Hi: My mom just got her clusters back after 15 years!! She had cataracts removed and I guess the surgury started them up again. Back 15 years ago they didn't have any of these drugs. Imitrex is SOOOOOOOO can they do that? As of now she takes 25mg about 3 times a day..sometimes 4. To help with this cost i buy 50mg tabs and cut them in 1/2..I am thinking of buying 100mgs and cut into 4's. How come insurance Company's have such crappy Drug reimbursments for Imitrex? It is SOOOOOO frustrating...I bet they pay all the meds for regular migrane meds!!! I just can't believe it. We are off to a neurosurgury Doc. Hopefully she can get on something cheaper and more preventive....I PREY EVERY NIGHT FOR THIS..! Any other helpful hints out there? Has anyone purchased these drugs out of the country or internet to save money?
