    I was fortunate enough to have insurance that paid for Imitrex injections until the patent expired. I was then switched to the generic form of sumatriptin succinate both oral and injection. It just doesn't compare to the relief I was able to get from the Imitrex and I am wondering what I am going to do now to treat my migraines. This generic drug doesn't seem to touch them at all!

    I have used this for 11 years after several car accidents and concussions left me with long-term migraines. It is an excellent medication. I am grateful I have health insurance and only pay Co-Pay of $20 for 9.

    I am amazed how quickly this medication works. the problem is the price. over 100 dollars for 9 tablets means I cannot take it as I need it.But its such a valuable medication for me, I can actually enjoy my day rather than lay in bed suffering.

    "it'll be cheaper when patent expires in feb 2009" Sadly it is not the case: I am been charged by Encino Hospital $1882 for 6mg of this. Just crazy!!!
