Sumatriptan

Drug Info for sumatriptan

Sumatriptan nasal products are used to treat the symptoms of migraine headaches (severe, throbbing headaches that sometimes are accompanied by nausea and sensitivity to sound and light). Sumatriptan is in a class of medications called selective serotonin receptor agonists. It works by narrowing blood vessels around the brain, stopping pain signals from being sent to the brain, and blocking the release of natural substances that cause pain, nausea, and other symptoms of migraine. Sumatriptan does not prevent migraine attacks or reduce the number of headaches you have.

Sumatriptan is used to treat patients with migraines. It is also used to treat cluster headaches, cyclic vomiting syndrome, and other conditions as prescribed by your doctor. Sumatriptan dilates narrowed blood vessels of the brain to relieve pain. It is indicated for use by adults and is available as a powder.
