Suminat-100 general information

What is Suminat-100 used for?

Suminat-100 100mg tablets (generic Imigran) 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. Suminat-100 rapid release tablets 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 Suminat-100 rapid release tablets 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. Suminat-100 is not used for treatment of other types of headache.

How does Suminat-100 work?

Suminat-100 100mg tablets contain sumatriptan, which is a member of the group of drugs called tryptans and is a serotonin agonist that mimics the action of serotonin (also known as 5-hydroxytryptamine, or 5-HT). Serotonin is a brain chemical that is involved in control of mood, pain sensation, sexual behaviour, sleep, as well as dilation (widening) and constriction (narrowing) 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 Suminat-100 rapid release tablets stimulates the serotonin receptors in these expanded blood vessels making them narrow 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. Suminat-100 rapid release tablets are formulated using rapid release fast disintegration technology. They work is the same way as other sumatriptan-containing migraine tablets but are effective sooner, usually within two hours, because they dissolve faster in the stomach after swallowing. Therefore, the active ingredient sumatriptan is released more rapidly, which speeds up absorption into the blood and reduces the time taken to reach its target receptors in the brain.
