For Migraine "I LOVE this product ( the nasal imtrex) . I used to vomit terribly with the oral sumatriptan on top of getting very tired and also get rebound headaches. This works in about 9 mins and I get pain free sign no side effects!"

For Migraine "Imitrex nasal sprays changed my life. I developed migraines when I was about 13 years old. At that time the doctor would simply prescribe pain killers for treatment, but they did nothing. They only helped me sleep for a few hours and then I would wake back up to the headache again. After seeing a neurologist I was prescribed Imitrex. I have tried all three forms of the medication, the pills did not work as well for me because I always vomit with a migraine. I simply did not get enough doses with the injections to last a month, only two in a prescription. But with the nasal sprays, I receive 6 each month and they work GREAT."

For Cluster Headaches "Works in about 15 minutes for me which is about twice as fast as the pill form. Creates a bad taste but well worth it for the faster speed."

For Migraine "The injections always work for me. The nasal spray? Terrible at best. First time bloody nose with zero pain reduction and second time zero pain reduction. I just threw away a years worth."
