I suffer from migraines about 1/2 the month. When your Imitrex/Relpax etc. doesnt work, or you dont take it in time, (it happens to me mostly when i get one when im sleeping, and by the time I wake up its too late to stop it), what do you take for pain? If i get a full migraine, that i cant stop with imitrex, they last for 3-5 days. So, just waiting it, and laying in the dark isnt an option.
