A question for any males who take Sumatriptan for migraines-
Have you experienced any other changes or medical conditions since starting sumatriptan?
After a few years taking the generic Imitrex (sumatriptan) I started to get tinnitus (ringing in the ears). It has gotten worse as time passes, and I notice that after an injection and I want to sleep the ringing gets louder.
I have also developed ED. That is the condition that really gets me because I’ve always been very active sexually. Now I find I’m the one who “isn’t in the mood”. A prescription of Viagra has helped, but it also causes me another migraine the next morning.
I never had any issues while taking Imitrex for almost 12 years, but after insurance forced me to take the generic or pay big bucks for Imitrex what choice does one have?
Any information from other males would be appreciated. Thanks for reading!
