There is another Triptan, similar to Imitrex/Imigran that is probably better suited for preventative usage:
Naratriptan (Amerge in the USA, Naramig most elsewhere). Amerge/Naramig is rather slow to kick in (therefore not very suitable as an abortive), but it lasts with 6 - 8 hours much longer than Imitrex/Imigran.
Some people get full protection for the whole day with just 2 tablets, if necessary broken in half for more even spacing.
I take half of a 2.5 mg tablet before bed time, and that keeps away the night time attacks most of the time.
