Migraine Pain Relief: Finding a Solution that Works for You

Migraines can be debilitating and extremely painful. The intense pain is often accompanied by other symptoms, such as nausea, dizziness, and vomiting. Migraines are often so excruciating they can keep you away from your job, leading to lost wages and a backlog of work. Migraine suffers need to find a pain relief treatment that works for them that can help with the pain, interrupted schedule, and sickness. 

Unfortunately, there is no single migraine remedy that works the same for everyone. Many patients, though, have experienced help from the prescription drug Sumatriptan. 

What Causes Migraines?

Effectively treating migraines is difficult because the exact cause of migraines remains a mystery. A variety of triggers and different physiological processes could b at work when a migraine occurs.

At this stage of the research, medical professionals suspect migraines could be the result of increased brain activity that causes mixed signals, which can cause severe pain and other symptoms. 

What Makes Sumatriptan Unique?

While some common treatments work to restrict blood vessels in the brain, Sumatriptan actually changes the brain’s chemistry. Sumatriptan belongs to a class of medicine referred to as 5HT1-receptors, or selective serotonin receptor agonists, which are also often simply known as triptans. These drugs are defined by their ability to stimulate serotonin receptors in the brain.

Evidence shows that triggering the serotonin receptors in the brain can ease symptoms of migraines and provide relief for some patients. While Sumatriptan cannot prevent a migraine from occurring, it can be used after the onset of pain and other symptoms.

What is the Chemical Makeup of Sumatriptan?

Sumatriptan contains a combination of active and inactive ingredients. Succinate is the active ingredient that works to fight migraines. Inactive ingredients include:

  • Croscarmellose sodium
  • Dibasic calcium phosphate
  • Microcrystalline cellulose
  • Sodium bicarbonate
  • Acesulfame potassium
  • Magnesium stearate
  • Colloidal silicon anhydrous

These ingredients work together to provide a pill that is easy on the digestive system and quickly dissolves to provide fast pain relief. If you are allergic to any of these ingredients, avoid taking Sumatriptan and talk to your doctor about alternative treatments.

What is the Best Way to Store Sumatriptan?

Be sure to keep all medication safely out of the reach of children. Sumatriptan is best stored in a cool, dry place where it will not be exposed to direct light or heat. Dispose of any medications that have passed their expiration date.

Does Sumatriptan Have Other Uses?

Sumatriptan is also commonly prescribed to treat cluster headaches, which differ from migraines in that they are defined by severe pain that is isolated to one side of the head. If you experience frequent migraines, cluster headaches, or both, you may also want to talk to your doctor about preventive treatments

If you have been prescribed Sumatriptan, is here to help you get the treatment you need. Our safe and secure prescription service offers a new level of privacy and convenience for patients. All of our orders are fulfilled by a UK regulated pharmacy, so you can be confident about quality of the products you purchase.


How Long Before Sumatriptan Begins to Work?

If you are experiencing the early signs of a migraine or are in the middle of a full attack, you want immediate relief. Sumatriptan is relatively fast-acting. Many people experience significant pain relief in just one hour.

While results vary from patient to patient, up to 35 percent of users experienced significant relief within one hour, and about half of patients reported noticeable relief from symptoms within two hours of taking the medication. Finally, 28 percent to 33 percent of patients experience complete relief within two hours of ingesting Sumatriptan.

What Do I Need to Know about Dosages?

Sumatriptan is taken as needed, so there is no need to worry about missed doses. However, patients should avoid taking more than 200 mg in a 24-hour period. Common symptoms of an overdose include:

  • Shaking
  • Red skin
  • Breathing trouble
  • Weakness and convulsions

If you have taken too much Sumatriptan or are experiencing symptoms you suspect may indicate an overdose, immediately seek medical attention.

Which Dosage is Right for Me?

Finding the right dosage to effectively treat your symptoms may involve some trial an error. Typically, doctors will start patients on the lower dosage and monitor positive results and side effects. (Report any side effects via your chat portal.)

Some patients respond well to the lower dosage, while others may need to titrate their medication by taking a 100 mg tablet and deciding whether any possible side effects are worth the relief.

I Have Never Taken Sumatriptan Before

Those who are especially sensitive to medication, or who weigh 100 pounds or less, should be careful about taking larger or double doses. You can order both 50 mg and 100 mg doses through 

Do I Need to Take Sumatriptan with Food?

Sumatriptan can be taken with a glass of water as soon as migraine symptoms develop. If you experience nausea, you may want to eat only simple foods when on the medication, but you can take Sumatriptan on an empty stomach. If you do not experience relief within two hours, take another dose. Keep in mind that you should not exceed 200 mg in a 24-hour period.

What Side Effects Should I Be Aware Of?

Most patients who try Sumatriptan do not experience any adverse reactions. However, some common side effects include:

  • Chest pain or tightness
  • Dizziness
  • Vomiting
  • Drooling
  • Feeling hot or cold
  • Mild headache

If you experience these side effects, you should follow-up with your doctor. However, if you experience more severe and less common side effects — tingling sensations, convulsions, loss of coordination, and body pains — you may be having an allergic reaction and should immediately contact a medical professional.

Is Sumatriptan Safe During Pregnancy

While some preliminary studies have been done on the effects of Sumatriptan on animals, no exhaustive or conclusive tests have been conducted on humans. This means all information about the effects on pregnant women and fetuses has been collected through post-marketing surveys.

Ultimately, the data show no significant effects, although doctors will typically recommend that Sumatriptan only be taken during pregnancy when the benefits outweigh the risks. As with most prescription drugs and pregnant women, better to err on the side of caution.

Does Sumatriptan Interact with other Medications?

Be sure to tell our prescriber about any medications or supplements you are currently taking. In addition, report any instances of allergic reactions you have had in the past. This will help prevent any negative interactions and make sure you get the most out of your medication.

Is Sumatriptan Safe for Everyone?

In addition, if you have other medical conditions — such as heart problems, high blood pressure, kidney or liver disease or seizures — Sumatriptan may not be the right choice to treat your migraines. Take the time to inform our prescriber of any previous or existing medical conditions that may affect your treatment.
