Description

Details

MIGRAITAN® is used to treat migraine. These tablets contain Sumatriptan succinate as active substance, which belong to a group of medicines called ‘triptans’ (5HT1-receptor agonists).

Migraine symptoms may be caused by the temporary swelling of blood vessels in the head due to a temporary imbalance in the body’s natural chemicals.

The tablets are believed to work on this imbalance and reduce the swelling of these blood vessels. The tablets help to take away the headache and other symptoms of a migraine attack such as feeling sick (nausea) and sensitivity to light and sound. They start to relieve migraine headache about 30 minutes after you take them

Knowledge

Sumatriptan is the active ingredient Migraitan. The tablets are believed to work on the imbalance of natural chemicals like serotonin and reduce the swelling of these blood vessels

Instructions

Please read product information leaflet before use

Adults (18-65 years of age)

The recommended dose is a single 50 mg tablet that should be swallowed whole with water. It is advisable that Sumibril/Migraitan be taken as soon as possible after the onset of a migraine headache although it is effective at whatever stage of the headache it is taken.

If there is a response to the first tablet but the symptoms recur, a second tablet may be taken. However, this must be at least 2 hours after the first tablet. No more than two 50 mg tablets (total dose 100mg) may be taken in any 24 hour period or to treat the same attack.

If there is no response to the first tablet, a second tablet should not be taken for the same attack
