Four years ago I was taking Imitrex oral almost everyday for migraine suppression. I was also investigating a possible coronary artery problem. My doctor wanted me to stop the Imitrex while we resolved the heart issue, but I told her I was not about to let go of the Imitrex!

Comment:
While Imitrex gave me instant relief from my migrains and was very easy to use I had a very bad reaction when I had to use it while taking another med. (Zoloft)I had a psychotic break. It was one of the worst experiences of my life. I filled all my meds at the same pharmasist and my doctors knew all the meds I was taking.
