I don't have the HAs around here Julie, but since
no one has answered you, I'll take a stab at it (intended).

Posts above talk about "tightening of the chest".
If you ask my husband how it feels he'll say, "Like
I might have a heart attack!" Other times he refers
to it as a "rush". It's a serious vasal constrictor.
Shouldn't be any problems if no heart disease...but
husband describes it as distinctly "unpleasant".

However, I'm talking about 6mg auto-injector. He says
the smaller dose (imitrex tip) reduces those feelings.
And, I don't think the pills or nasal have quite as
much affect; but alas they don't work for him...I think
he waits too long to take.
