Imitrex Tablet

Imitrex (sumatriptan) is a headache medicine that narrows blood vessels around the brain. Sumatriptan also reduces substances in the body that can trigger headache pain, nausea, sensitivity to light and sound, and other migraine symptoms.

Imitrex is used to treat migraine headaches and cluster headaches in adults. Imitrex will only treat a headache that has already begun. It will not prevent headaches or reduce the number of attacks.

Imitrex should not be used to treat a common tension head ache or a headache that causes loss of movement on one side of your body. Use this medicine only if your condition has been confirmed by a doctor as migraine headaches.
