Sumatriptan (Generic Imitrex)

Sumatriptan is an acute prescription medication for migraine treatment that offers relief during migraine episodes. This medication is only intended for use by adults and should not be used to prevent cluster headaches. Sumatriptan targets the brain to relieve the pain caused by migraine headaches. With Sumatriptan, most users will find total relief from the pain caused by migraines while others claim that the pain becomes far less severe, allowing them to focus on their daily activities. This medication is usually prescribed for those whose migraines can’t be treated using acetaminophen, aspirin, or other pain relievers. Sumatriptan is available only with your doctor's prescription.
