Predator Nutrition Sumatriptan Review

Pharmacy medicines are provided by a licensed UK pharmacy and each medicine involves customers certifying the medicine is applicable for them which in turn is assessed by a pharmacist.

Silverwood Pharmacy is a licensed UK pharmacy which is able to dispense pharmacy medicines (Pmeds) to users under the supervision of their superintendent pharmacist.

 

Sumatriptan tablets are for the acute relief of migraine attacks, with or without aura. Sumatriptan should only be used where there is a clear diagnosis of migraines. Each sumatriptan tablet contains a single dose of sumatriptan, which belongs to a group of medicines called triptans (also known as 5-HT1 receptor agonists).

Sumatriptan is for the acute intermittent treatment of migraines. It should not be used prophylactically. The recommended dose of sumatriptan should not be exceeded. It is advisable that sumatriptan be given as early as possible after the onset of migraine attack but it is equally effective at whatever stage of the attack it is administered.

Adults: The following recommended dosages should not be exceeded. The recommended dose of oral sumatriptan is a single 50 mg tablet. Some patients may require 100 mg.

If the patient has responded to the first dose, but the symptoms recur a second dose may be given provided that there is a minimum interval of 2 hours between the two doses. No more than 300 mg should be taken in any 24-hour period.

Patients who do not respond to the prescribed dose of sumatriptan should not take a second dose for the same attack.

In these cases the attack can be treated with paracetamol, acetylsalicylic acid or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. Sumatriptan tablets may be taken for subsequent attacks. Sumatriptan is recommended as monotherapy for the acute treatment of migraine and should not be given concomitantly with ergotamine or derivatives of ergotamine (including methysergide).
