I'm seeing my doctor in the next couple days. She believes whole heattedly in what clusters do (but is also in the trap of equating clusters with migraines)

Anyway, I've found injectable imitrex to be a god send. The problem is in getting enough refills to deal with them. For 2 nights in a row I've had to call the doctor on call for refills. They give them, but, it's easily an hour between the time I call them and get to the pharmacy to get my refill vials. As y'all know, this is too long.

My question is, how can I approach her in a way so I can get them on demand? I realize that one dose a seek is cool for migraines, but I'm getting clusters from 1 to 3 times a day, and I need to stay functional at work.

Any suggestions?
