Sumatriptan

Sumatriptan

Sumatriptan is intended for the treatment of migraine headaches. This drug is a selective serotonin receptor agonist by interfering with serotonin receptors. Available at doses from 25 mg to 100 mg, Sumatriptan has been used since 1992, when it was approved by the FDA for migraine headaches.
Synonyms: Imitrex

Sumatriptan was approved by the FDA for the treatment of acute migraine headaches in adult patients. Migraine headaches that Sumatriptan can be used to treat can be with or without aura. Being a selective serotonin receptor agonist, Sumatriptan stimulates serotonin receptors in the brain, narrowing the blood vessels in the brain and relieving the pain. At the same time, this drug also affects the way pain signals are passed between the brain and the nerve endings for better pain relief. You can buy Sumatriptan 50 mg or 100 mg online as tablets, but there is also intranasal solution and solution for injection available. When you buy Sumatriptan online, keep in mind that 200 mg is the maximum daily dose. You should not exceed that dose to avoid unpleasant symptoms. Taking more of this drug is not going to make your treatment more efficient. Another thing to consider before you decide to buy Sumatriptan at an online pharmacy is the fact of taking any other drugs likely to interact with it, especially isocarboxazid, citalopram, venlafaxine, duloxetine, sibutramine, procarbazine, paroxetine, fluoxetine, phenelzine or sertraline. To avoid interactions, talk to your doctor or pharmacist about the best way to combine both your treatments. Sumatriptan may not be used by pregnant or breastfeeding women until they have discussed all the risks and benefits of their treatment with a qualified professional. It's not known whether Sumatriptan will affect an unborn baby and how exactly. Nursing mothers should avoid Sumatriptan because it will be excreted into breast milk.

Side Effects

Sumatriptan may cause a few mild side effects of its own in the patient taking a certain dose. However, side effects are not very likely in most patients. You should still be aware of the possibility of such mild side effects occurring as weakness, dizziness, abdominal discomfort, flushing, tingling, nasal irritation and sweating. More serious side effects like seizures, coronary artery spasm and abnormal heart beats are extremely rare and have to be reported to your doctor.
