Sumagran general information

What is Sumagran used for?

Sumagran tablets 100mg are used to relieve acute migraine attacks with or without aura, which is the perception of visual disturbances and/or smells and are usually the first sign that a migraine headache is on its way. Sumagran tablets 100mg are specific for treatment of migraine attack to relieve headache and other symptoms, including nausea and sensitivity to light, but they are not used to prevent migraine headaches. You can use Sumagran 100 at any stage of a migraine attack, but it is more effective if taken as soon as possible after the first signs of headache and/or aura. Sumagran 100 is not effective for treatment of other types of headache.

How does Sumagran work?

Sumagran tablets 100mg contain sumatriptan, which is a member of the group of drugs called triptans and is a serotonin agonist that mimics the action of serotonin (also known as 5-hydroxytryptamine, or 5-HTP). Serotonin is a brain chemical that is involved in control of mood, pain sensation, sexual behaviour, and sleep, as well as constriction of blood vessels. Migraine is thought to be caused by dilatation or widening of blood vessels in the head due to one of many migraine triggers, which in turn stimulates nearby sensory nerves so that you feel pain. Sumatriptan in Sumagran 100 stimulates the serotonin receptors in these expanded blood vessels making them contract again (vasoconstriction) and inhibits trigeminal nerve activity, relieving pain. Both actions are thought to contribute to the anti-migraine action of sumatriptan and relieve headache and other symptoms of a migraine attack.

What does Sumagran contain?

Sumagran tablets 100mg contain the active ingredient sumatriptan succinate, which is a serotonin agonist used to relieve symptoms of a migraine attack. Sumagran also contains croscarmellose sodium, microcrystalline cellulose, lactose monohydrate, and opadry pink 40L14838.

Treating migraine headache with Sumagran

Sumagran tablets 100mg contain sumatriptan, a serotonin agonist that mimics the action of serotonin, and are used to relieve acute migraine attacks with or without aura, which is the perception of visual disturbances and/or smells called and are usually the first sign that a migraine headache is on its way. Sumatriptan in Sumagran 100 interacts with specific receptors on blood vessels in the head which have become vasodilated (widened), due to one of many possible migraine triggers, causing them to contract again back to normal. This action along with interaction with the trigeminal nerve to block pain, relieves the headache and other symptoms of migraine, including nausea and sensitivity to light.

What are the side effects of Sumagran?

The most commonly reported side effects when taking Sumagran include dizziness, drowsiness, sensory disturbance including, tingling, pricking, or numbness of the skin (paraesthesia), loss of sensitivity to pain or touch (hypoesthesia), shortness of breath, sensations of heaviness, pain, sensations of heat or cold, pressure or tightness, weakness, fatigue.

You should not use Sumagran if you:

  • have had myocardial infarction or have ischaemic heart disease, coronary vasospasm (Prinzmetal's angina), peripheral vascular disease, or a history of cerebrovascular accident (CVA) or transient ischaemic attack (TIA)
  • have liver disease or hypertension
  • are using medicines that interact with Sumagran, including ergotamine or derivatives of ergotamine (including methysergide), monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs)

What medications interact with Sumagran?

Several medications interact with Sumagran and should either not be taken while you are taking Sumagran or only after discussion and instruction from your doctor:

  • Ergot derivatives including methysergide (also for migraine headaches) should not be taken 24 hours before to 6 hours after dose of Sumagran
  • MAOI antidepressants should not be taken within 14 days of Sumagran
  • Other serotonin agonist antidepressants like SSRIs; SNRIs.

How should Sumagran be taken?

You can take your Sumagran tablets 100mg at any stage of a migraine attack, but it is more effective if taken as soon as possible after the first signs of headache and/or aura. You should take one Sumagran tablet 100mg as recommended by your doctor, swallowed whole with a glass of water, with or without food. You should not take another dose of Sumagran 100mg for the same migraine, but you can take another dose if you have another migraine attack in the next 24 hours, provided you do not take more than 300mg in a 24 hour period.

How should Sumagran be stored?

You should store your Sumagran tablets 100mg below 30°C in a cool dry place, well out of reach of children.
