Sumatriptan


A fast-acting generic medication, equivalent to Imigran, which can help to relieve a migraine headache about 30 minutes after you take it.

 

What is Sumatriptan?

Sumatriptan is used to treat migraine. The tablets contain an active ingredient called Sumatriptan Succinate, which belongs to a group of medicines called triptans (5-HT, receptor agonists). Migraines, usually identified by a throbbing at the front or on the side of the head, can affect a large number of people on a daily basis, and the root cause can often be difficult to interpret. Imigran can also provide a fast-acting relief to the symptoms of more severe migraines, which can include nausea, sensitivity to light and sound and stiffness in the neck and shoulder area.

What is a migraine?

A migraine will usually start as a headache with throbbing at the front or on the side of the head. As the migraine develops, the location of the pain may change and become more intense. Depending on the severity, the symptoms may include; nausea and vomiting, sensitive to light, visual problems, sensitive to smells, reduced concentration levels, sweating, abdominal pain, feeling generally unwell and occasionally leading to diarrhoea. The symptoms associated with a migraine can vary between individuals and in severe cases can last a couple of days.

How the medication works

Migraine symptoms may be triggered by a temporary swelling of blood vessels in the head due to a temporary chemical imbalance in the body. Sumatriptan counters this chemical imbalance by stimulating receptors in the brain that result in a reduction in the swelling of the blood vessels, thereby relieving the intense pain felt during a migraine.

How to use it

Please consult the enclosed patient information leaflet before using Sumatriptan

The following dosage guide should be followed:

  • Adult (Over 18 Years of age)
  • 50mg at onset of symptoms as soon as possible. Some patients may require 100mg
  • If after taking the first dose your symptoms are reduced, but later return, a second dose of 50mg may only be taken at least 2 hours following the first dose.
  • If the first tablet has no effect, do not take another dose for the same migraine. For further advice contact your GP or the Patient Support Team on 0208 123 0703 or at help@expresspharmacy.co.uk

Maximum daily dosage for Sumatriptan is 300 milligrams

  • 50mg – 6x50mg tablets a day
  • 100mg – 3x100mg tablets a day

Side Effects

The most common side effects associated with the usage of Sumatriptan include; fatigue, dizziness, flushing, sensations of heaviness and short term increases in blood pressure (transient).

Further information on the side effects of Sumatriptan can be found in the patient information leaflet.

24-Aug-2017 Have suffered for years with migraine, these do what they say on the box worked within 30 minutes
19-Aug-2017 As a migraine sufferer I dread the onset of the intense pain that develops. 1 hour after taking these I am free from it. As a life long sufferer I can't believe how good these are and wish I had discovered them much sooner.
19-Aug-2017 They work well for me in getting rid of migraine pain quickly. They are a life saver! I only need 50mg so cut them in half.

07-Sep-2017 I have had this medication prescribed by my own doctor but as a busy full time worker it's difficult to get in to see my doctor to be able to order this online is perfect for me.
17-Jul-2017 they actually work. .........
16-Jul-2017 Excellent product, gets rid of migraine fast. I ordered the 100gm Sumatriptan as the 50gm was out of stock. It's no trouble just to cut each tablet in half.
05-Jun-2017 Having tried various pills from the doctor which never worked more than a few times, sumatriptan now seems to work every time. Can't live without it for my migraines. I find it takes 1/2 to 3/4 of an hour to work for me.
