Imitrex is excellent but since it has been around for a while it is going generic. The Stat Dose form is already generic in the U.S. and the oral form will go generic here next year (2009). Generic Imitrex has the identical active drug as the brand name. Half of generics are made by the Brand name drug companies.

Canada (and every other country) does not have the U.S.'s new abusive drug patent restrictions therefore Imitrex as a generic is already available there. A quality Canadian pharmacy can get you generic Imitrex at less than half the price of it in the U.S.

Imitrex is the first drug in the class called Triptans. These drugs all use the same mechanism to fight migraine headaches and the Brand name drug manufacturers call them "me too" drugs because they are all use virtually the same chemicals.

Imitrex advertises more than the other Triptans and passes that cost to the consumer, therefore it is one of the most expensive of the Triptans even though it is the oldest.

Other Triptans include: Maxalt, Zomig, Amerge, Axert, Relpax, and Frova

If you cannot use coupons for Imitrex then you might want to try coupons for any of these clones.

Consumer Reports Health has an excellent write-up "Triptans: Summary of affordable alternatives"

The more you know about YOUR SPECIFIC TYPE of migraine then the better you will be able to control it. There is a good information at "Information to help you get proper diagnosis and treatment & live with Migraine"

Good luck! I HATE MIGRAINES!!! :shock:

There are other coupon sites that may be of use to you for coupons, money saving offers etc. Shoot, it's worth a shot to see if you could get them from these sites. you have to answer a few questions but if you have answered them before, be creative and maybe see if a friend would assist you with it.

First and foremost.
Ask your Primary Doctor or Headache Specialist for some samples.

NOTE: I deleted the bad links to coupons listed below. Coupon links rarely stay valid for very long. Here is a place that keeps their medication coupon links updated regularly or possibly

Thank you for contacting SDC

I use Imitrex. Truly appreciate printable coupons offered in the past. Imitrex works. It's expensive, even with insurance. Just wish it is not so hard to get the extra savings when needed. Please consider getting the coupons back on line to use as needed. Thank you for the past savings and look forward to future savings for Imitrex. Appreciat your cooperation in this matter. Sincerely, Patty and Stephanie
