Sorry to hear that news, Riccardo, but it prompts me to offer the following.
Three neurologists have emphatically warned me against using imitrex, primarily because of my 45 year history of smoking, which I continue to do to this day. I have such bad circulation, I look like a friggin' albino when the weather turns cold. And whenever I read a message about the wonders of imitrex, I develop a bad case of IE -- Imitrex Envy!
All this is a cautionary warning to you yongsters who think you're not compromising your heart, and your health in general, by smoking. You are, and your days of depending on imitrex might be numbered because of it.
I have to quit! Soooooo if anyone out there wants to join me, e-mail me, because I'm going to need all the support and commisseration I can get. Needless to say, I expect the response to zero.
And please, this is all in the spirit of IMHO and "for what it's worth," okay. I chastize not, nor do I judge!
