Imigran tablets are used to treat migraine headaches. They contain the active ingredient Sumatriptan which belongs to a group of medicines known as selective serotonin 5-HT1B/1D agonists or ""triptans""
Triptans are very effective in stopping a migraine from reaching its full intensity.
When used at the onset of a migraine, Imigran can effectively stop a migraine from developing and thus prevent any disruption to the patients life beyond that point.
Usually a single dose will stop a migraine from developing further.
It’s best to take Imigran as soon as you feel a migraine coming on, although - you can take it at any time during an attack.
Don’t use Imigran to try to prevent an attack - only use it after your migraine symptoms start.
The usual dose for adults aged 18 to 65 is one Imigran tablet, swallowed whole with water.
If your symptoms start to come back
You can take a second Imigran tablet if at least 2 hours have passed since the first tablet. Don’t take more than 300 mg in total in 24 hours.
If Imigran doesn’t give you any relief: Ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice.
Don’t take more than six 50 mg tablets or three 100 mg tablets (that’s 300 mg in total) in 24 hours. Taking too much Imigran could make you ill.
If you have taken more than 300 mg in 24 hours: Contact your doctor for advice. If you have any further questions about the use of this medicine, ask your doctor or pharmacist.
Like all medicines, this medicine can cause side effects, but not everybody gets them. Some symptoms may be caused by the migraine itself.
