Buy Sumatriptan Tablets Online in the UK
Sumatriptan, a member of the class of medications known as triptans, is found in a single dose in each Sumatriptan Film-Coated Tablet (also known as 5-HT1 receptor agonists).
This medication is used to treat acute migraine headaches in adults and works best being taken at the onset of a migraine.
The temporary enlargement of blood vessels in the head may contribute to migraine symptoms. It is thought that sumatriptan lessens the growth of these blood vessels. As a result, the headache is reduced, and other migraine symptoms like feeling or being sick (nausea or vomiting) and sensitivity to light and sound are also lessened.
Containing the same active ingredient, Sumatriptan is the cheaper option than the available branded product Imigran.
The manufacturer of the product supplied may vary. Please read the patient information leaflet that is provided with the product.
It's recommended that you take Sumatriptan as soon as you start to feel a migraine coming on, however, you can take it whenever necessary while having an attack.
Do not try to prevent an attack by taking Sumatriptan; only take it once your migraine symptoms appear.
