Reviews for Alsuma
For Migraine "Severe Migraines/Cluster Headaches: 8 years. Intensity/frequency varies. intensity is around 9-10(10 point scale) frequency is around 3 - 4 per week, some lasting 2 -3 days. I have tried many medications, most Triptans - Maxalt, Zomig, Relpax, Frova. Axert works well for me, but when it doesn't I use Alsuma Injection. It works like a Epipen injection you give yourself. Place the pen against your skin and push hard. There is a jolt, and then the needle point emerges and you keep it there for 5 seconds. The pain from the prick is not bad because the needle is small. The jolt is kinda scary. I have to brace myself, but way worth it. It WORKS. Some nausea, but not much other side effects. I usually go to sleep right after I take it."
