    None
  • Adherence

  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Advice & Tips: I was first given this medication with a disabling migraine which had lasted for nearly a month, possibly related to my epilepsy. It was in a clinical trial with another drug as an IV injection. I'm not even sure if that type of treatment is still available, but it was extraordinarily painful has the IV site had to be moved with every injection due to degradation of the veins. However, it got rid of the headache. At that point, I didn't particularly care about anything else. Imitrex by itself is a wonderful medication with which I experienced tremendous relief with absolutely no side effects.
