Next time it was 160 units. Seems to be helping some but this week isn't good. I am always afraid of to much Imitrex. He took two yesterday morning and just now took one. The pressure usually seems to affect him. When it drops he can usually tell us before it happens. He is a good weather man. Sorry to have rattled but we have been dealing with this for so long. Have been thru all the tests and Dr.s
I guess my question is does anyone have side affects from the imitrex. He is irritatable, fidigety, can't sleep, don't know if its from the ha that has lasted a week or med or both. I feel sorry for him. I just stay busy so I don't add to his problem when he is like this.
