Well, this may sound odd but I sure am glad I had an attack at the doctor's office today. I handed him some information I had printed out from links I found here and he immediately ran and grabbed a Zomig tablet (melt in mouth or under toungue) and administered a Toradol shot (..waste of time). Within 30 minutes my headache vanished. Besides feeling like a had run a marathon...as usual.. I felt and still feel pretty good. I know Terrell Davis (spelling?) was administered a shot of Zomig during the Superbowl last year and he played a great game afterwards. Unfortunately this is not a preventive medication but I sure hope it works as an abortive medication. It can be taken every 2hrs up to 4 times a day. I have also been seeing a little relief after using Cyproheptadine. You can get information on Zomig, a handy little dispenser, and a coupon off your first prescription by calling 1-800-295-8699. I hope this helps anyone that hasn't tried it.
