Hi there. I have had migraines of different sorts for 30 years and the last 15 or so I’ve managed them with triptans. Last year however, I had a very minor heart attack, caused by a small blockage, put down to stress, and had a stent insterted.
I’ve changed my lifestyle and have far fewer headaches, and the ‘low-level’ migraines are now held off by beta-blockers, but once a month I get a doozy which has me in bed for 4 days with head, neck and facial pain. I’m certain a triptan would help, but have been told I can’t take them because I’m now classified as a ‘cardiac patient’.
Does anyone have any experience of triptans with a cardiac stent?
