After a 3 year absence of the beast, mine
came back to visit last October. It was the
first and last time I'll ever use that stuff.
You know how we all agree that everyone is
different, not only did Imitrex send the C.H.
I woke up with at a 5 kip to an instant 10 for
45 minutes of hell if it worked at all, if not
2hrs and 45 min of hell, I had daily attacks
instead of every other day when I used to use
Oxygen and Percodan. I know the Percodan didn't
stop headaches but I sure appreciate being able
to make the pain tolerable. The cycle lasted
2 months of daily or should I say nightly attacks.
One night I hurt my shoulder trying to keep my
head from exploding by pushing down on my scalp
with my forearm. You can have my share of Imitrex.
Oh by the way I was also using prednisone at the
time along with oxygen during the attacks.
