Sumitriptan injections

Hi there, just wondering if anyone is having trouble getting hold of Sumitriptan injections? Oxford seems to be running dry and I'm a bit worried as they are a life saver.

If you go to a lloyds chemist they only give out imigran just you have to give them 24 hrs.  Never had a problem with supply from them.  I agree boots where useless that is why I changed.

Hello I was informed that the Sun Pharmacutical factory in India has been closed since that start of this year and due to re-open next February. I have had problems with some chemists who insist the prescription is changed from Sumatriptan injections to Imigran or they refuse to order or dispense. This probably due to higher costs albeit small.
