What makes Sumatriptan different to an ordinary painkiller?Sumatriptan will only relieve pain resulting from migraine headaches. It is a type of triptan which works to reverse the changes in the blood vessels in the brain which cause a migraine in addition to alleviating the symptoms.
Can Sumatriptan be used to prevent migraines?No, Sumatriptan must not be used to prevent an attack and should only be used at the onset of migraine symptoms or during a migraine attack.
CautionsSumatriptan should not be used to prevent a migraine attack; it should only be taken at the onset of symptoms or during an attack. Consult a doctor before taking Sumatriptan if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Sumatriptan passes into breast milk and a child should not be fed with milk expressed within 12 hours of taking Sumatriptan. There have not been any studies carried out on the influence of Sumatriptan on the ability to drive or operate machinery, however drowsiness may occur and therefore patients are advised against driving or operating machinery while taking this medicine.
The active ingredient, sumatriptan, is a serotonin receptor agonist (5-HT) which mimics the action of serotonin to relieve pain by causing the blood vessels in the brain to narrow and return to their normal state. Sumatriptan also treats other symptoms associated with migraines such as nausea, vomiting and sensitivity to light and sound.
Take one Sumatriptan tablet at the onset of migraine symptoms or during an attack. Do not take a second dose for the same attack; only take Sumatriptan again if there is a subsequent attack after at least two hours.
Side effects of Sumatriptan can be intense but usually pass quickly. If they persist or become severe, seek medical help urgently.
The most common side effects of taking Sumatriptan include:
- Dizziness or drowsiness
- Feeling sick or vomiting
- Pressure or tightness in the chest, throat or other parts of the body
- Weakness and fatigue
