    I really benefited from the first injection and now have some on hand but it is extremely expensive! It cost, for the generic brand name, $360.00 for two home injection kits. There are a total of four shots available. WOW! That will surely cause another headache!

    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 had a hard time with the old injection pens, the needles were able to be seen and the pen made a loud snap when you injected and now with the new dose pen there is no snap and no visable needle! This is a life saver, i c ... Show Full Comment
