The doctor gave me an Imitrex injection and it was a miracle. 15 minutes later I walked out of the office with absolutely no headache. I use the nasal spray today and it takes about 30 minutes to work but it is great.
I just wanted to let the original poster know that Imitrex is available as a pill, an orally disintegrating tablet, nasal spray and as an injection.
There are plenty of other triptan drugs to try if you don't find that you like Imitrex too. They all work in a similar way but many people have different reactions to each.
