In brief: This is critical

If you become pregnant, and then take Imitrex for your headaches, you have high risk of miscarriage.
So, triptans are totally verboten (forbidden) during pregnancy. However, tylenol (acetaminophen) is ok, and my ob-gyn colleagues seem to be all right with vicodin. Many migraine meds are too dangerous to the fetus to risk, so my advice is to discuss fully with you obstetrician. A neurologist may also help.

In brief: Caution

If you may be pregnant, it is best to avoid all medications if possible, but particularly triptans (imitrex), opioids (vicodin), or benzodiazepines (xanax).
Please consult with your gynecologist before taking any medication if you may be pregnant.
