Buy Generic Imitrex
The choice of the drug for the treatment of migraine is a difficult task, as it depends on the concomitant pathologies, severity of disease, drug interactions and patient’s individual characteristics. A migraine attack will stop even without treatment, but it can take many hours (or even days).
In order to get the right diagnosis, choose the right medicine and get quality assistance, you should visit a neurologist.
Indications for use
Imitrex is intended for the treatment of migraine (with or without aura). Take Imitrex only if a clear diagnosis of migraine has been established.
The drug is not intended for prevention of migraine.
Route of administration and dosage
Take Imitrex as soon as a migraine starts. If the first dose of Imitrex doesn’t work, stop taking the drug. In this case, you can use paracetamol, acetylsalicylic acid or NSAIDs for prevention of migraine attacks.
However, you can also use Imitrex to avert migraine attacks. For example, if you feel better after the first dose of the drug, and then the symptoms return, you can take the second one within the next 24 hours (note that the interval between the doses should be at least two hours).
The pills must be swallowed whole with water. Start taking Imitrex as soon as a migraine starts.
The recommended dose of Imitrex is 50 mg (if necessary, it can be increased to 100 mg). The maximum daily dose is 300 mg.
