MIGARD – Frovatriptan Succinate Monohydrate
My personal review by David Allen
First off Migard is not one of those casual drugs that can be taken daily or used to prevent migraine headaches for appearing like Petadolex or Paracetamol for light pain, this drug is to be taken when you feel the signs of a migraine coming on or if have a migraine headache (not a normal headache).
It is not a very quick acting drug
Migard is not a quick acting drug when you first take it, for me it can start to work between (1) one – (4) four hours, for me it’s is normally around (3) three hours on average.
The wait is worth it though.
Once Migard starts getting to work you can feel your migraine easing off every Minuit that passes bye,
Taking this drug has its down-sides
Taking Migard isn’t an easy drug to take, but it gets better once you get used to taking over time, as it starts to work you can feel it running through body, it’s hard to put into words, but you feel sensitivity in parts of your body like the back of your mouth, your skin feels sensitive under worm or hot water, when you are having a shower the water droplets can feel like little pin pricks. Plus you can sometimes feel a bit sluggish over the rest of the day but not every time.
Migard does not always stopped every migraine you may have some migraine just want to come on whatever you take, it will stop or relieve about 95% of my migraine headaches
Migard come in a box of six (6) tablets and your GP should supply you with three boxes on prescription this will make (18) eighteen tablets which does not go far if you have a run of returning migraines.
The good points for taking Migard
The good points are that this drug works and works very effectively indeed. Once this drug is in your system and working you will be able to get on with the rest of the day. For me this is the only drug for migraine headaches that works and that has been the main part of my migraine drugs cabinet for about (8) eight years.
Migard is one of the main drugs that have given me loads of my life back from wasted days in bed with incredible pain and with my head down the toilet being sick!
The best ways to take this drug
- Take a tablet and then have a sleep if possible
- Take as soon as you feel a migraine coming on.
- Try not taking one for a normal headache (you will be wasting your small supply)
- You can take a tablet if you have a full migraine (it just takes longer to get rid of)

A last thought from me
In my view taking Migard for your migraine headaches out ways any side affects you may have with this drug!
Official Drug Overview
Migard is to be used for controlling, and preventing migraine headaches.
It has been found that when someone has a migraine attack, there blood vessels in there brain are becoming enlarged, this enlargement is the thing that is caucusing their pain. Migard (Frovatriptan) is designed to constrict the enlarged blood vessels which should stop a migraine.
Migard is not a drug for preventing a migraine appearing, this is what paracetamol or ibruprofen and alternative treatments are for. Migard is designed for taking as soon as you feel a migraine coming on, or even when you actually have a migraine.
