Expert:  Dr. David replied 28 days ago.

Imigran is sumatriptan for migraines.

caution is advised during pregnancy.

the risks for fetal harm is low based on human studies.

you should definitely let your ob/gyn doctor know you are taking it for your migraines.

do they know you have migraine headaches and that you may take the Imigran?
