I did take a medicine close to imitrex that also had sumatriptan and ended up not being able to breastfeed as much because my doctor said I had to wait 24 hrs till I could breastfeed after taking the meds. I had to pump for those 24 hrs and throw it out, which sucked. I would just say to pump as much as possible and after taking the medicine you can use the milk that you already pumped. I ended up not being able to breast feed as long as I would have liked because of the migraine medicine and pumping wasn't always successful for me. If you doctor isn't worried about the imitrex then maybe your okay, but I would double check on that
