What is a Generic Drug?

A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.

The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.

Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.


Imitrex is a prescription migraine headache treatment nasal spray that provides fast migraine pain relief along with reducing the sensitivity to light and sound that is also a primary symptom of migraine headaches. Imitrex is a fast-acting migraine relief medication because of the way it is administered through the sinuses, and it works by regulating serotonin levels so that blood vessels in the brain are not as narrowed when a migraine headache onset. This narrowing of blood vessels is what causes migraine headache pain and for some users it may be more effective than other pain medications they have tried.

You can buy Imitrex nasal spray with a doctor's prescription, and your best price on it will be when you order medication online from Canada Drugs Direct.


The standard Imitrex nasal dosage is one spray into both nostrils administered when the user identifies the beginning of a migraine headache. Your doctor may advise you differently, and always take this medication exactly as indicated in your prescription.

Imitrex nasal spray instructions:

Gently blow nose to clear out nostril before administering Imitrex.

Hold spray bottle tip into nostril and use index finger of other hand to close the opposite nostril. Then squeeze spray bottle to spray medication into one nostril, inhaling forcefully through the one nostril as the medication enters it. Avoid spraying into your eyes.

Tilt your head back for a few seconds to keep the medicine from dripping out of your nose.

Repeat the above process for the other nostril.

If migraine pain relief medication is ineffective you may take a follow-up dose of Imitrex migraine spray but be sure to wait at least 1-2 hours before doing so.


The active ingredient in Imitrex is Sumatriptan.


Tell your doctor if you have any history of heart disease, blood circulation problems, hemiplegic or basilar migraine headaches, heart problems like chest pain, irregular heartbeat, or previous heart attack), liver disease, seizure, stroke or transient ischemic attack, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, being overweight, or if you smoke cigarettes before beginning on Imitrex.

This medication may make your dizzy or drowsy.

Older adults may be more susceptible to Imitrex side effects, especially increased blood pressure and potential cardiac health issues.

Women who are pregnant or breast feeding should only use Imitrex for migraine pain if approved to do so by their doctor


There is the possibility of drug interaction risks between Imitrex and other Rx medications, including isocarboxazid, linezolid, methylene blue, moclobemide, phenelzine, procarbazine, rasagiline, safinamide, selegiline, tranylcypromine, fluoxetine/paroxetine, duloxetine/venlafaxine, and ergotamine medications like dihydroergotamine or triptan drugs like zolmitriptan and rizatriptan.
