Imitrex Summary

Sumatriptan available under the trademark name Imitrex is a medication used for the treatment of migraine and cluster headaches. It comes from a type of drugs known as triptans. Triptans are not similar to pain relievers, rather they act by reversing the modifications in the brain which can cause migraines. Imitrex (Sumatriptan) and medications of its class can be taken by those who have < 10 migraines during a month and whose discomfort is not sufficiently eliminated by simple analgesics such as paracetamol, ibuprofen and aspirin. It is not impacted by food, so you may take it irrespective of your last meal. You need to take Sumatriptan with some liquid. You can take the Sumatriptan at any point during the migraine but for the very best outcomes, take a Imitrex (Sumatriptan) tablet as quickly as you feel a migraine attackis going to start. Nevertheless, you need to not take a tablet to prevent an attack. The advised dosage for grownups is fifty milligram swallowed entire with water. Don't take more than 300milligram total in 24 Hr. Typical adverse effects, impacting less than 1 in 10 people, can consist of nausea, vomiting, exhaustion or drowsiness, or dizziness.
