Migraine Medication

I've been on Topiratmate 50mg for a month now and have seen a good drop in my migraine episodes so far. This is my first ever medication for my migraines and am shocked something worked this quick as I suffered for so long. Anyone else have quick success with their medication?

I had quick success with beta blockers. Unfortunately, they also lowered my heart rate to the lower 30s just as quickly. While they were great for the migraines, I could never get to a dose that was low enough to keep my heart rate w/i acceptable levels, and work on the headaches. Quite a disappointment.
