How Do Sumatriptan Tablets Work?
Sumatriptan tablets are designated triptans; this group of drugs is often also referred to as 5-HT1 receptor agonists. Triptans work by acting directly on receptors that ultimately reduces the swelling of the blood vessels in the brain that is thought to be a trigger and a cause for continuation of the migraine and its associated symptoms. They are effective during acute attacks (with or without an aura) as well as for during periods of chronic migraine suffering. An aura in this regard relates to the sensory distortions that often accompany a “classic migraine” and can be defined as light flashes, blind spots, or visual anomalies.
How Do I Take Sumatriptan Tablets?
When you buy sumatriptan tablets online it is important to know the correct dosage, as well as the frequency of the dose. The recommended dose of Sumatriptan tablets is a single 50 mg tablet per day. If symptoms are severe however, then some patients may require a 100 mg dose of sumatriptan. If the first measure of sumatriptan does not alleviate your symptoms, then you must not take a second dose for the same attack.
If you do find that you are responding to (or have responded to) the first dose of this migraine treatment, but your symptoms reoccur within a 24 hour period, then you may take a second dose. You must make sure that there is a minimum interval of 2 hours between the two doses. No more than 300 mg should be taken in any 24-hour period. If your symptoms are indeed severe, long-lasting, or a combination of these two things then we would recommend that you seek prompt medical attention.
