first dose of Imitrex

August 2nd, 2006 at 02:43 pm

I've had my Imitrex prescription filled for a few months now without needing it. Pretty good, not having had a migraine for that long.

It snuck up on me last night. I cleaned the house, helped SO with dinner (eggplant parmesan and blueberry cobbler - YUM), drank several glasses of water, no alcohol...and yet, the migraine descended anyway. First I tried one Excedrin, thinking it was just a normal headache. Took another one a few hours later, to no avail. As soon as the hatchet-in-head feeling started up (always my first sign), I finally I pulled out the Imitrex and tried it out. I woke a few times during the night. The first time I got up, I felt drugged, but my head didn't hurt. This morning I still have a dull headache, but at least I could come to work! Yay for Imitrex!

Funny thing, I received a e-survey this morning on Imitrex vs. Topamax.

SO had to fill his gas tank, but that's still the only thing outside of the challenge that we've purchased. Not bad!

    Hurray! Imitrex worked for me for a while. I am waiting for a bad one to come along to try my two new samples, Maxalt and RelPax. Maxalt works well for my sister, so I am trying that first. I have not had a really bad one since April 11th, which is a record. I did have a minor one that was easily controlled with pain pills last weekend.

    I'm glad it worked. Nothing is worse than the lost days in bed with migraines.

    I'm so glad to hear it worked for you. I just got side effects from it when I took it (and no pain relief). People who it works for swear by it though!

    Im glad it worked for you. You need something to relieve your pain and have had a time finding that something. I hope you enjoy a pain free day today!
