About Sumatriptan tablets

Sumatriptan is a prescription medication that is used to treat migraine symptoms. It eases migraines, nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to sound and light. It's a triptan medication with sumatriptan succinate as the active ingredient.

It works by blocking the release of chemicals called serotonin and other substances in your brain that cause pain, nausea, dizziness, and sensitivity to light and sound.

Sumatriptan is used when regular pain relievers don't work for migraines.
