Sumatriptan tablets are a generic, low-cost version of the branded medicine Imigran used to treat migraines. Migraines cause excruciating headaches, dizziness and nausea, as well as light and sound sensitivity. The pain is usually localised, severe, and debilitating. Sumatriptan falls under Triptans (aka 5-HR1 agonists). The drug is often prescribed to help deal with the changes in the brain brought on by migraines. Doctors prescribe Triptans to offer relief for headaches where ordinary painkillers have not been efficient.

Description

Migraine is a chronic condition. Sumatriptan does not cure it but offers relief against its painful symptoms. Migraines occur when blood vessels in the brain widen. Sumatriptan works by contracting the brain blood vessels so that blood can flow normally, offering relaxation that stops migraines. The drug stimulates serotonin receptors in the brain, which cause the muscles surrounding the blood vessels in the brain to contract. Sumatriptan also works by stabilizing the chemical changes that cause a migraine attack. The remedy relieves the sickness within 30 minutes.
