Finally a few years ago I ended up in the ER and they PUMPED me full of morphine, sent me home with a script for Imitrex. I call it the miricle drug.

    I'm 24 years old and have had migraine/tension headaches since elementary school. I get extreme sensitivity to light, sound, and sometimes smells. I've tried every aspirin there is and nothing has worked. I usually just go to sleep and pray that the pain is gone when I wake, and usually it isn't! Sleeping sometimes makes it worse! I was prescribed Imitrex about 2 months ago as my first ... Show Full Comment

    This is my first time trying this drug and I had horrible side effects. I will not take this drug again, this is quite frightening because on 12/22/07 I suffered from a Transient Ischemic Attack and then another one on 1/29/08. 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.
