Sumatriptan is a prescription medication that is used to treat migraines which are commonly described as a moderate to severe throbbing pain on one side of the head. As well as relieving headache pain, it has proven to be effective when tackling other symptoms of migraines which can include nausea, vomiting and sensitivity to sound and light. Some migraines also come with an aura which sufferers describe as a being bright lights, blind spots or zigzags in their vision.
Sumatriptan belongs to a class of drugs known as triptans, also known as 5-HT1 receptor agonists. The triptans bind to receptors and reduce the swelling of blood vessels in the brain which is thought to be the trigger for a migraine.
These tablets should be taken as soon as you begin to experience a migraine or any cluster headaches.
The tablets usually begin working in between 30 minutes to 60 minutes.
Sumatriptan has not been approved for child use. However in some cases it has been prescribed for children over the age of 6 to tackle migraines.
Sumatriptan Tablets are not suitable for use throughout pregnancy. Anyone who is breastfeeding or trying to get pregnant should avoid taking Sumatriptan Tablets.
Sumatriptan Tablets are not suitable for people who have any history of heart problems such as chest pain, stroke, coronary heart disease or have previously had a heart attack.
It is advised that you do not take Sumatriptan Tablets if you are a heavy smoker and if you are using nicotine replacement therapy.
Sumatriptan Tablets cause the blood vessels which cause migraines and headaches to narrow, increasing blood pressure. If you already have a high blood pressure you should avoid taking Sumatriptan Tablets.
If you struggle to swallow the tablets, you can separate them into halves by carefully cutting along the middle.
You should avoid taking Sumatriptan Tablets if you have seizures and fits, have circulation problems in your legs and have any heart or liver related problems.
Sumatriptan is not a pain killer, it should not be used to treat normal headaches.
Sumatriptan Tablets treat migraines and similar cluster headaches. They do not in any way prevent these conditions from occurring.
If you experience common side effects such as dizziness, you should avoid driving and using machinery until you feel better.
You should swallow your Sumatriptan Tablets with a glass of water. You should not try to crush or chew these tablets in any way.
You should avoid taking Sumatriptan Tablets if you have any history of allergic reactions to this drug.
You should not combine any other migraine treatment with Sumatriptan Tablets.
Effectively they both contain the same active ingredients, meaning they are medically the same. The main difference is price and branding. Imigran costs more as it is a branded version of Sumatriptan.
Sumatriptan can be purchased online once you have completed a short questionnaire. Your answers will be assessed by one of our doctors to ensure the medication is right for you. Once you have successfully completed the assessment form and received your prescription you can purchase repeat orders of your medication online too.
Sumatriptan can promptly relieve the pain associated with migraine attacks, as well as other symptoms. The medication is often prescribed when painkillers, such as paracetamol, have failed to work. Many people have found that their migraines go away completely after using this medication, or else the pain is significantly reduced enough so that they are able to return to normal everyday activities.
The treatment is the generic version of Imigran and though medically equivalent to this branded drug, it is also more affordable due to being an unbranded version.
There have been extensive, clinical trials done on Sumatriptan which show that it is highly effective at providing rapid relief from migraine pain and its other symptoms such as nausea.
Results showed that relief from a severe attack was demonstrated within 30 minutes of taking a 100mg treatment both with and without an aura present.
Sumatriptan has been shown to be an effective and safe long-term option to treat acute migraines, though it is crucial you speak to a medical professional to get clarification that it is the appropriate treatment for your situation.
Sumatriptan comes in either a 50mg or 100mg tablet form which provides a dose of the active ingredient Sumatriptan.
The dose usually offered at first is the 50mg version but in some cases, a patient may require a 100mg dose.
To find out more about dosages, check the prescription label or the patient instructions that come with your medication. You can also speak to your GP or one of our healthcare specialists here at Click Pharmacy for more information.
You should not take the medication before you notice the signs of an attack. Instead, as soon as you start to experience the symptoms of a migraine, swallow one tablet with a glass of water. It can be taken with food or without it and it should be swallowed whole. It can also safely and effectively be taken after an attack has started.
It is not clear why people develop migraines, though it is believed that they are triggered by the swelling of blood vessels around the brain. During an attack, certain chemicals in the brain are released resulting in an increase in brain activity, the result of which can be the disruptive symptoms aside from the pain, such as visual disturbances and sickness.
Though the treatment is not designed to prevent future migraines and is only beneficial during the course of an attack, Sumatriptan works by countering the effects of these enlarged blood vessels and chemical releases and reduces pain and other symptoms.
Like any medication, there are some temporary side effects associated with Sumatriptan. The most common include dizziness, drowsiness, hot flushes, nausea, muscle pain and stiffness, and weakness. If these side effects do not subside, seek medical attention immediately. The medication can also cause some more serious side effects, although they are very rare and only occur in a small number of cases.
For further details, read the patient information leaflet that comes with your prescription. You can also contact our healthcare experts for advice.
There have been a larger number of studies done on the use of Sumatriptan in pregnant and breastfeeding women than other similar drugs and as such, it has the largest amount of data available on its safety. With that in mind, studies have shown that Sumatriptan is suggested to be safe in pregnant women and also safe whilst breastfeeding as only very minimal amounts (below 10% of the mother's dosage) is secreted into the milk.
In any case, speak with your GP or doctor at Click Pharmacy before taking Sumatriptan whilst pregnant or breastfeeding and for ease you can arrange a free, online appointment with a Click Pharmacy health specialist.
It is recommended that you discuss any other medications you are taking, including herbal supplements, non-prescription drugs and vitamins, with your GP before getting a prescription for Sumatriptan.
Specific medications to mention include:
If you find that you suffer from one of the potential side effects such as dizziness, drowsiness or sickness then it is important not to drive or operate machinery during this time and wait for the sensations to pass.
Common side effects include tiredness, dizziness, drowsiness and feeling tired.
If you experience a severe allergic reaction to this drug, such as a rash, swelling, itching and difficulty breathing, seek medical assistance immediately.
Avoid taking any more Sumatriptan if you experience unexpected feelings of warmth or coldness, heaviness in the face or chest and tightness in legs and arms.
An overdose of Sumatriptan Tablets can result in loss of bladder and bowel control, a slower heart rate, feeling faint and sickness.
