Contain the active ingredient : Sumatriptan, which is a type of medicine called a serotonin (or 5HT) agonist, more commonly known as a 'triptan'. It's a painkiller specifically used to relieve migraine attacks.
The cause of migraine attacks is not fully understood, but is thought to involve changes in the levels of chemicals in the brain. The throbbing pain of migraine headaches is a result of blood vessels in the brain widening or swelling.
Sumatriptan acts on serotonin (or 5HT) receptors that are found on blood vessels in the brain, causing them to narrow. It's also thought to inhibit the action of the trigeminal nerve. These actions relieve the headache and other symptoms that you may get with your migraine, such as feeling sick or sensitivity to light or sound.
Imigran recovery starts working within about half an hour of taking a tablet.
