I am in my 40s and I work in college admissions. Ive never experienced migraines before and have been otherwise healthy. I fell hitting my head and was prescribed this medicine. Using this med had me in the hospital twice, I have severe hair loss, and what the er Dr says is syncope that makes me pass out. The Dr wants to try something new but look at me, in a profession where you're always in the public eye, almost bald and still suffering migraines.This is life altering but is being treated as , just one of those things...its depressing
