Does anyone know how long it takes from Imitrex to wear off or leave your body?
I'm in the process of breaking a bad rebound pattern and have noticed a new pattern. As I've reduced my consumption, my migraines have decreased.
I average about once a week now (as opposed to running out of pills each month) and have noticed that I always have a follow up mid-day headache the day after taking an Imitrex.
If I ride this headache out, I wake up fine the next day and have several consecutive migraine free days.
The migraines I've had lately are also less severe - though it's hard to say if that's from less Imitrex, improved sleep/diet, luck or some combination of everything.
I'm wondering what I'm going through physiologically as I ween myself from sustained triptan usage?
