 5  Migraines Used when I have a migraine. It goes away within an hour, but makes me a little sleepy. It also gives me a little heartburn, but it’s worth it. I like this drug…it works well and has very few side effects. F 63

 1  Migraines No side effects relieved my moderate migraines on two separate occasions. I tried it again when I had a high level migraine took two doses apart and it didn't do much at all. Also extremely expensive. M 30 3 days
 4  migraine none First migraine med I've taken that didn't have horrible side effects and actually helped relieve migraine pain. The 7 day headache didn't go away, but the medicine significantly reduced the pain enough for me to participate in and acutally enjoy day-to-day activities! F 47 1 days

 5  Severe migraines None Axert is my wonder drug. After trying most every 'new' migraine medication out there, my doctor finally decided to try some of the older ones. Axert usually relieves my migraines on the first pill. If not, you can take a second one after one hour. I don't go anywhere without them. F 55 5 years

AXERT  (ALMOTRIPTAN MALATE):  Almotriptan is used to treat migraines. It helps to relieve headache, pain, and other migraine symptoms (including nausea, vomiting, sensitivity to light/sound). Prompt treatment helps you return to your normal routine and may decrease your need for other pain medications. Almotriptan belongs to a class of drugs known as triptans. It affects a certain natural substance (serotonin) that narrows blood vessels in the brain. It may also relieve pain by affecting certain nerves in the brain. Almotriptan does not prevent future migraines or lessen how often you get migraine attacks.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
