I know the triptans can cause a tight throat feeling in some people. I am one of those people. Has anyone who also gets this side effect found a triptan that doesn’t do it? Or does it much less?
Naratriptan did it the most for me (plus a tight jaw as well), however it worked great and killed the migraine every time and it wouldn’t come back for 12-14 days.
The doctor suggested Relpax to see if it had less side effects. But Relpax is also giving me the throat tightening. Maybe a little bit less? It kills the migraine quickly, however the migraine ends up coming back the next day for one more day. (I have two migraines per month, 2-3 days each time. Hormones.)
Sumatriptan just didn’t work and felt terrible.
