I have begun having cluster migraines. I don't particularly like the warning lable on this drug even though I don't have any heart problems. Can't take NSAIDs of course, can't tolerate straight Tylenol either. The only thing that works for me is Percocet (which has Tylenol in it)!? I have had hormonal migraines for the last ten years which start one day before my period and last 3-4 days into that lovely week. I also have the occasional sinus migraine.
Within the last three months (no new drug changes) I started having the cluster migraines at 5:00 in the evening. You could set your watch by it. The imuran I'm on I take at night because it gives me headaches too. I thought the "new" cluster headaches maybe had to do with dosage times of the other drugs I take but the Dr. thinks not.
What is your experience with the Imitrex and your Crohns or any other side effects you may have with the Imitrex? Having a lovely migraine tonight, but I grabbed my trusty Percocet after reading the Imitrex package insert.

Attitude: When I stand before G-D at the end of my life, I want to be able to say; I used every talent you gave me in a positive way to help others along their way!
