A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.
The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.
Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.
The Imitrex Statdose injection is a prescription migraine headache medication that provides fast migraine pain relief along with reducing the sensitivity to light and sound that is also a primary symptom of migraine headaches. The Statdose injection is a fast-acting migraine relief medication because of the way it is administered subcutaneously and directly into the bloodstream, working fast to regulate serotonin levels so that blood vessels in the brain are less narrowed when a migraine headache comes on. This narrowing is what causes migraine headache pain and for some users the Statdose injection may be more effective than other migraine pain treatment approaches.
You can buy Imitrex Statdose with a prescription, and your best price on it will be when you order medication online from Canada Pharmacy.
The standard dosage guideline for the Imitrex Statdose pen is to administer 1 injection as soon as the user identifies the beginning of a migraine headache. Your doctor may advise differently, and always take this medication exactly as indicated in your prescription.
Suitable injection sites are the upper thighs, abdomen (excluding a 2” radius around navel), or back of upper arms
Confirm medication in Imitrex Statdose pen is clear and not cloudy or containing particles before administering the injection
Check to make sure the white priming rod is not sticking out from the lower end of the pen. If it is sticking out, put Statdose pen back into carry case and press down firmly until you feel it click.
Put the pen in the open cartridge pack and turn it to the right (clockwise) until it will not turn further
Hold the loaded pen by the ridges and pull it straight out of the pack
Wipe the injection site with an alcohol swab
Without pushing the blue button, press the loaded Imitrex Statdose pen firmly against the skin so that the grey part of the barrel slides against the blue part and cannot be pressed any further. Maintaining this contact will release the safety catch
Press and hold down blue button to deliver injection, and keep it down for 5 seconds to ensure entirety of dose is injected
Pull pen aways from skin and do not touch needle. Replace needle cap and dispose of pen properly.
