Sumatriptan is a medication used to treat migraine symptoms. If used quickly, it can help alleviate the symptoms before they come on and many people find it much more effective than painkillers.
Sumatriptan is part of a group of drug called triptans which work to reverse the changes in the brain which induce migraines. It is thought to work by causing a narrowing of the blood vessels on the brain, which can swell during a migraine.
These are a second line treatment for migraines when traditional painkilling medicines are not effective.
Sumatriptan should be taken when you first feel the onset of a migraine. A second tablet may be taken 2-3 hours after your first dose if you have noticed an improvement in your symptoms.
You should not take more than 2 tablets in a 24 hour period.
Aside from using Sumatriptan tablets for migraine treatment, the mainstay of treatment is pain-killing medications such as Aspirin (Disprin), Paracetamol (Panadol) or Ibuprofen (Nurofen).
Triptans can also come in the form of nasal sprays.
