If you go to http://www.glaxowellcome.com, (the link is below), and then click on (Product Information) on the left of that web-site. Then scroll down to (List of Selected Glaxo Wellcome products) and click on that. Then scroll down to (Central Nervous System) and click on (Imitrex-Sumatrptan Succinate Injection) you will find the information “packet” that comes inside an Imitrex injection kit. It contains side effects as well as a WARNING for patients over 40 years of age that use Imitrex injections. Basically there are cardiovascular concerns with these patients. I'm not a doctor. I'm 36 and I use Imitrex injections as an abortive medicine for my Cluster Headaches. I have not experienced chest pains when taking an injection. Hope this helps your friend.
