...there are no studies on the long term use of Imitrex. One should be careful if there is a history of any heart problems though. There is a higher risk if one smokes and uses Imitrex. (Actually, there's a higher risk with just about everything and smoking).
Anyway, I get my heart checked every so often as well as my cholesteral. If you are in the over 40 age group I believe there is a higher risk too. I use the "Imitrex tip" which you can click on at the left of this message board.
There is a great deal of information in the little piece of paper that came with your Imitrex that tells about smoking and age and everything else, that you may want to read.
Hope this helps.
