migraines and Imitrex

For those who wonder about something if you you take Imitrex, there is a new way to administer it into your body.

There are needless shots called suvenal (sp) and you can inject it in your stomach, thighs, hips. It does hurt and you have to wait 10 seconds after the injection to make sure the medicine is dissolved. It takes about 5 minutes for the medicine to work rather than the tablets taking about 30-45 minutes to work.

I know because my TMJ/headache doc started giving them to me rather than giving me the ones with needles.

just thought those with migraines with szs might want to know,
