I use Imitrex because I get migraine with cluster headaches and it's the only thing that works for me. Preventative meds do not work.

I have been taking imitrex injection since '98 when it was given in the ER. now its a home kit and a lifesaver. only complaint is that when I have a debilitation migraine I sometimes waste a cartridge because I cant load the pen properly (turn right way) and it waste a full dose. As far as cost very reasonable, you just have to have your physician write your script right at 3 doses per refill. every dose comes with 3kits. that's 9 kits for your copay.

I have almost a paralyzing fear of needles, but after a few uses that has lessened when I realize how soon my pain is relieved. My only problem is my insurance company will only cover one refill every 60 days and I have had to pay the $360 out of pocket or risk not having a dose ready if a migrain strikes. I was initially leery because I had very limited success with the nasal spray and the oral was virtually useless

What a MIRACLE!!! I am a 29 yearold female (will be 30 in June of this year)and have had migrianes since I hit puberty that have gotten worse, especially during my menstrual cycle. I have tried every drug under the sun for my migrianes including Imitrex pills. Now have been on 6mg Imitrex Injections for a little over 2 years and I LOVE it! Only complaint is I get so sleepy afterwards and incrediable knee pain. But it is worth it!
