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 Rizatriptan 25mg, 50mg, or 100mg if you suffer from migraine.
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.
The active ingredient in Sumatriptan is sumatriptan at a concentration of 25mg, 50mg, or 100mg.
Sumatriptan also contains the following inactive ingredients: lactose, microcrystalline cellulose, croscarmellose sodium, acesulfame potassium, magnesium stearate and colloidal silicon anhydrous.
For optimal effect, take Sumatriptan at the first sign of migraine, although you may also take it at any time during the headache. Do not take Sumatriptan to prevent a migraine attack, but only use when the headache has developed.
The dosage for this drug will vary from patient to patient. Therefore, always take it exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Take your tablet orally (by mouth) with some water. Do not chew, break, or crush the tablet.
If your migraine headache comes back, you may take a further dose, provided it is at least 2 hours after the first dose. The maximum recommended dose within a period of 24h is 30mg. Do not exceed this.
