Buy Sumatriptan UK | What is Sumatriptan?

Buy Sumatriptan UK - a prescription medication that is used to treat migraines. As well as relieving headache pain, it can prove to be effective in tackling other symptoms of migraines, such as nausea and sensitivity to sound and light. Sumatriptan belongs to a class of drugs known as triptans. These medicines work by reducing the swelling of blood vessels in the head that is thought to trigger migraines.

How does Sumatriptan Work?

Migraines are believed to be triggered by the swelling of blood vessels around the brain. Sumatriptan works by countering the effects of these enlarged blood vessels to reduce pain and other symptoms. However, bear in mind that the treatment does not work to prevent future migraines. It is only beneficial during the course of an attack. 

How should I take Sumatriptan?

The recommended dose for adults is 50mg at the beginning of a migraine attack. If this is ineffective then a patient can take up to 100mg. The tablets can be taken with our without food and should be taken whole, with a full glass of water. Sumatriptan should be taken as soon as migraine symptoms are experienced. The earlier it is taken during an attack, the more effective it’s action is. If the headache returns or the first dose was not effective enough to stop the headache, another tablet can be taken at least 2 hours after the first. If Sumatriptan still doesn’t reverse the pain then it is not recommended that you take another tablet for the same attack. Other treatment options (such as painkillers) should be sought to help deal with the symptoms.

How long does Sumatriptan take to work?

Relief usually takes 45 minutes to achieve with Sumatriptan. Each tablet lasts up to 2 hours however as triptans work by reversing the cause of migraine, they rarely require a second dose.
