Dear Doug,
If you write Galaxo Wlecome and get the Doctors print out of the
directions and percautions or a Currant Pdr ( phyicans desk refferance)
you will find to many warnings about, Hypertention, unstable angina,
family caridac history, uncontrolled bloodpressure, stroke, heart
attack, even with people who show NO sign of Vascular, Cardica,
Hypertension, what so ever that have DIED or had a Massive stoke from
injections of Immatrex. Trex was not exactly made for long term use such
as in Clusterheadace suffers where long term, multiple times a day for
extenced periods of time are required.

As you may or may not know I have opted for the safer Opaite
theapty soultion, the only resonable choice for a Chronic headace suffer
such as I. I am an extreme case. But I have tried to warn folks the
Drawbacks of the Triptan class of Meds. I will survive the headache but
will I survive the abortive? Thats is question every Clusterheadache
sufferer sould ponder befoe cocking the injector.

Thanks for your time
P.S. You should go to the library and look up all the med your are
currently takeing, they have PDR's to read for free, they cost about
$250.00 and go into complete DETAIL of the do's and dont's you could be
very horrorfiyed about what they aren't telling you. It is YOUR job to
know what you putting into your body.
