel the migraine coming on. Ugh, I hate migraines.
