In Reply to: Imitrex TABLETS...why..are you going to... posted by Luke on December 08, 2000 at 21:59:03:
Until my last cycle, I had never tried an Imitrex injector... WAY too expensive! I received two injectors as a gift during my last cycle. I love them... they work much faster than the tablets do.
On the other hand, I have killed literally hundreds (maybe thousands... who's counting?) of CHs with Imitrex tablets since I first discovered the tablets in 1992. Todd is right... if I take them at the very first sign of a CH, they will kill one completely within about twenty minutes.
Even if I am woken up from a sound sleep with a 7 to 9 Kip scale CH, a 100 mg Imitrex pill will eventually kill it. In this worst-case scenario, it typically takes 40 minutes to an hour to do the job... a few times when I have had a full-on 10 it took up to 90 minutes to work, but so far they have never let me down.
If I was independently wealthy and could buy all the injectors I needed, I would never go back to the pills... but...
Until then, the pills are my mainstay. They are still bankrupting me, but at a much slower rate.
