Hi,

Welcome to JA and thanks for this question. Im sorry to hear about your daughter. Actually imitrex does have a lot of data behind it to support its safe use during pregnancy, and it has been used safely in pregnancy for management of migraine. However as always sumitriptan is only used if the pain is not responding to OTC tylenol or even ibuprofen. But studies show that its use did NOT increase any incidence of birth defects in the baby.

Do you have any more questions?

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
