Imigran injections

Anyone else having difficulty obtaining Imigran? I am told that there are manufacturing problems. Is there an alternative?

Hi Rob,

Imigran itself does appear to be in short supply, but if your prescription says “Sumatriptan Injections” your pharmacy can order the Sun Pharma ones.  These are often easier to use than Imigran as you do not need to load each injection, it is already to go for you.  If your prescription states”Imigran Injections”ask your GP to change it as the Pharmacist has to give you exactly what is on the prescription!

hope this helps
