Thread Name: BS: Headaches
Subject: RE: BS: Headaches
Imitrex is known to cause heart problems in many people. I've had migraines for 20 years and I took Imitrex for 5 years and couldn't take it without feeling incredible pressure on my chest. If you're new to Migraine meds this probably isn't a good one to start taking, Imitrex is involved in many lawsuits due to heart attacks.

If you do decide to take your headaches to a professional, Maxalt or Relplex would probably be a better choice. If your headaches are severe enough, you need to see a professional. Migraines are nothing to play with; I've ended up in the ER a few times. It usually takes a Demerol shot to knock mine out, and I get those once a month.
