Yeah that sounds wrong. Call your doctor immediately and tell him what happened. He'll probably prescribe a different migraine medication for you. Answered by Winfred Cederberg 5 months ago.

same here, my muscle aches all over the place. I feel so tired and weak. after i eat, everything slowly goes back to normal(take about 3 hours), my body feels good afterward, no headache. i guess if we don't eat when we take the medicine, it hits you pretty hard Answered by Raylene Brosi 5 months ago.

Can i take asprin and sumatriptan at the same time?
Asked by Delinda Huesso 5 months ago.

Sumatriptan was developed to treat Migraine headaches. Why would you be wanting to take Aspirin at the same time? Answered by Sau Viniard 5 months ago.

Can I take Sumatriptan Succinate tablets after I took Tylenol a half hour ago?
I just got these tablets from the doctor 2 days ago and I have a massive headache right now. I wanted to take the tylenol first to see if it would help because it was only a little headache but now I am in sever pain. Asked by Faustino Juliar 5 months ago.

There is no concrete information on whether or not Imitrex (sumatriptan succinate) and Tylenol (acetaminophen) interact or to what degree they can be taken together. That said, it's better to be safe than sorry and not take the two together. If sumatriptan by itself isn't working to relieve your migraines, ask your doctor about Treximet, which is a combination of sumatriptan and Aleve. However I wouldn't advise taking Aleve after you've taken sumatriptan without first consulting your doctor. Answered by Sophie Chellis 5 months ago.

They recommend that 4 hours elapse between doses of acetominophen. If you took a dose, say 3 1/2 hours ago, it would probably be OK to take another dose now. Indeed, it would probably be OK to take the full recommended dose (2 tablets) unless you have some kind of sensitivity to this medication. If you had taken the full recommended dose 3 hours ago, you might have benefitted more from the medication. See if you can hold out for 3 1/2 to 4 hours between the first dose and the second one that you want to take just to be on the safe side, take the full recommended dose according to the direction on the label, lie down with your legs elevated on a pillow and do something mindless and relaxing, like watching TV. It should help. Answered by Modesta Pall 5 months ago.

No, you have to wait at least 4 hours. Answered by Loria Manolakis 5 months ago.

Is Sumatriptan safe to take with caffeine?
I was prescribed Sumatriptan recently for the constant headaches I've been getting for over a month. I want to know if its safe for me to take it (50mg) then drink a Monster afterwards.

I was prescribed Sumatriptan recently for the constant headaches I've been getting for over a month. I want to know if its safe for me to take it (50mg) then drink a Monster afterwards. I was reading online about common side effects being chest tightness. And I'm not too sure if the sumatriptan x caffeine combination will increase that risk. Especially since I do get chest tightness already when I'm stressed. Do you think its safe to mix those two together? And also I haven't taken any Sumatriptan yet because I'm not too sure about the appropriate time to take it. Should I take it only when my headache is roaring? Like on a scale of 1-10, should I only be taking it 7+? Thank you in advance. Answered by Madonna Bassiti 5 months ago.

The combination of acetaminophen, aspirin, and caffeine was significantly more effective than sumatriptan in the early treatment of migraine, as shown by superiority in summed pain intensity difference, pain relief, pain intensity difference, response, sustained response, relief of associated symptoms, use of rescue medication, disability relief, and global assessments of effectiveness. An additional, larger clinical trial is needed to confirm these results. Answered by Joey Taintor 5 months ago.

Is Sumatriptan Safe Answered by Glinda Brescia 5 months ago.

If you are having regular or prolonged migraines you can chat about migraine protective or prophylactic drugs, which are taken every day. Pizotifen (Sanomigran,) propranolol, and clonidine are the common ones, but carbamazepine and other anticonvulsants are also used. Answered by Sybil Wyman 5 months ago.

I recently started taking Sumatriptan and now I feel really depressed?
I started taking sumaptriptan for migraines a few days ago and now all of a sudden I've been feeling really depressed. could it be the medicine's fault? thank you Asked by Ahmad Sampilo 5 months ago.

That would be a very weird side effect for this drug, because it acts similarly to antidepressants, such as Prozac and Zoloft, by increasing serotonin levels in your brain. If you took it for many days in a row (which should not be done with sumatriptan) you may be experiencing withdrawal symptoms. Sumatriptan should only be used to treat migraines, not prevent them. If you are taking this drug more than 2 or 3 times per week due to excessive migraines, let your doctor know, and he can put you on something to prevent migraines. Answered by Shayna Entwistle 5 months ago.

My doctor prescribed me Sumatriptan after struggling with other medicines to treat my migraines. The first time I took it, I was fine but I didn't take it in time to get rid of my migraine...the second time I took it, it literally made my throat swell and I was rushed to casualty. The 'triptan' medicines should NEVER be taken lightly. As with all medication, there are side effects you don't expect (even if it doesn't say it on the leaflet) because they affect everyone differently. I would definitely stop taking it, go back to your doctor and ask for another medicine. I now take Paramax which is Strong paracetamol and anti-sickness medicine all- in- one. I have it in sachet form because it works quicker for me when I dissolve it and drink it, but you can also get it in tablet form. Anyway, I would stop taking it, and go straight back to your doctor (that's what I did) and try something else. I found it was really trial and error and now I have something that works! Good luck XD Answered by Cinda Mcdale 5 months ago.

Buy generic Imitrex Buy sumatriptan. Can I order imitrex sumatriptan online without prescription?
imitrex sumatriptan 25mg, 50mg, 100mg Asked by Junita Vielman 5 months ago.

In the US, not legally. Imitrex interacts with other drugs and can have serious side effects, so you should definitely see a doctor to get a diagnosis and prescription. It does work well for some types of migraines though. 50 mg usually relieve my migraines in less than an hour. I used to suffer for days. Answered by Anya Nico 5 months ago.

It might get seized at the border, but in any case there is no US-approved generic out, it could be legitimate or just sugar pills. Answered by Elsa Gerlach 5 months ago.
