Taro Sumatriptan Sun How to Take

Sumatriptan belongs to a class of medications known as 5-hydroxytryptamine agonists (also called "triptans"). It is used to treat migraine Headaches with or without aura (warning signs that occur prior to the onset of a migraine). The pain of migraine headaches is thought to be caused by dilated blood vessels inside the head. Sumatriptan relieves migraine headaches by constricting these blood vessels.

Sumatriptan is not recommended for other types of headache or for headache prevention.

In most people, sumatriptan eliminates or reduces the symptoms of migraine, including headache, nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to light and sound. Significant relief of migraine pain is usually experienced by about 10 to 15 minutes after using the injection, 15 minutes after using the nasal spray, and about 30 minutes after taking the oral tablets.

Taro Sumatriptan Sun may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Taro Sumatriptan Sun may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here.
