Comment:
I have had migraines for over 30 years. I sometimes wake up with a severe migraine with nausea so this medication has been a godsend. Before, I would take the imitrex pill and would just end up vomiting it up. Since using the injection, my migraines are relieved in about 1 hour. My only complaint is that it makes me extremely tired.

This type of Imitrex works best for me. Usually after 15 minutes I get relief. Sometimes my scalp tingles a bit, but then I know it is working. The only complaint I have is the price of the medication. Now that I do not have health insurance, I can not afford the shots.

I have tried everything from advil to suffering through the pain and the ease of just giving a simple injection to the quicknes of the medication i will not need any thing else!

This is a life saver, i c ... Show Full Comment
