Imitrex get you high

Common Questions and Answers about Imitrex get you high


Avatar m tn There are lots on the market so if imitrex doesn't work for you, there are more you can try that might work better for you. Are triptans safe? Well, for a normal healthy adult who isn't on any other medications YES they are VERY SAFE!!! And in that situation, for migraines, they are the BEST type of migraine medication to use unless you suffer from "basilar migraine" or "Hemiplegic migraine" ...
228686 tn?1211558307 I would try the medication and take it as prescribed and see how it makes you feel. If at all possible take it when you are at home in case you do have side effects.
518798 tn?1295215879 I was wondering if like many other headache and migraine medication. Do you get immune to Imitrex (quits working because you get used to them) I'd greatly appreciate any feedback thanks a bunch . . Jim B.
Avatar f tn Now get this..... If I take the Imitrex while I'm awake, I can feel it starting to work in about 15-20 minutes! (30 if I have food in my stomach). Does anyone have any ideas about this? A thought just Occurred to me. I wonder if this is related to blood pressure ? Are lying down and blood pressure related somehow? I called my dr today and wouldn't you know it, THEY'RE CLOSED TODAY ! I'm off Mon, Tue and Thurs and they're closed TODAY! ugh!
168348 tn?1379360675 Since my TT last July, I haven't had a migraine, though I do take Imitrex as soon as I feel one coming on (you should definitely get a prescription for migraine medicine, and find one that works for you--tylenol is just not strong enough in some cases).
Avatar f tn When you decide let us know. You will detox physically if you don't have meds, but unless you decide to really stop, then this is just a detour until you use again.
Avatar f tn which is to educate yourself. You might hit on something that helps you personally, since there is a lot of individual variance in CFS/ME. Here is the CFS group at Medhelp for starters, where there is a doctor answering questions in recent times: But your bone problems might be a separate issue. If you are taking lots of vit D, I'd reconsider that seeing as how vit D causes increased absorption of calcium and you have spurs..
509483 tn?1232171211 That is too high to be healthy, and it indicates a problem. You need to ask a doctor to run a Free T4 test and a Free T3 test. Pick any doctor. The one you are seeing now should have ordered the tests I mentioned the minute he looked at the results of you TSH test. Just go to a new doctor and ask for those tests, and another TSH test to go with them.
Avatar n tn Thanks a milllion for you post. It brought tears to my eyes... I was having a semi-bad morning here at work, and feeling kind of "Worthless"-- But to know that I was part of making some kid's summer afternoon [by being made into part of a paper boat armada] kind of makes me think that "all is right" with the world! Thanks again, and have a great weekend!
393986 tn?1303829575 Hi. The EMG will tell you which muscles are at fault. I would like to ask the reason for the hysterectomy. Just trying to find any link. How are your migraines now? I guess I can not personally take the case. But through this forum, we can attempt to have some clear ideas as to what the cause could be. Please do not hesitate to ask any questions and queries. I may not be able to answer some of them, but a discussion can always lead to new insights.
203003 tn?1210859507 More info makes much difference in the responses a person will receive. You obviously have an abnormal condition, which I hope you get treatment for soon. I know I came across a bit harshly yesterday, but with the info received, it seemed appropriate. Please accept my apologies for that. Most of us are conditioned to say "no" to opiate use, unless it is very extreme. After all, we all are trying to stay, and keep each other from using.
Avatar f tn So I wish you the best of luck, get all the documentation you can get your hands on, and don't give up, you get 4 chances before it goes in front of a judge. keep in tough and let me know if you have any other questions I might be able to help you with.
1088430 tn?1259163373 Ok, I know wrong forum to venture too far into anxiety issues (: Won't go too far xcept to say that after a year of ignoring what my primary doc finally was caring enough to come out and talk to me about when I went to him for "stomach issues" and thinking I had possible "over active thyroid" or something or another (ha) And avoiding him then like the plague (ha) b/c I even had a grudge against him for thinking it (even though he's the sweetest man)...
Avatar n tn I can't remember if you mentioned if you have used the Imitrex injection. Anyway, I am 58 and have suffered with really sick to going into convulsions type headpain/migraines since I can remember starting at the age of 7. Bad, bad, bad! Yes, I puked with mine for a good 8-12 hours. This lasted I would say maybe up to 10 years ago. I went on topa which the side effects were the worst for about 1 1/2 years.
1285653 tn?1288362229 Sorry to pick your brain but all these meds cost so much that it is nice to get an opinion on it b4 you sink money into it.
1719886 tn?1311617631 I have to say that save for last Friday when I was drugged with Morphine and Imitrex, I haven't felt better. I am hoping that my 17 day headache saga is coming to an end, but after the many failed attempts, my hopes aren't up high...not yet anyway. Prior to this last flare up, I had lost 11 pounds, guess I will be starting over after I'm done with this Prednisone. Which brings me to another point: I feel like I am in a tunnel, and idk if it's the Prednisone or the Elavil doin it!
Avatar f tn also, if someone offered you a medication that worked as well as Imitrex, you would probably use it when you were in pain as a substitute for Imitrex... which all shows that Imitrex is in no way addictive. As for physical dependency... well, I have heard of the triptan Maxalt causing rebound headaches, which could be considered a type of physical dependency maybe... but, out of all of the triptans, the ONLY triptan that has shown this is Maxalt, not Imitrex.
Avatar n tn I have a friend that has dealt with debilitating migraines all of her life and she swears that the prescription drug Maxalt is the only thing that is effective for her and she has tried many medications including imitrex. She told me they are dissolvable tablets such that if you get sick and vomit, you won't vomit up the medication. I will get a migraine headache every once in a blue moon and I take the regular OTC stuff for it.
Avatar f tn If you can't find the specific link about the free Initrex, please message me and I'll give you a specific link and some more info..God bless..I know migraines all to well..
Avatar n tn You won't know if it's something like that until you test- so please urge her to get the pictures of her brain! Is she working with a neurologist on her headaches? If she is and they are the ones telling her to take imitrex daily, I recommend she try a different neurologist. Plus it sounds like they have not done enough testing on your mom. There are many kinds of headaches, but I am assuming she has been diagnosed with migraines, since she takes imitrex daily. Is that correct?
1742220 tn?1331360327 sometimes I just feel like I am out of words. wow. I feel so dissed and like, dropped, and like ... what was the other word I had ... I forget. it don't matter tho I don't care. I realy don't ... no for once I am not talking about him ... gah!!!! you think that's alls I ever think about? hm um I got some imitrex they gave it to me early. I still know ht get a scrip early. they crabbed at me about it tho.
Avatar n tn hI, Did imitrex help his migraine? Imitrex is prescribed for migraine and not for sinusitis. Also high blood pressure causes headache and not the other way around.I would suggest you to wait for the CT scan report and if other possibilities are ruled out please consult a headache specialist. Meanwhile also try to identify the trigger for his migraine, i know it is difficult but its worth a try!
Avatar f tn I would see my doctor and ask for medication to help get you through the migraines. I only take Imitrex when I get a bad headache or migraine.
579258 tn?1250652943 Migraine - early am - Was high intensity and used hydrocodone. Migraine - evening - Was one step lower in intensity and used tylenol with codeine Migraine - continued evening - One step lower yet in intensity and chose Advil. Hoping that going to sleep with Advil will help it go away .. hate to use prescription meds unless I have to .. it's always a gamble at this point.
1742220 tn?1331360327 its really weird not pleasant. I guess my toes too yeah. but that's it. then when you get warm they just go back to normal but they get all red first its about restricted blood flow and such, as you can imagine I always thought it was from the Vicodin. somehow. but its apparently usually hereditary or 'idiopathic' meaning no known cause these people are said to be allergic to cold weather. there goes Boston. or Maine.
Avatar n tn I do not know if your child is misdiagnosed, but i do feel that you should go with your gut, and get a second opinion.
1742220 tn?1331360327 I didn't realize how my body goes into some reaction when I get that mig pain ... I get super tense, my stomach goes all tight ... it is now, still ... im trying to relax ... and my right side of my head just exploded with pain. t he spasms lasted for about three hours. but not as bad. I took another imitrex.
1742220 tn?1331360327 was he just always insanely high? yes. I think I need to rest a little laters I love you mh. come back!
Avatar f tn You need to get an accurate reading and also find out if there any other underlying medical issue that is causing the high readings. From your profile, you stated that you get migraine headaches. What medicine do you take for migraine prophylaxis and treatment, any triptans, like sumatriptan (Imitrex) or zolmitriptan (Zomig) and etc? Please inform your provider(s) and pharmacist of all your medical conditions and medications, including over-the-counter and supplements.
