Count me in folks. The tablets work, as we all know, but far too slowly for them to be the choice preventative. 20 minutes is about my experience, but if taken at the very first twinge, they are perfectly capable of aborting an attack before hte pain becomes unbearable. Even the night-time attacks are affected, but obviously far more slowly.
Having said that, I would never return to Imigran tablets if the injectors are around.
Luke, do be careful to come on too strong - there are a lot of people around who will disagree with you, and do so from their personal experience. You don't want to put them off!
In the meantime, keep well.
