Common Questions and Answers about Sumatriptan injection cost


1102283 tn?1257821072 Anyway, because of superior bioavailability of the more expensive triptans is why I suggest getting the back up prescriptions for the Zomig Nasal Spray and the Maxalt-MLTs just in case the generic Sumatriptan tablets do not work for you. But, for cost reasons, fill the generic Sumatriptan tablet prescription first! (as long as the doctor at the clinic agrees) And, try to get samples of what ever triptans the clinic has to hand out if possible, regardless of the brand..

I get a migraine every day, and as soon as I feel it coming on, I take a sumatriptan tablet. As you might guess, I too have been wondering if I am dependent on the medication! I would like to hear from others who use it as often as I do.
Avatar n tn From a lifetime of having migraines nothing much can stop it if the migraine is too far advanced (unless you get an injection to enable you to sleep it off).. Good luck in Panama! Hope that naprosyn (Aleve) and caffeine tablets are available without a perscription there...
1088430 tn?1259163373 Hi tia1977, I live in Canada, specifically in BC, so in BC we don't really have this sort of problem when it comes to triptans anymore because our government insurance plan recognizes any triptan, in any delivery method (tablet, nasal spray, injection), in any amount, as standard treatment.
Avatar n tn like an injection of sumatriptan (some people who do not respond to triptans in general DO respond to sumatriptan injection for some reason) and metoclopramide by IV (this is a stomach medication, an antiemetic, tht for some reason helps with migraines when given by IV). If the sumatriptan injection and the metoclopramide by IV, along with IV fluids (saline) 100mL to 500mL...

768044 tn?1294227036 Imitrex orally disintegrating tablets; Imitrex Injection; Imitrex Nasal Spray). It is important to get a triptan that is either an orally disintegrating tablet or a nasal spray (or in extreme cases an injection) because they work in 10 to 15 minutes for nasal sprays and injections and 30 minutes for orally disintegrating tablet.... but regular tablets take an hour to two hours to work.
Avatar n tn I will say that if I recall correctly maxalt is about half the cost of imitrex tablets or nasal and much less than the injection imitrex units. To help with the withdrawal from caffeine you can use coffee with the meds above but be sure you are lowering your caffeine intake a small amount each week. This may actually be easier using caffeine tablets. If you can find 50 mg tablets you can trim them down 25% for a couple weeks or so and leave your otherwise caffeine intake unchanged.
299940 tn?1192322967 With medicine included, I've spent under $800 out of my own pocket with NO wait time. Surgery probably wouldn't cost more than another $500 - $1000 I'm guessing. If you knew exactly what the problem is, you could bring your MRI and CT scans, could see 1 ENT and 1 neurologist and then push to have it removed, saving you a ton of money. You would pay only around $100 total to see them BOTH! Your biggest expense will be the plane ticket here, about $1200 from the USA if you shop around.
