Common Questions and Answers about Imitrex and aspirin


Avatar n tn i took one does of imitrex and two hours later took the second pill. it doesn't seem to be working. do i try another day, does it take a few days of doses to work sometimes?
15031 tn?1219072889 If you do not know excedrine has aspirin in it and aspirin is not safe to take when you are pg. Apirin is a blood thinner, which can cause bleeding. So I would recommend contacting your DR if they get to bad.
Avatar f tn if you have one and ask about Imitrex to stop the headaches although, once you are finally off the codeine, I suspect they will go away as mine did. Wishing you the best of luck!

388154 tn?1306365291 I eated some salami took my 3 ribba and went to the farmaci and bought some aspirins. Often pills dont help on me when I take them so late after the headache has started. Anyway i asked for some water and took two pills at the farma. I started to walk towards the centrum in the town were I live , and my head felt like it was gonna burst in pieces. Is it Billstrongs migraine that has leaved him, just to jump to me I thougt .
Avatar f tn Last one felt past jaw joint and in teeth. Usually more mastoid and not TMJ like. Last one started this summer and continued even post Toradol. Finally somewhat better after phenergan and Dilaudid IV. About six months before last big lesion, eye doctor noted that eyes were funny in that the discs were not pale or cupped, but the retinal vessels were swollen such as is seen in nerve deterioration.
97628 tn?1204465633 I have palps and migraines too. If the caffeine does in fact bother you, you can take one tylenol and one aspirin - basically excedrin migraine without the caffeine. I find that this works just as well.
Avatar n tn My doctor recently put me on vicodin for kidney stones and i was SOOOOO nervous because i am 29 wks pregnant and they say never to take aspirin during pregnancy. Aspirin is the main ingredient in vicodin, so anyway...moderation is the key huh? good thing cuz man i hate taking pills, even if they do help the pain.
Avatar n tn You can take Imodium for the runs, it works wonders. If you have cramps, Kaopectate. Take some Tylenol or aspirin for aches and pains. Take a multi-vitamin EVERYDAY. Pre-natal ones are great for detox. Also, an amino acid called, L-Tyrosine, you can pick up at the local health store. It works wonders for some. Check the board for more info on it. And if you have no appetite, find something you can hold down, or have a craving for and stick to it.
Avatar n tn I was prescribed Topamax along with an appetite suppressant (Adipex) for weight loss a bit over a year ago and stopped taking them after two and a half months. I did not lose all of the weight I had wanted to, but most of it. I had gained 55 pounds while on Paxil over the course of two and a half years. By taking a combination of the two medicines, I lost 22 pounds the first month, 10 pounds the second month, and 8 pounds the first half of the third month.
Avatar f tn Imitrex tablets and the Imitrex injectable pen have completely helped me. I hardly ever need the pen and can usually get away with only half of an Imitrex tab. Hormone headaches are definitely for real, get yourself some pain relief and enjoy feeling better. Take care.
Avatar n tn ) My migraines have moved from above my eyes to behind my eyes and Imitrex is no longer working! All pregnancy tests are negative and I know that the booklet says that this can happen, but my goodness! No thank you. I will be switching back to my TriCylcen immediately!
Avatar n tn he is truly an inspiration to us all...hang in there and Thomas and Wizard can give you their testomonials and help you out with their suggestions......
543518 tn?1245325627 From acupuncture, botox, chiropratic, massage therapy, hypnois, vitamins, herbal remedies, high blood pressure medications, tryphans, antiseizures meds, ice and lavender and nothing works but a pain med or shot. Believe me I have gone without any pain meds, over the counter or prescriptions because I was being cautious about the "rebound effect." I keep a regular sleep pattern.
Avatar n tn I take imitrex and methocarmomol and zanaflex and sometimes tramadol. My migraines became transformed in 2004 and they've been daily ever since. Now I get three to five a day. The latest thing is I've developed white round scotoma in both eyes. I also see halos and long streaming lights that come out of the tv. This is not an ocular migraine. This is permanent. I have an appt. to see a neuro-opthamologist at Stanford in April.
Avatar n tn I've been diagnosed with migraine and interested in what works. I've tried imitrex and other meds.. Only codeine works if headaches not too bad. Most likely occurs after lenghty exertion, e.g. long hard bike ride. I stay hydrated.
Avatar f tn That did help some, but like the Esgic without aspirin, it didn't do much. I was told to stop the aspirin and only use the Ultram. I suffered, but still no more suggestions, except Imitrex. Also, by the way, if you"ll use a suppository, I used Tigan, that helps with the nausea. It also helps the headache from going into a full blown migraine. SOMETIMES. But it does help with the nausea. So the Neurologist gave me Tigan, also. That's four meds.
Avatar n tn I take very little supplements (milk thistle) sometimes, I have to take valium for leg cramps (if very painful)and I take aspirin and sometimes imitrex for migraine. (I was a nurse.) I am writing because of a new problem that I am wondering how to handle since, as a hepper, most doctors, other than liver docs, will prescribe to us the same as a "healthy" patient. This concerns me because I don't know (and they don't always know) if this is contraindicated in my situation.
770426 tn?1235065089 Hi Jerry - I'm taking 7.5 a day plus a full aspirin. My INR last Tuesday was 2.8 and I go back tomorrow for another check. I'm still getting regulated. I saw something that said to report a headache if it's the worst headache of you life but this is just a miserable, nagging kind all around my eyes and forehead.
Avatar m tn Also from diabetes type II, arrhythmia and migraines. For my conditions I take Imitrex 100mg,Depakote ER 500 mg,Digoxin 0.25mg,Seroquel 100 mg, Fortamet 500 mg and Wellbutrin 150 mg. I also use Ambien 12.5 mg to sleep. Now, I have been using and abusing Xanax 2 mg for the anxiety, Tramadol 50 mg and Vicodin 5/500 mg for the migraine pains.
Avatar f tn concern me and this last one really scared me, thinking it might be a heart attack. I chewed aspirin and tried to relax and eventually the aching pain went away. I am a 58 year old woman with no history of heart disease except for familial history of my dad dying at 59 of heart disease. I am only 5 pounds overweight and do not have high blood pressure or diabetes or any major illness. Twice I have gone to the ER, thinking I'm having a heart attack. The results are negative.
Avatar n tn Another important point is that I cannot even speak correctly, I would be speaking incomplete and wrong words, this starts happening after half of my tongue gets numb and I believe one of the reason in speaking wrong and crazy words is that perhaps half of my brain gets numb as well. I have never done an MRI but got some other brain scans done including blood test, blood sugar, uric acid and blood pressure etc. but everything looked normal. Please help me to diagnose this problem.
Avatar n tn I've even taken pills that were just the Acetaminophen, thinking maybe it would help, but apparently it's the mixture of the Acetaminophen and the Aspirin that do it for me. I really don't want to have to start taking a cocktail, and with the possibility of maybe giving myself an ulcer to avoid my pain, I want to know if there is something else I can take, that has no aspirin, that won't end up maybe causing an ulcer, or agitating one if I do have one.
Avatar n tn Is Imitrex one of the Triptans? Sumatriptan does stop the pain, and I have tried sinusitis medication but this has no effect.
Avatar n tn I buy a couple meds from to get a price I can afford. I looked up both the Imitrex and the Relpax and was horrified they are so expensive even in Canada. So I know for certain I can't get the here in US. I took Imitrex several years back before I lost my health coverage and seem to remember it did not agree with me, but again, I'll talk with my doctor. Dr Noopur, thank you too, I am glad to hear a patch is at least in development.
751951 tn?1406636463 Q told me to back up to the 600 mg doses of Neurontin, and prescribed Imitrex, one to two as needed, to tackle the bouts of what he and Dr. K think might be migraine. Okay, I tried it last night, and again this morning. I felt a tightness in the neck and jaw after last night's dose, just as the patient instructions from the pharmacy said I might with the initial dose. However, it wasn't severe, nor did it persevere. Today, no such sensation. I'm starting to like my pharmacy a lot.
Avatar f tn I have taken Imitrex and it is not addictive. It really works to. Please don't drive or anything until you know how it affects you. It is very expensive by the way.
342967 tn?1206313739 I knew it was NOT a migraine but I stayed on the inderal too imitrex when it got REAL intense because the pain was always there and tried OTC drugs, aspirin, ibuprofen, acetaminophen, etc. So in October the constant pain was growing heavier and I couldn't take it, I went back to the doctor and he ordered a second CAT scan and yet, came back clear he sent me off with Lortabs to last me a lifetime.
Avatar f tn Hi and welcome to the Migraines & Headaches Community. Have you told your doctor about the side effects? What did they say? How long have you been on the meds? It takes awhile to know for sure if they are going to work...a month or so. Migraine treatment is a marathon not a sprint. You are not going to find any immediate cures. It will take time to try this and try that and change the dose of this or that. It can be frustrating I know but...that's the way it is.
