Migraine Treatments

At Simple Online Pharmacy, you can order treatments for your Migraine online, via our online doctor. Migraines can be an extremely dibilitating condition, which causes severe throbbing headaches. In addition to the headache, some people can suffer from nausea and increased sensitivity to light or sound.

If you have been previously diagnosed with Migraines by your doctor, we can prescribe you migraine medication that helps prevent the onset of a migraine / lessen the symptoms. Sumatriptan can reverse the changes which occur in the brain when a migraine occurs, to help prevent its onset.

Once you have completed the online doctor consultation, our doctor will review your assessment and prescribe the selected medication if it is approproate. Our pharmacy will then dispense and deliver your prescription to your door.

Overview

Migraines are a common condition. In the UK migraines affect approximately 20% of women and just over 5% of men. Symptoms of migraine include severe headaches, with throbbing pains often at the front or side of the head. Nausea and sensitivity to light are also symptoms associated with migraine

Migraine relief medication are safe and effective and can help treat the causes as well as the symptoms of migraines.

Causes

The exact cause of migraines is still unclear. However it is thought they are the result of abnormal brain activity which temporarily affects nerve signals, chemicals and blood vessels in the brain.

What causes this change in brain activity is also unclear, but genetic factors are thought to make you more likely to experience migraines as a result of a specific trigger.

Migraine triggers

Many possible migraine triggers have been suggested, including

  • hormonal
  • emotional

Treatments

Treatment of Migraine

Despite being poorly understood, several migraine treatments have been developed which help with Migraines.
 
The main categories of treatments are
  • Pain Killers - like paracetamol and ibuprofen to ease the headache
  • Triptans - cause the blood vessels around the brain to contract (narrow). As a widening of blood is thought to be part of the migraine process, this counters this effect.
  • Anti Sickness Medicines

You can purchase Sumatriptan from our UK online doctor after completing an online assessment.
