This is my way of introducing myself.
I am a migraine sufferer, have been for 20 years.
I am having better success with aborting and preventing my migraines, by sucking on, for as long as I can on 25mgs of Sumatriptan to abort the Migraine and taking 10mg of Flexeril (Cyclobenzaprine, muscle relaxer) at bed time to prevent the migraine.
After all my research on my Migraines, they are caused by the underlying condition, Occipital neuralgia.
A search for answers to a Sumatriptan shortage got me here.
I have a Facebook Migraine page to help others. I sell NOTHING and I will not allow anyone to promote any site or product. "Migraines101"
Yep there is a MYLAN Sumatriptan 100mg shortage in the 60016 area.
There is however other brands available like "Dr. Reddy's" and "Aurobindo (which I have)".
I am finding that I have to take almost twice the dose for the same relief as the Mylan brand.
Dr Reddy's and Aurobindo are India companies. Mylan is based in the U.S.
I spent 1+ hours trying to locate a pharmacy that has and carries the Mylan brand, with no luck.
I just communicated with Mylan to see if there is a Pharmacy in my area and If there is indeed a shortage. I am waiting their reply.
No one wants to suffer longer than we have to with a Migraine and taking twice the dose at twice the price is not what I want to do, but I will have to for the time being.
I wish you Migraineurs the best of luck.
All my Luv.
