What is imigran nasal spray?Imigran nasal spray is used to treat the symptoms of a migraine. It works by reducing the dilation of blood vessels in the brain to relieve the associated symptoms, such as headache, nausea and visual disturbances. Imigran nasal spray should only be used to treat a migraine, not to prevent an attack. Each nasal spray contains a single dose so it is important to understand how to correctly use this medication before it is needed.
How quickly will Imigran nasal spray relieve migraine symptoms?It is recommended to use Imigran nasal spray as soon as symptoms of a migraine begin to occur. Treatment usually begins to work within 30 minutes.
Why use a nasal spray?Imigran nasal spray is an effective alternative for people who are unable to swallow tablets or prefer not to.
Can I use another spray of Imigran if the first is not effective?If there is no effect on the symptoms after using one 20mg spray (or two 10mg sprays), do not use another spray to treat the same migraine attack. You should contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice.
Imigran contains the active ingredient sumatriptan which treats migraines by reducing the widening of blood vessels in the brain.
The usual recommended dose of Imigran nasal spray for adults over 18 is one 20mg spray into one nostril as soon as symptoms begin. One 10mg may be enough to relieve migraine symptoms. Two 10mg sprays should not be exceeded in 24 hours.
