What Happens When You Give Imitrex Im Instead Of Subcu

Answer

MUSCOY,

The reason Imitrex is not to be give IV is that it can cause blood vessels in the heart to spasm if injected IV. The STATDose injector has a very short needle for injecting under the skin (subcutaneously).

If you have somehow mistakenly injected Imitrex IV, please call your docotr or the closest emergency room for advice.
