In Reply to: Imitrex, for clusters? Read this. posted by NicholasD on February 29, 2000 at 14:25:59:

so I can't call you dumbass.

Do you even read what you post?

"Patients with risk factors for heart disease (such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, obesity, diabetes, smoking, strong family history of heart disease, or are postmenopausal or a male over 40) should be evaluated by a physician to determine if Imitrex is appropriate therapy."

Please explain to everyone you have now worried the living heck out of just where in there you see that men over 40 can't or shouldn't take Imitrex???? Does the word 'evaluated' have any meaning to you?

Do you have any comprehension whatsoever of how the FDA drug approval process works and what the dangers of litigation are? Dumb question, why do I ask these things?

Allow me to attempt to educate you, in the (likely futile) hope that you will cease your unending dissemination of inaccurate information.

A drug company cannot (repeat NOT) claim efficacy of a drug unless it has gone through clinical trials and has been approved by the FDA. NO WHERE does it say that Imitrex is contra-indicated for clusters, merely that it's efficacy has not been proven.

Get real and grow up. If you don't know what you're talking about, don't post. False information can be extremely harmful.
