Order Migraine Treatment
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. You can obtain both your prescription and your medication from Zava.
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.
As with other triptan tablets, you need to use Maxalt melt oral tablets as soon as you can feel the symptoms of a migraine coming on. You don’t need to swallow Maxalt melt tablets. Instead, you need to keep them in your mouth until they have dissolved completely. You don’t need to have a drink with Maxalt melt tablets, which makes them a convenient choice for when you’re travelling or on the go.
They are also useful for migraine sufferers who experience nausea and vomiting during their migraines, as your body absorbs the medicine through the mucus membranes in your mouth. Vomiting will not stop Maxalt melt tablets from working.
You should take one 10mg tablet. If your symptoms don’t improve significantly or return within 24 hours you can take a second 10mg tablet. You have to wait at least two hours before taking a second dose.
Buccastem tablets are a medication used to treat nausea. If you feel that you can eat you should take Buccastem M after food.
Take one tablet and put it under your upper lip, as high up as possible between your lip and your gums. Most people find that they can’t feel the tablet after a few minutes and it will dissolve within 1 - 2 hours.
Don’t swallow or chew the tablet, as this will make it less effective. You also mustn’t push it around with your tongue.
