What is Imigran Nasal Spray and what does it do?

Imigran Nasal Spray is a medicine used for the acute treatment of migraine attacks. It may be prescribed if you have previously been diagnosed with migraine.

This treatment is provided in the form of a nasal spray. It is to be used as soon as possible after the onset of symptoms. Imigran Nasal Spray contains 10mg of active ingredient (sumatriptan) per dose.

When is Imigran Nasal Spray prescribed?

Imigran Nasal Spray may be prescribed if you have previously been diagnosed with migraine. Imigran Nasal Spray should ideally be used as soon as the first signs of a migraine attack appear.

  • If you have had a stroke
  • If you have high blood pressure or a liver disease.
  • If you take any other migraine medicines.

Imigran tablets or nasal spray - what’s the difference?

The main difference is the way how the treatment is taken. The tablets are swallowed whole with a glass of water, while the nasal spray is administered in one nostril. Imigran Nasal Spray may provide a slightly more rapid relief compared to the tablets.

You should follow the doctor’s instructions on how to take this medicine. The doses outlined below is for your reference only. The treatment is administered into one nostril to relieve symptoms after the onset of a migraine attack.

Does Imigran Nasal Spray cause any side effects?

Yes, Imigran Nasal Spray may cause side effects. However, not everyone will experience them. It is important that you read the patient information leaflet before you take Imigran to familiarise yourself with any potential side effects and allergic reactions.
