Sumatriptan is the active ingredient in Imigran. It acts on the serotonin receptors found on blood vessels in the brain. This causes them to shrink. It also blocks the action of the trigeminal nerve to alleviate the headaches and other symptoms associated with migraines, like feeling sick or sensitive to sound or light.
Imigran begins working in about 30 minutes after you take the tablet.
Do not take another dose of the medication if the first dose does not relieve your migraine. It has been shown that taking another tablet is not effective. You should consult your doctor if you have a migraine.
If your migraines are not relieved by the first dose, but you feel the need to take the medication again, you may take the second dose as long as it is not taken within two hours.
Do not exceed the recommended dosage of Imigran. You should not take more than 2 doses of Imigran within 24 hours. Do not use the same medication to treat an attack.
If your migraine headaches persist, or if they are severe, consult your doctor.
Migraine should not be prevented by using Imigran. It is not recommended for this purpose.
Within 30 minutes of starting the medication, you may feel warmth, heaviness or pressure in some parts of your body. You should see your doctor immediately if the pain or heaviness persists for more than 2 hours or becomes severe. If your doctor tells you not to take more tables, do so immediately.
