Migraine headaches proved very difficult to treat. Many people have experimented with different pain medication but they could hardly find one that works to provide relief to migraine headaches. Sumatriptan is one of the few migraine medications that actually work.


Sumatriptan is a prescription medication used for the treatment of migraine headaches. It is marketed under the Imitrex brand. It is the generic version of the drug that costs less than the branded one but may not be available in different dose as the brand-name drug.

It is also available in nasal spray form, as a transdermal skin patch, a nasal powder, or as an injectable solution. It may be used as part of a combination therapy for the management of migraine headaches, which means that it may be taken with other medications.

What is Sumatriptan?

Sumatriptan is a member of the class of drugs called serotonin-1 receptor agonists that works by constricting blood vessels in the brain to relieve swelling. This type of drugs reduces the substances in the body that triggers of headache pain, sensitivity to noise and light, and nausea and vomiting that are normally associated with migraine headaches. It is very helpful in the treatment of moderate to severe headaches.

It works effectively in the relief of migraine symptoms. The medication works best when taken as soon as a migraine headache starts. When taken after the headache pain had started, it will still work but may take a while before the effects are felt.

Sumatriptan is not to be used for the treatment of the ordinary tension headache, any headache that is different from the usual migraine headaches, or a headache that results in one side of the body losing movement. This medication is to be used only after a doctor has confirmed that your condition is a migraine headache.

How do I take Sumatriptan?

Take Sumatriptan exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Do not take it in larger or smaller dose than what is recommended by your doctor. Read carefully and follow the directions on the prescription label. Do not overuse it because doing so will make your headache worse.

Sumatriptan is to be taken as soon as you notice the beginning of the headache symptoms, or immediately after a migraine attack has begun.

Your doctor could take precautions by giving you the first dose of Sumatriptan in the hospital or clinic setting in order to observe if you will have serious side effects.

At the first sign of a migraine headache, take one tablet while with one full glass of water. Do not split the tablet.

If a migraine headache will not fully go away, or if it will go away and comes back, you may take a second tablet after two hours. Do not take more than 200 mg of Sumatriptan tablets in 24 hours.

See your doctor if you experience more than four headaches in a one-month period.
