Imitrex for migraines
My sister passed away last July at 38.  Perfectly healthy except for migraines which she was taking imitrex for.  I believe taking this is related to her death and wonder if anyone else has thoughts on this. Thanks.

Hi!
I am so sorry to hear about your loss. Actually, imitrex is a very common drug used for migraine headaches. Also, it is very effective. However, since it causes narrowing of blood vessels, it is to be avoided or used with caution in patients with any heart, liver, kidney or any ischemic brain disease or ischemic gut disease. It is very difficult to say whether imitrex resulted in your sister's death.
I am so sorry again! Take care!
