Overview

What is Imigran?

Imigran is a fast and effective branded medication for migraine relief. Imigran is the branded version of the generic drug Sumatriptan and can alleviate migraine symptoms, but it cannot prevent migraines.

When all regular pain killers fail to relieve a migraine, Imigran is an effective treatment that constricts the blood vessels in the brain and alleviates pain since the widening of blood vessels are thought to be the cause of migraines.

Imigran is available in 50mg and 100mg tablets.

What is a Migraine?

A headache that is moderate to severe and is felt on one side of the head is considered to be a migraine. Occurring in one in 5 women and one in 15 men, most will experience migraine symptoms like nausea, vomiting and increased sensitivity to light or sound.

There are three different types of migraines:

  • Migraines with aura: specific symptoms act as warning signs before the migraine begins.
  • Migraines without aura: the migraine begins suddenly and without warning signs. This is the most common type of migraine.
  • Migraines with aura but without headache: specific symptoms are experienced but no headache develops.

Directions

Directions for use

A special way for Imigran drug intake should be followed to achieve the most effective results of migraine relief and to avoid and decrease the risk of the side effects. The full instructions are available in the patient information leaflet which you need to follow.

You should take one tablet per migraine attack, it is more effective when you take the dose at the beginning of migraine symptoms, and also, you can take the dose at any point throughout the attack.

  • Use the drug as directed.
  • Most patients use Imigran 50mg tablets, one tablet at the beginning of the migraine attack.
  • One pill per attack
  • You can take another dose 2 hours after the attack, only if the symptoms happen again.
  • Patients may need 100 mg Imigran tablets if 50mg tablets fail to relieve the migraine symptoms.
  • Don’t exceed 300mg of Imigran intake within 24 hours. 
  • Store the drug in a safe place, below 30°C.

The patient information leaflet contains the comprehensive guidelines and instructions which you need to read.

FAQ

  • How to take Sumatriptan?

    Sumatriptan is taken by mouth. Only one tablet is taken at the first sign of migraine. If no improvement after 2 hours from taking the first tablet, then may take a second one.

  • How long does it take for Sumatriptan pill to kick in?

    Sumatriptan is a quick-acting anti-migraine medication. It acts rapidly within just 30 minutes after oral administration.

  • Can migraine be cured permanently?

    Since migraine has no definitive cause, there is no 'cure' for migraine. However, migraine can be 'treated' and managed using safe and effective medications available, that work to decrease its frequency and pain intensity.

  • Can Sumatriptan prevent migraine?

    Sumatriptan is a 'pain killer' that is used exclusively for treating the pain of migraine. Therefore, if you are not experience migraine pain or symptoms of migraine aura, then there is no point of taking Sumatriptan pills. No matter how many pills you take, it will not prevent the next migraine.

  • What is cluster headache? Can Sumatriptan treat cluster headache?

    Cluster headaches are attacks of severe agonizing pain starting on one side of the head around the eye and frontal region, and spreading gradually to the same side of the head and neck.

    Cluster headaches are usually associated with conjunctival redness, excessive tears, and nasal discharge.

    Unlike migraine, cluster headache attacks are brief (minutes to hours) and affect middle-aged males mainly (90%).

    The attacks occur in regular 'clusters', i.e. every 24 hours for a few weeks or months. Each cluster is followed by 6-12 months, during which the patient is completely free of symptoms.

    Sumatriptan is among the most effective ways to treat cluster headaches.

  • What can you do to prevent attacks?

    Naturopathic approaches like acupuncture, massage, relaxation, and physiotherapy can decrease the frequency of migraine attacks.

    Simple lifestyle modifications can improve your migraine, and decrease its frequency. These modifications include getting enough sleep, avoiding physical and mental stress, adjusting home illumination so it doesn’t trigger your migraine, avoiding noise, practicing meditation or yoga, and taking notes about your headache that helps you know more about what are the triggers for your migraine.

  • What are other drugs available for treating migraine?

    Drugs like Propranonol and Pizotifin are used between the attacks to prevent new migraine attacks.

    These drugs are used only if the attacks occur two or more times per month, or if the migraine is complicated by some serious neurological signs.

Causes

Causes and Risk factors for Migraine

There are no definitive causes of migraine. Migraine is attributed to the presence of multiple causes and triggers (genetics, environmental, psychological, dietary), rather than a single factor.


Genetics

Studies of migraine incidence show that if one of two twins suffers from migraine, the other has a risk ranging from 30% to 50% for developing a migraine. This suggests that genetic factors play a role in the initiation or worsening of the disease, as twins have the same exact genes. In the same way, if you have a family history for migraine, then you are at increased risk.

Psychological triggers

Attacks of a sharp headache for people with migraine may increase significantly if the patient is subjected to stress, hunger, or fatigue. However, this varies from one patient to another.

Dietary trigger for Migraine

The direct dietary trigger for your migraine can be difficult to identify. However, the common dietary triggers include caffeine, chocolate, aged cheese and meats, spicy foods, alcohol, MSG, citrus fruits, and foods/drinks containing aspartame.

How to diagnose Migraine?

Migraine is diagnosed mainly by history and symptoms, as migraine headache usually occurs with no clear underlying cause. Blood tests, CT, MRI, or lumbar puncture may be recommended by your doctor to detect any suspected abnormality that worsens the headache, like infection, tumours, or bleeding in the brain.
Your doctors look for the frequency of the attacks, whether they are preceded with aura or not, pain intensity, presence or absences of pulsating pain, nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to lights or sounds.
