Your doctor needs to contact the insurance company any tell them that the Imitrex injection is 'medically necessary' and why. Sometimes works.
Note: Per Glaxo-Wellcome's prescribing information sheets, only the injection is indicated for clusterheadaches.... the tablets and nasal spray are not. The doctor might have to point that out to the insurance company too.
Also, many insurance companies require that you have tried certain other drugs that did not work, before they will pay for Imitrex.
