Common Questions and Answers about Relpax vs imitrex


Avatar f tn Tripans are the only True migraine drug. Try Relpax and Keep imitrex. I rotate between both but do not take within 24 hours of one another. always have ibuprofen which is for inflammation. Get tested for celiac disease and diabetes and have an mri but not too often if they find nothing. check your eyes teeth and control allergies. switch to raw food diet.
Avatar n tn I was surprised to see that no one mentioned Relpax; it's in the same class of triptan drugs as Maxalt and Imitrex. If I take 40 mg Relpax within the 1st 10-15 minutes after the onset of a migraine it eliminates the migraine about 85% of the time.
Avatar n tn Hi, I take Imitrex for migraines when needed and they seem to work well. Once I stopped taking opiate pain meds, my migraines essentially went away; having two or three per year as opposed to per month. Ask your physician about Imitrex and good luck in your recovery.
Avatar f tn what country do you live in, or better yet do you have socialized health care like the U.K. and Canada vs. privatized health care like the USA has. If you live in a privatized health care country, do you have decent insurance or do you have to pay all costs out of pocket? The answer to these questions will tell me which path to pain management and resolution will be best for you based on your resources.
936133 tn?1244832491 This is true for over-the-counter medications like Excedrin and BC powders, as well as prescription medications like Fiorinal, Midrin, and “triptans” like Imitrex, Zomig, Relpax, Frova, etc. Exactly why this occurs is unclear, but it is a well established clinical finding. Anyone who takes pain medications more than twice a week is in danger of perpetuating their headaches. Occasional usage of pain medications several times in one week is permissible, as long as it is not a regular pattern.
Avatar n tn I'm not sure how these all interchange with eachother but I have decided my only option for the daily headaches to go away is to give the topamax atleast 6 months time to work. My doctore also gave me a RX for Imitrex when migranes come on and of course that works immediately. anyone else taking vitamins on a regular basis or prozac with topamax?
Avatar n tn My name is Suzzette. I am new to the web site. I was prescribed Topamax about a year ago by my Pain Doctor. I stopped taking it because it made me feel confused. I am about to try it again for the pain, but most of all... for me... THE WEIGHT GAIN. I had a 3 level spinal cord decompression and loads of steroid injections for the bone graft and the pain. That translates into 50 pounds I gained. I am so desperate to get this weight off, I'm just about willing to do anything.
Avatar f tn I went off Topamax for a while, and had decided it was not worth having migraines! (My insurance will only pay 50% of the price of Imitrex or Maxalt, or any drug, and worse yet, limits me on how many a month, so I need a way to PREVENT migraines.) The real reason I need to drop Topamax is due to the Brain Fog. I work for a major corporation, and have made a few public blunders like forgetting stuff, in the last year.
