Details

What is Sumatriptan and what does it do?

Sumatriptan tablets are used to treat and relieve migraine attacks. Sumatriptan contains the active ingredient with the same name and is a so called generic version of the branded alternative Imigran.

Sumatriptan relieves migraine by constricting dilated blood vessels in the brain. It belongs to a group of medicines known as serotonin receptor agonists.

When is Sumatriptan prescribed?

Sumatriptan is indicated for the treatment of diagnosed migraine. It is important that you have been diagnosed with migraine before taking this medicine, so that the cause of your headache has been established.

Sumatriptan tablets are taken to relieve migraine once an attacked is starting to develop, or to relieve an ongoing migraine attack. Sumatriptan should not be used to try to prevent a future attack.

Is Sumatriptan suitable for my condition?

Sumatriptan may be suitable if a doctor has previously diagnosed you with migraine. Please note, all prescription requests are subject to the doctor’s approval. Sumatriptan should not be used if any of the below applies to you:

  • If you are allergic or sensitive to sumatriptan or any of the other ingredients listed in the patient information leaflet.
  • If you have a heart problem, chest pain (angina) or have previously had a heart attack.
  • If you have had a stroke or mini-stroke.
  • If you have blood circulation problems in your legs.
  • If you have high blood pressure.
  • If you have a severely reduced liver function.
  • If you use any other medication to treat migraine or for the treatment of depression.

What is the recommended dosage of Sumatriptan?

You should follow the doctor’s instructions on how to take this medicine. The doses outlined below is for your reference only. Swallow the tablet whole with water, do not chew or crush.

Never exceed 300mg in any 24 hour period.

Sumatriptan doses for adults

The recommended dose is 50mg taken when your migraine symptoms start to develop.

Note, Sumatriptan tablets should not be taken to try to prevent an attack. Only take Sumatriptan when an attack is starting to develop.

Does Sumatriptan cause any side effects?

Yes, Sumatriptan may cause side effects, just like all medicines. However, not everyone will experience them. Always read the patient information leaflet before use to learn more about possible side effects and allergic reactions.

Common side effects associated with taking Sumatriptan include, but are not limited to:

  • Drowsiness and dizziness.
  • Difficulty breathing.
  • Muscle pain.
  • Feeling weakness and/or feeling tired.
  • Feeling sick or being sick.
  • Pain, pressure, tightness or heaviness in any part of the body, such as chest and throat.

Can I reduce the risk of getting side effects?

Yes, you can reduce the risk of side effects related to drug interactions by letting our doctor know about any medicines you may take and any medical conditions you may have. You can do this by adding your information to the online medical questionnaire.

How do I buy Sumatriptan online?

To legally and safely buy Sumatriptan tablets online you need a prescription from a GMC (General Medical Council) registered doctor. Our web based doctor service allows you to request a private prescription through an online medical questionnaire. Once you have chosen your medicine and submitted the questionnaire, it will be assessed by one of our doctors.

If deemed suitable, the doctor will accept your request and a private prescription will be issued. Your medicine will then be dispensed by our UK pharmacy and sent by tracked delivery to your chosen address. Your medicine is usually dispatched within 24 hours after ordering.
