Hi there fellow CH members. I am a new member, and Im so glad to have found you!
I have been an episodic CH fighter since I was 17 and Im 31 now. I was in remission for 2 years and my headaches just came back last week. I was laid off from my job back in April and I decided to take the summer of and do some travelling, etc. But, I didnt continue my health insurance- stupid move on my part. I went to the doctor last week and she gave a bunch of immitrex injectible cartriges but no syringe. She wrote me a prescription to go to the pharmacy and buy just the immitrex syringe. The pharmacist wouldnt sell me just the syringe without purchasing the medication too. (I broke down in tears at the pharmacy) They dont sell the syringes seperately! Does anyone know where I can obtain these syringes? I heard that the immitrex injectible is pretty effective for CH's. I have tried just about every other drug on the market with no avail. I cant afford much these days either. Any suggestions?
