Migraine is a chronic condition. Sumatriptan does not cure it but offers relief against its painful symptoms. Migraines occur when blood vessels in the brain widen. Sumatriptan works by contracting the brain blood vessels so that blood can flow normally, offering relaxation that stops migraines. The drug stimulates serotonin receptors in the brain, which cause the muscles surrounding the blood vessels in the brain to contract. Sumatriptan also works by stabilizing the chemical changes that cause a migraine attack. The remedy relieves the sickness within 30 minutes.
Sumatriptan is safe for use as a migraine treatment. It may be inappropriate for you if:
Sumatriptan tablets should be swallowed whole and taken as soon as possible after the onset of a migraine. Sumatriptan 50mg & 100mg tablets can be taken with painkillers. Sumatriptan should not be taken with other 'triptans' or with medication containing ergotamine.
Each Sumatriptan tablet contains sumatriptan succinate as the active ingredient. Each tablet also contains Lactose monohydrate, hypromellose, microcrystalline cellulose, croscarmellose sodium, magnesium stearate, hypromellose, titanium dioxide (E171), triacetin, red iron oxide (E172).
