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!

I've had migraines for 20 years and nothing has worked to abort a headache as well as this. Topamax helps limit the number of headaches I get, but can't eliminate them. When I get them, 1 Imitrex works within 2 hours, and gives me a great boost of energy along with it. With NO drowsiness or side effects. It's changed my life. I couldn't live without them!!!!
