Sumatriptan 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, Sumatriptan can effectively stop a migraine from developing and thus prevent and disruption to the patients life beyond that point.


Usually a single dose will stop a migraine from developing further. 

 

It’s best to take Sumatriptan as soon as you feel a migraine coming on, although - you can take it at any time during an attack.

Don’t use Sumatriptan 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 Sumatriptan tablet, swallowed whole with water at the onset of migraine. 

If your symptoms start to come back

You can take a second Sumatriptan 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 Sumatriptan 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 Sumatriptan 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.

Common side effects (affect up to 1 in 10 people)

  • Heaviness, pressure, tightness or pain in the chest, throat or other parts of the body,
  • or feelings of unusual sensations, including numbness, tingling and warmth or cold.

  • If these effects continue or become severe (especially the chest pain): Get medical help urgently. In a very small number of people these symptoms can be caused by a heart attack. 

Other common side effects include:

  • Feeling sick (nausea) or being sick (vomiting), although this may be due to the migraine itself.
