Ugh and also Guh...

At 3:45 AM, I woke up with a migraine.  Took my Imitrex and waited.  And waited.  Waited some more.

At 5:15, I took the other half pill, figuring this was a tough one and I needed the full 100 mg.  I waited some more.

No dice.

At 6:30, Jane suggested I take another half pill (you can safely take up to two "full" doses in a 24 hour period).  By this point, it was clear I wasn't going into work this morning.

At 8:30, I was still in lots of pain, still had not gotten back to sleep, so I decided to take the other half of the second pill.

It's finally kicking in.  The pain is still there, but it's dwindling.  I'm now worried the other effect (intense drowsiness) will kick in.  I'm not up to driving to work yet, but I do need to stay conscious, since my boss is out of town at a conference.

On top of everything else, migraine + stomach emptied of all but water and medication = nausea and heartburn.  And the thought of food just makes it worse.

I would like a do-over please.
