This is my first time trying this drug and I had horrible side effects.

After reading the Precautions, the TIA that I had was one of the things listed on the Precaution sheet. Right now as I type, I can feel horrible from this pill. This wa ... Show Full Comment

It was the miracle drug for me. Migraines are generally gone in 20 minutes with 1 dose. Have been using it for 10+ years. Have had migraines since I was 19 years old.

Comment:
I took 100 mg of Imitrex, and about 10 minutes I had an adverse reaction. I experienced facial paralysis, chest pain and tightness, then my face and head started to burn and tingle. My throat started to swell and I had trouble breathing. I started to vomit. All I could do was cry! I will never take this medication again!
