Next, you'll hear from the doctor

Once you’ve entered your symptoms, a doctor or nurse practitioner will review your case. If they’re able to help, your visit will start; if they can’t help, you’ll be notified before your consultation begins and you won’t be charged. You’re only charged if you speak with a Maple doctor.

Most often, you’ll speak to your doctor or nurse practitioner over text, though they may request audio or video chat if it’ll help with your diagnosis.

Get your medication

You'll get a prescription right on Maple, so you can send it to any pharmacy for pickup, or you can have it shipped with free delivery.

In some cases, a prescription won’t be recommended by the doctor. They will let you know if this is the case. Doctors may also not be able to prescribe some medications in certain provinces or regions.

Note: Maple is not a pharmaceutical manufacturer, nor are we an online pharmacy. This means you'll need to buy the medication from the pharmacy itself once you have your prescription.

Usually, Imitrex is used to treat acute migraine headaches after they’ve started.

Additionally, a sumatriptan prescription can be used to minimize or remove symptoms of migraine headaches such as:

  • Pain

  • Vomiting
  • Sensitivity to light

NOTE: Imitrex can’t be used as a preventative measure against migraine headaches or to treat cluster headaches.

If you’ve been given a sumatriptan prescription online, it’ll be as a tablet to be taken orally, or as a nasal spray or powder, to be inhaled through the nose.

Occasionally, sumatriptan can be given as an injection. However, this would be administered by a licensed healthcare professional at a registered healthcare facility. It wouldn’t be prescribed for home use in this form. These injections shouldn’t be given to anyone under the age of 18.
