Note: You must complete a short online consultation so that our doctor can ensure that the treatment is suitable for you. The above pricing should only be used as a reference. The final decision to issue this treatment lies with the prescribing doctor.

What is Sumatriptan?

Sumatriptan is a medication taken to treat migraine. It reduces symptoms of migraine headaches, and can help reduce other migraine symptoms, such as nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to light and sound.

You can buy Sumatriptan online from euroClinix if you have been diagnosed with migraine by a medical professional.

How does Sumatriptan work?

The exact cause of migraine attacks is unknown, but it is thought they are caused by a temporary widening of blood vessels in the head.

Sumatriptan is a type of drug called a triptan, or serotonin agonist. It works on serotonin receptors, which causes your brain’s blood vessels to constrict.

This reversal of the widening of the blood vessels relieves the symptoms of a migraine attack.

How do I take Sumatriptan?

Take this medication exactly as your doctor has directed.

You should swallow one tablet with water as soon as you feel a migraine attack coming on. The usual dose is one 50mg tablet, but in some cases, your doctor may prescribe 100mg.

The medication should work within thirty minutes to an hour. If the first tablet has no effect, do not take another tablet for the same attack. If a migraine improves but then returns after at least two hours, you can take another dose.

Over-the-counter painkillers, such as ibuprofen, aspirin, and paracetamol, are safe to use alongside Sumatriptan unless your doctor has advised against this

You should not exceed a daily dose of 300mg in a day. If you take more than prescribed, please seek medical attention.

What are the possible side effects of Sumatriptan?

All medications affect people differently and can cause side effects.

Some of the most common side effects include:

  • dizziness
  • drowsiness
  • sensory disturbances
  • difficulty breathing
  • muscle pain
  • nausea or vomiting
  • a feeling of heaviness or pressure
  • fatigue
  • hot or cold sensations

You can read the prescription information leaflet for a complete list of side effects. If you experience anything particularly concerning, or if you notice that these continue for a long time, you should consult a medical professional for further advice.

What precautions should I take?

It is important that you are prescribed this medication from your doctor before ordering online so that they can assess your reaction to it and determine if it is right for you.

This treatment is available online from euroClinix if you are over the age of 18. It is not recommended for those over the age of 65.

You should not use Sumatriptan if you have:

  • had a heart attack or stroke
  • circulation problems in the legs
  • high blood pressure (uncontrolled)
  • reduced liver function
  • an allergy to any of the ingredients

You should always inform your doctor of any medication or supplement you are taking, even if it is not prescribed, as some medications may interfere with Sumatriptan, and vice versa.

This includes:

  • ergotamine
  • MAO inhibitors
  • SSRIs and SNRIs
  • St. John’s Wort
  • other migraine medication or medications containing triptan

Filling out your consultation accurately will help us ensure that this is the appropriate treatment for you.

If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you should ask your doctor before using Sumatriptan. They may be able to suggest an alternative medication.

Alcohol will not affect the way the medication works, but it is not advised to drink alcohol during a migraine attack.

If you experience drowsiness as a result of taking Sumatriptan, you should avoid driving and using machinery while using this medication.

For further information on precautions and interactions, read the patient information leaflet.
