Imitrex Information:

Imitrex (Generic name: Sumatriptan Succinate) is an approved medication to treat migraine attacks, with or without aura (warning signs that occur prior to the onset of a migraine). Sumatriptan Succinate is a 5-hydroxytryptamine agonist (triptan). It works by narrowing the blood vessels in the brain, which helps to relieve migraine symptoms including headache pain, nausea, sensitivity to light and sound. Sumatriptan should be used only to treat an acute, classic migraine attack or a cluster headache. Imitrex is NOT recommended for other types of headache or for headache prevention. Take Imitrex exactly as it was prescribed for you.

Imitrex Side Effects:

The most common Imitrex side effects are burning, pain, change in taste sensation, dizziness, drowsiness, flushing, light-headedness, muscle aches, nausea or vomiting. If you are experiencing any severe side effects such as seizures, irregular breathing, heart attack, loss of vision, abdominal pain, rectal bleeding, stoke symptoms and serious allergic reaction (e.g., rash, hives, difficult breathing, swelling of the lips, throat or tongue), please inform your doctor immediately.
