Migraine by Anonymous

My experience with migraines is similar to that of Stefan and Jennifer, [reference needed here?] in that I have tried several drugs (Maxalt and Imitrex, both in pill and IV form) and have found them to be effective only on rare occasions.  It is also somewhat worrisome to me that when I go to the doctor to get a shot of Imitrex, I have to wait 20-30 minutes on a monitor to make sure there are no serious heart-related side effects.  This is in contrast with my experience with marijuana, which has not had any negative side effects except a propensity to crave strange foods.
