I am on sumatriptan aka imitrex as well as Prozac and Cymbalta but they warn me of serotonin syndrome. Is there another medication that works better? I take imitrex daily! My drs haven’t been able to find anything else that works like this medication does for my pain but I’m worried of the side effects.

      I've been on imitrex for 30 years (since it first came out in injection only format). It may be a combination effect that they warn you about, but simply using imitrex long term has not been an issue for me. I used ut 50% of the time until 2002 and then daily AC chemo helped migraines but then a single "monthly" Lupron shot brought them back continuous if i didnt use imitrex, so ive been using it at least daily since. 3x a day after 2020 surgery for several months until the body calmed back down to 1x after vestibular migraine eye movement physical therapy.
