The Swiss Headache Society had last Friday a get-together and they had a public consultation hour where half a dozen top notch neuros answered questions from the public. Of course, most of the 200 visitors were migrainers, but nevertheless, my sister and I were able to disseminate the fact that there is an affliction worse than migraine, and the panel agreed on this.

But to come back to the title of the post: Someone ask if it is save for people with heart disease to take Imigran (Imitrex) and the answer was: Yes, and Glaxo did a lot of test to make sure. Now, this applies to migrainers with a much smaller consumption of Imigran than CHeads. But if your doc does not want to rx Imigran because of a heart condition, I would suggest that you contact Glaxo directly and ask if they have some data about this (and report it on the board).
