Sumatriptan is a medication to treat migraines and cluster headaches. You take sumatriptan once a migraine or collection headache has begun. If painkillers or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs have not worked, it is not a medicine however you can use this medicine. The nasal spray and injection are used to deal with migraine headaches and collection headaches. You can also get packs containing 2 50mg tablets from a pharmacy over the counter, but only if you have formerly been diagnosed with migraines. Take sumatriptan as soon as a migraine headache or cluster headache begins. When taking sumatriptan, do not take migraine medicines such as ergotamine or other triptans. Sumatriptan is additionally understood by the brand Imigran, Migraitan and Boots Migraine Relief 50mg Tablets. Most adults with migraine headaches can have sumatriptan tablets or injections. Sumatriptan is not appropriate for some people.
