A new study indicated that many(18%) of migraine patients with higher risk for cardiovascular problems take triptans(Imitrex, Maxalt, Zomig, etc)…..Generally, over 25 years, in 300 million patients, these have been safe drugs; there is a newer one possibly coming, Lasmitidan, that is very “selective”: it does not affect the coronary(heart) arteries at all. This will have a nice niche, but in general triptans have been safe drugs; the stronger form, sumatriptan injections, does temporarily constrict(shrink) the heart arteries 17%; with risk factors, we generally do not use the injections…..
