In Reply to: Use of Imitrex with previous sulfa drug allergy-anyone? posted by Dan C. on April 17, 2001 at 13:32:30:
I haven't any info about the Imitrex - Sulfa allergy. Just wondered if you have tried checking with another pharmacist or even checking on-line to see what you can find. Rite-Aid has a phone number you can call 24 hours a day to ask questions, 1-800-Rite-Aid. You can also email questions to them from their website, which I will try to link below. You can get info as well from the PDR which is also online, or the library might have it. If it all checks out, call the doc back and tell him you want the Imitrex and you want it called into...(give a different pharmacy name.) Or, ask your doc if you can try the imitrex in his office.
As for the Zomig, I tried that before and had some very odd side effects as well. My face and mouth went numb and I too felt very hot and just ill in general. Did nothing for the ch either.
I wish you well. Let us know what you find out.
Peace and love,
