    I had an EKG BEFORE he diagnosed the Fibro, which is what I have, KLutzo. That and osteoarthritis in knees and ankles.

    I didn't have any reaction to the Imetrex except instant relief! After over a week of major pain and a Blow Out on Wednesday night, (complete with vomitting and all, sorry, no ladylike way to say that) I was extremely overjoyed.

    Sorry to hear that you have had such a bad experience with this. I read the warnings and saw that it was possible, along with a whole bunch of others, but after I took it, I just sat with my son watching TV for about an hour or so and mentally monitored my body for ANY type of reaction. Thankfully I had none! =)

    glad you had good results with it. A few of my friends take it and swear by it. When I have a migraine they all say here take this.
    No thanks one heart attack is enough for this girl.
    I never want to have the real thing.

    and studies show that though 25mg is not very effective, 50 mg seems to be as effective as 100mg. So cut those precious babies in half! I don't know how I would get through some days without the imitrex, but I do get rebound headaches sometimes. There is supposed to be a new migraine drug that doesn't cause rebound. Can't remember the name--which, as most of you know, isn't surprising for a fibro survivor. (-;
