Imitrex Nasal Spray


Comment from: AALJ13-18on Treatment for 6 months to - 1 year Published: May 15

I started using nasal Imitrex because my nausea made pills hard to keep down. I would recommend trying to understand your warning signs (different for everyone). I take the nasal spray paired with Phenergan (an anti-nausea) as soon as I start having symptoms. To avoid the nasty taste I would advise eating some saltines or drinking some sweet fruit juice if possible.

Always used the pill form of imitrix but with vomiting (from headache) sometimes I’d have to take another dose to be sure I absorbed enough to kill my headache. Last year I started on the nasal imitrix which is awesome (except for the bitter taste in the throat) my husband noted I have a terrible chemical /rubbing alcohol-like odor on my breath after using the nasal Spray. I’ve used it at work a few times, now I’m wondering how many coworkers are perplexed or suspicious of my breath ?? anyone else have terrible chemical breath after using this?
