I just got up enough courage to take my first Imitrex injection about 5 minutes ago. I didn't realize until I had opened the pack that there were only 2 REFILLS??? With my insurance it was $30... I get at least a few headaches a week, how can I afford this? I was using the pill without great results so I was given a presc for the pen (after trying multiple pill triptans). The pills at least come with more doses... What should I do? It is important I am able to abort my headaches.

Crohn's (diagnosed in 2006 and currently in remission), severe migraines, Seborrheic Derm., Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome (1994), chronic pain, ulcers/GERD and possibly Fibromyalgia? Medications: Nexium, Pentasa, Percocet and Vicodin as needed, Flintstone Vitamins (my favorite part!), calcium and magnesium supplements, vitamin D once weekly. I follow a low fiber, low residue diet.

I havent taken the injections in a long time but I remember getting more then 2 at a time, but I remember the pen itself came with only 2 but once you get the refills I think you get more but no pen with it....but maybe it has changed since I last took it 5 years ago.
