1) He buys it.

2) Not true. My doc (a highly-respected neuro) prescribes as much as I need. Besides, there is more than one Internet prescription drug source where it is possible to buy Imitrex (and other stuff) without a prescription.

3) Heart attack? Bullshit. Imitrex is perfectly safe for the vast majority of people. If Imitrex is going to aggravate a pre-existing heart condition, it will do so with a single shot. But if you don't have a heart problem, Imitrex won't give you one. If you are one of the vast majority who has no interactions from it, you can take it all day long. I routinely eat four to five 100 mg pills daily for months at a time. Gets expensive as hell, since I have no health insurance and must buy ALL my meds at full price, but it has done nothing to harm my heart, according to a recent EKG.

As for the amount of shots, it is possible he is using the "stretch" method... injecting 2 mg each time, thus getting three hits from each syringe. Many people use this method.
