if it’s not responding to medication it’s time to contact your doctor. Do not take more medication than Rx’d. I also get migraines.

It is not safe to take it more than twice in 24 hours.  You can get some very nasty side effects.  If it’s not working at this point, more will not help!

Go see a neurologist. Sometimes you need to try there or four treatments till you find one that works for your migraines. Imitrex did nothing for me. I ended up on topamax and it’s been very effective.

a third dose of imitrex so soon would probably be okay but you do risk seizure and worse if it’s not okay.

I used to take imitrex and right after I took it , my migraines got worse. Try Relpax.

I know my Fiance has BAD migraines (they are the worst, he gets so sick!) But the only thing that really works for his is the migraine shot they can give you at the ER. He has tried alot of stuff but nothing works for him like the shots do! if you are suffering, go down to the ER and they will give you a shot and within 20 minutes you feel alot better. 

Im sorry you have to deal with migraines… *hugs

I took imitex, Maxalt, and Relpax… nothing worked well enough untill i found my homeopathic stuff.  They are inflammation and Migramed drops.  Taken every 20 minutes until your symptoms go away.  

I was a sceptic until i tried them.

I went through 3-4 medications before I found one that works every time: Zomig. It works wonders, but gives me a sore throat. Unfortunately, that’s all you can do: try, try again.

Rebound migraines are the worst!  I’m on Frova – it’s a triptan, and works great.  Alot of other meds gave me heart palpatations (Imitrex, topamax, replax, and maxalt were four of those).  But def don’t take another dose – it sounds like its time for the ER.  Sorry!

Sorry to hear about your migraines, I know how they can be.  I tried every thing, Relpax, imitrex and cataflan.  Before I took the Imitrex pills now I use the spray and it works really well.  If the migraine is already in progress i take 2 excedrin and then the spray that usually helps alot.

After imitrex stopped helping me I switched to Treximet which is basically imitrex and something else- it is a miracle drug.  For a quick but painful fix sumavel dose pro (air shot hurts  for 10 seconds but makes migraine go away within 10-15 minutes). Good luck!

Ps I took topamax for awhile and I regularly lost feeling in my hands (forgot that could be a side effect and thought I had a brain tumor lol) and forgot the way to my best friends house mid route.  Scary side effects.  Not for everyone but definitely did not work for me- too many cognitive issues
