What is Sumatriptan?
Sumatriptan is a drug used to treat the symptoms of migraine headaches, and belongs to a class of drugs called triptans. Usually, migraines involve severe, throbbing headaches, which are sometimes accompanied by sensitivity to light and/or sound, neck stiffness, and nausea (feeling sick). Doctors at Medzino can issue a prescription for Sumatriptan 25mg, 50mg, or 100mg if you suffer from migraine.
How does Sumatriptan work?
Sumatriptan works by narrowing the blood vessels in our head (constriction), which are believed to cause headache whenever they temporarily widen (dilatation). In other words, constriction helps to stop pain signals to be sent to the brain, hereby blocking the release of substances that cause pain, nausea, and other symptoms.
