... prescribed this medication for my migrains. I took this medication for years and one day it interrupted the rythem of my heart and stopped it. It took paramedics 20 minutes of cpr and using shock treatments to get a heart beat. Has this happened to anyone or does anyone know about any cases like mine?
I also had some trouble with Imitrex injections. My heart rate and blood pressure went extremely high and I had to be hospitalized to get it down. Unfortunately it is a risk of taking Imitrex and meds like it like Maxalt as well. I am glad they got you back with us and I hope all is well with your heart now, unfortunately I have an aneurysm which is label as an atrial/septal defect. Good luck and find something safer for the migraines. marjorie zych
