I was taking up to 18 of the treximet or imitrex per month depending on how bad a month I was having. Recently I had a heart attack/vaso spasm. Other than high cholestorol (no plaque buildup), they were unable to find anything that would have caused it, so they attributed it to the meds. However, I had not taken either of them in 5 days. I was still taking the 25mg of topamax at night, but I can’t find anything that lists cardiac as a side effect.
I saw my neurologist for my botox and he said he does not think it’s possible for the triptans to be the cause that far out.
I made an appt for a 2nd opinion. I’ve also completely changed how I’m eating and had started getting botox about a month before the heart attack. My migraines are thankfully under control at this point.
Has anyone heard of this happening 5 days out from taking the meds?
