    Allergy to triptans?

    I use 3mg of sumatriptan (Zembrace) as an abortive medication. Although the side effects have always been ugly- anxiety, chest pain, shortness of breath, and that terrible feeling of blood vessels constricting... tonight for the first time I had an immediate side effect of itching. While itchiness is not a true allergic reaction, I'm worried I'm developing an allergy to my only effective abortive med. My boyfriend is a physician luckily, and he scanned me top to bottom and only noticed maybe 2 hives. but no airway occlusion, no signs or symptoms of anaphylaxis. Has anyone else developed a sensitivity to sumatriptan? TIA
