Imitrex comes in tablets, nasal inhaler,6mg single dose autoject (I know you already know this :>) ) AND 6mg single dose vials (5 vial pack). These single dose vials are 6mg in .5ml solution. I use a tuburculan syringe and draw .17ml for 2mg and .25ml for 3mg of Imitrex. I read all of the "fine print" on the sheet that came with the autoject and under "how supplied" it told about these. I suggested to my dr. that I'd like to try this so I can try the 2mg dose that was recommended in the "tip". My insurance wouldn't cover the injectable through the regular pharmacy but would cover 80/20 through Home Health Care:Infusion Therapy. I will be paying about $25. per vial but if I can get 3 doses from it (and without the "jerrying")... I asked if anyone had experience with this about 2 wks ago but got no response... One nice thing is that I don't get "slammed" like with the autoject and no burning red reaction. I hope this helps others, I just assumed that others were already doing this. Let me know if you want more info.
