What Is Imitrex (Sumatriptan)?

Imitrex, generic name sumatriptan succinate is used to treat migraines. It relieves headaches, pain and other migraine symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, light and sound sensitivity. This medication is a selective serotonin receptor agonist used in oral, intranasal or injectable dosage methods to help ease migraines and stop headaches.

Imitrex prescription FAQs

  • How does Imitrex work?

    Imitrex belongs to a class of medications called triptans which affect the body's serotonin causing narrowing of blood vessels in the brain. This product will likely also relieve the patient’s pain by affecting specific nerves in the brain. Sumatriptan does not help to prevent future migraines or lessen how frequently a patient might get a migraine.

  • What Is The Recommended Imitrex Dosage and Treatment?

    Imitrex should be taken orally with or without food, as directed by your physician, at the first signs of a migraine.

    Your dosage will be based on your medical condition as well as your response to the treatment. If signs of improvement do not begin to show, do not take more doses of this medication before contacting your physician.

    If your headache returns, or symptoms only slightly improve, it is alright to take a second dose two hours after you have taken the first. Do not take more than 200 milligrams in a 24 hour period.

    Imitrex is also used as a backup for an injection of sumatriptan. If your pain only partially subsides or returns, you can take an additional dose of Imitrex by mouth two hours after your injection. Only take up to a maximum of 100 milligrams within a 24 hour period.

    Consult with your doctor about the correct dosage and dosing schedule before beginning treatment.

    If you are using drugs for migraine attacks on 10 or more days each month, the drugs may actually make your headaches worse (medication overuse headache). Do not use medications more often or for longer than directed. Tell your doctor if you need to use this medication more often, if the medication is not working as well, or if your headaches get worse.
