Migraine is a common condition which causes severe headaches. Migraine headaches are often accompanied by other symptoms, for example nausea, sensitivity to light or vomiting.

There are many different ways of treating migraines, from over the counter medications to lifestyle changes. The first line treatment for migraine are non prescription painkillers. If you find that over the counter painkillers don’t help you cope with your symptoms you can try triptans.
Many migraine patients find that certain triggers cause them to suffer migraines. Identifying what causes migraine in your case and avoiding triggers can help you reduce the frequency with which you experience symptoms.
Triptans are a prescription medication for migraines. It is assumed that migraines are caused by blood vessels in your brain widening to an unusual extent. Triptans are believed to work by narrowing these enlarged blood vessels, thereby reducing the severity and duration of migraine attacks.
You should only take triptans as soon as you can feel a migraine coming on. The sooner you take them, the more effective they can be.
Triptans are not suitable for everyone and you need to get a prescription in order to buy most of them.
All triptans work best when taken as soon as you notice the first symptoms of a beginning migraine. Take one Sumatriptan tablet with a drink of water as soon as you can tell that you are getting a migraine. Swallow the tablet whole without chewing it.
If you have never taken Sumatriptan before, start with a 50mg dose. If your symptoms don’t improve significantly or if they come back you can check with your doctor whether you can take a higher dose of 100mg instead.
Imigran nasal spray contains sumatriptan and works in the same way as sumatriptan tablets. The nasal spray is convenient for migraine sufferers who feel nauseous during migraines and who find it difficult to swallow tablets. Just like the tablets, you need to use the nasal spray as soon as you notice the first symptoms.
Each single use Imigran Nasal Spray contains just one dose - so make sure that you read the instructions on how use it carefully first.
Migraine is very common and it is estimated that over eight million people in the UK encounter migraines on a regular basis.
Migraines can cause the following symptoms:
- sensitivity to light
- sensitivity to noise
- throbbing pain on one or both sides of your head
Some patients experience migraines with aura, which means that they also experience symptoms such as:
- problems with their vision
- numbness of the face or limbs
- problems with speech
Why some people have migraines is not entirely clear. It is assumed that migraines occur when blood vessels surrounding your brain widen.
