Sumatriptan Succinate for migraines, jaw pain?
I just took Sumatriptan for my second time to help my migraine go away. The first time I took it, I took it when I started getting the blind spots in my vision. I didn't get a migraine so it worked nicely to prevent it. I did have sharp pains in my jaw, though, everytime I would chew something. I didn't know if it was caused by the Sumatriptan or if it was from something else. So I got a really bad migraine today and decided to take the Sumatriptan again to see if it would help get rid of my migraine. I still have it and my jaw/ear area is veryy sore now. Its causing me a lot of discomfort. I dont know if its the Sumatriptan causing this or something else since I have been sick the past 2 weeks. My question is has any else experienced this? Is this a possible side effect of the medication or probably something else? I read that this medication could cause neck pain but nothing about jaw pain. Sorry this was hard to explain, I hope you can understand it alright.

  OK, first of all, if you have jaw pain, you do not have a migraine- you have a cervicogenic headache. A cervicogenic headache is a headache caused by a misalignment of your head and neck. It can mimic a migraine right down to the nausea and pain behind the eye. However, jaw pain is usually caused by a misalignment of the base of the skull ( called the occiput) and the neck. This can produce pain in the jaw, headaches and grinding of the teeth at night.

I would recommend that you see a chiropractor. They specialize in correcting this type of condition. I will tell you I have corrected 6 people with symptoms like you are describing. However, the recovery time from the headaches depends on where the headache is. If the headache seems to start at the back of the head, the headaches can be stopped pretty quickly. If they are located in the temple region of the head, it will take longer while the jaw realigns itself once the head and neck are put back into alignment.

If you would like further information, please feel free to e-mail me at dare2care@dishmail.net. I would love to be able ot provide you with more information.

I wish you the best

  Sumatriptan succinate is the generic term for the prescription migraine drug Imitrex™. It belongs to the triptan class, which are considered to be among the more effective agents in migraine treatment. It is not a controlled substance.

When will an affordable generic for Imitrex be available?
It is my understanding that Sumatriptan Succinate, sold under the brand name Imitrex®, was patented in 1991.

  According to the FDA, patents on drugs last for 20 years. (Somehow, I thought it was 14 or 17).

My Dr. has recommended that I come off as many of my medications as possible?
He does not write them and he did not want to pull me off of them because he was not the prescribing doctor. I am on Clonazepam.5mg 1daily, Geodon 80 mg twice daily, Metoprolol Succinate Er 50 mg daily, Wellbutrin 300mg daily, Topomax 50 mg twice daily,Mirapex .25mg at night, Rozerem 8mg at 6pm, Ambien CR 12.5 mg at bedtime, Nuvigil 250 mg 1 upon wake up, Sumatriptan Succinate 100mg 1-2 as needed. The conditions that I have are nephrogenic diabetes insipidus, Severe Post Traumatic Stress Disorder ,idiopathic narcolepsy , hypersomnia and sinus tachycardia. I get horrible almost debilitating pains in my legs and when I told my previous Dr. about it he said it was restless Leg syndrome , well I'm on the Mirapex and the pain just continues to get worse. Most of the time when I try to come off a medication the doctor's are unwilling to cooperate, any suggestions?

  you may find it helpful to not switch doctors. i'm guessing that at minimum you have a psychiatrist for the PTSD, and depression, and parkinson's, a medical specialist for your narcolepsy and insomnia, an internist for your diabetes, a cardiologist for your heart problems, a neurologist for your migraines and epilepsy, i think i've got all of them.

you seem to have the misfortune of being diagnosed with problems that require specialists to treat. i'm having trouble figuring out your question - you say your doctor recommends that you come off as many of your medications as possible. that seems like a wise idea - eliminating the nuvigil, rozerem and ambien might just eliminate your narcolepsy and insomnia. it would make sense that the clonazepam could also be stopped as the amount you take is too small to have any therapuetic use. i can't discern if you take the mirapex for parkinsons or restless leg syndrome, or both. while i am not a doctor, it does make sense to eliminate the medications that aren't necessary.

so yes, one of your doctors was wise indeed to recommend eliminating some of your medication. but then at the end you say when you try to come off a medication the doctors are unwilling to cooperate. ....

it seems likely that when you stop taking the medications that are not health-sustaining, you will eliminate a lot of your problems, thus, eliminating the specialists, thus, eliminating the confusion surrounding your medication regime.

or maybe that's not it at all?

  according to the nurses desk reference on my pc it SHOULD be ok to take them together assuming that she hasn't taken anything else. with the problems you say she is having I would call 911 or drive her to a local er just to be safe if she is having a migraine along with the problems you listed she could be having a heart attack, stroke, her blood pressure could be high and at risk for either or the previous. I wouldn't rest well with the answers you get on here. seek medical advice from someone that can evaluate her while in the same room.

  They're ok. It depends on your own risk factor. Your doctor can determine that based on your age, medical history, etc.

Ask your doctor to do blood work. I had migraines for close to 15 years and finally switched to a different neurologist. He did blood work and found that I was low on iron. I'm now on a daily iron supplement together vitamin C to help absorption. This regimen has decreased my migraine frequency from 3 a week to none at all. I am migraine free for 7 months now which is totally amazing.

Taking a vitamin as a preventative is better than taking an emergency triptan drug.

Imigran Injection ( Cluster Headache )?
Hi
I suffer from cluster headaches and yesterday my doctor prescribed me with Imigran ( sumatriptan succinate )

I have taken this yesterday and the side effects were not nice, my head was tingling and my head was really heavy i was struggling to hold it up, i was also having hot flushes and and my throat felt like it was burning..... My question is has anyone ever taken this injection and do the side effects get better when your body gets used to the medication?

Any other experiences anyone has had with this would be grateful

Thanks in advance

  Hi,

These are common side effects. You might be interested to read the conversation about side effects (and to explore the forum for cluster headache sufferers) here:

http://www.clusterheadaches.com/cgi-bin/yabb/YaBB.cgi?board=meds;action=display;num=1190068904

One common trick to limit the side effects is to take less than a full injection of imigran/imitrex (same drug, different name depending on which country you're in). The method is outlined here:

Good luck, and may you get this thing under control!

allergic reaction or normal side effect? ?
I was just recently prescribed the sumatriptan succinate injection for severe Migraines.

I injected it into my thigh, following the directions.

After I injected it then I got really dizzy, a tingly/burning feeling in my nose, and felt a bit nauseous.

I was reading the pamphlet that came in the box and it said it might be red and sore at the injection site for about an hour.

I injected it about 10 hours ago, yet it still hurts terribly.
It hurts to walk, and it hurts to put the slightest pressure on it.

I dont bruise easily, and have never had this happen with shots before.

What could causing it to be so painful?

Is Doxylamine Succinate (25mg) safe?
Been taking Unisom tabs which contains doxylamine succinate 25mg? Love my sleep now but is it bad to take 1/2 a pill per every evening?

  If half a pill works for you I would say thats good. Those pills never worked for me and my doctor ended up prescribing me ambien, which works amazing. I have to take ambien everyday and its a lot stronger than unisom so i don't see why it wouldn't be safe its a fairly low dose.

I injected it yesterday and today it is still sore as well as a black and clue bruise all around the injection site. I do not bruise easly and this has never happened with shots before.

has anyone else had this problem? is there something I can do to reduce the pain while injecting the medicine and keep it from bruising?

  hello,
Other than telling you to call your doctor, the thigh hurts the most. ask your doc. if you can inject it into your buttock. if so, imagine each individual buttock is divided into quarters, or imagine 4 circles touching each other in a square pattern. The upper, outer quarter, or outer, upper circle (towards your side, not your spine) is the “safe spot” to avoid other important structures like nerves or large blood vessels. Remember the idea is to inject into the thickest part of the muscle, so feel around within the selected area for a thick place and avoid areas that feel “shallow” or close to bone.
but never int he same spot two times in a row.
as far as your medicine, here is some info.
they also have a nasal spray and a pill.
some side effects, are Injected sumatriptan may cause the following side effects:

Flushing
Tingling
Dizziness
A feeling of warmth or coldness
Burning at the injection site

However, this should not be used in conjunction with certain antidepressants. only use when needed, taking too often will cause the headaches to hurt worse when it wears off.

But most importantly,
Do callyour doc. it shouldnt hurt for this long. but if its the first time expect your body to not be used to it.
Good luck,
Try some stress relievers like yoga or meditation, a nice bath, compresses on your head,etc.
I hope you feel better.
Sincerely,
Lanora

SLEEP HELP - can i buy DOXYLAMINE SUCCINATE [antihistimine]??????????????????
sometimes i take Vick's NYQUIL when im sick, and it has Doxylamine Succinate in it, which basically puts me out like a light the second i lay on my bed.

Im sick, and i saw that benadryl has diphenhydramine hydrochloride and nyquil has doxylamine succinate...can i take them both? They're both antihistamines...
sandybars

Reply
  Are you taking the benadryl to help you sleep or to relieve your congestion? You really only need one or the other, not both. Just take the Nyquil, but be aware that it contains acetaminophen (tylenol), which can be VERY DANGEROUS if you overdose. Don't take anything else that has acetaminophen if you're taking Nyquil. It's also very important to stay hydrated when you're congested; it'll help things clear out faster.

I hope you feel better soon!

METOPROLOL ER SUCCINATE 100MG?
my mom is going from 50mg of Metoprolol Tartrate (1/2 tab bid) to 100mg Metoprolol ER Succinate; her lisinopril also increased from 5mg to 10mg qd; Going up that much on the Metoprolol scares me, can I cut the Metoprolol ER tabs in half since they are extended release?? Her regular doctor did not change her hypertension meds, her neurologist did because I told him her BP had been high and headaches were frequent. Cant get in with regular Dr until July. Thanks.
Her BP was 148/95, it wasnt bad the day she went in. When we had checked it at home a few times it was 2??/1??, when she was having head aches.

  I'm not sure why you are second guessing the doctor, he/she did graduate medical school after all, right? I went from 20-40mg of lisinopril recently, and apart from feeling a bit tired for a few days, I came out all right. Don't break metoprolol XL in half--I take the 50mg tabs, and it has a sticker that says not to break in half. If you think the dosage increase is too drastic, discuss it with your doctor or pharmacist.

Will I be alright taking Metoprolol Succinate, Clonazepam, Zoloft, and Prilosec together?
I am currently taking 25mgs of Zoloft, 50mgs of Metoprolol Succinate, 20mgs of Prilosec, and 0.5mgs of Clonazepam daily. I was wondering if it is safe to be taking these medicines together, and would I have any long term effects from doing so? I am 38 year old male with chronic anxiety. I also have a rare genetic heart disorder called Brugada Syndrome. Although I have an Implanted ICD. It has never fired during the 6 years I've had it. I also have gerd, IBS, and Asthma.

  Yes, if both prescribed by the same physician. They don'y "interact" physically with each other, but they can cause a decrease in your blood pressure. So always make sure both are prescribed by the same person so he/she can continue to monitor.
