We report the case of a 53-year-old male patient with a medical history significant for paroxysmal atrial fibrillation, migraines with visual aura and non-obstructive coronary artery disease, who sustained a non-ST-elevation myocardial infarction a few hours after taking eletriptan as abortive therapy for migraine headaches. We believe this case implies a causal association between eletriptan and myocardial infarction, considering the timing of both drug intake and symptom onset. To the best of our knowledge this is the first reported myocardial infarction attributable to eletriptan overdose in a patient without obstructive coronary artery disease.
