Medicines have benefits and some have risks. Always read the label and use only as directed. If symptoms persist or you have side effects see your health professional. Brands and generics both contain the same active ingredient(s) and are medically equivalent. Some brands are marketed under different names by the same manufacturing country depending on the country of origin.

Imigran ships from the UK.

Imigran Radis (sumatriptan succinate) is a triptan medication used to alleviate pain and other symptoms in migraine and cluster headaches. It works by narrowing blood vessels in the head, which become swollen during migraine and cluster headache episodes. It is not effective on other types of headaches.

Imigran Radis comes as tablets, distinct from regular Imigran tablets in that Imigran Radis is designed to be easily dissolved in fluids---ideal for patients who have difficultly swallowing whole tablets. Imigran Radis tablets can also be swallowed whole and are broken down in the stomach faster than regular tablets as well, providing slightly faster relief. Regular tablets may also be crushed and mixed with fluids or foods, but will not dissolve as readily.

How to Use Imigran Radis

Imigran Radis, like all forms of Imigran and all triptan medications, works best if taken right when a headache starts, though it will still help relieve symptoms if taken at later stages. The standard dose is 50 mg; this dose may be increased to 100 mg if 50 mg doesn't fully alleviate symptoms.

Administration is simple:

  • Take one dose of Imigran Radis at the earliest signs a headache is starting. Tablets can be swallowed whole or dissolved in fluids or wet foods, such as applesauce.
  • If pain and/or other symptoms are not sufficiently alleviated, or the headache returns, a second dose may be taken after two hours.
  • Do not exceed 300 mg in a 24 hour period.

Avoid mixing this medication with other drugs without first speaking to a doctor or pharmacist about potential interactions; resulting side effects can be serious. Of particular concern is SSRI, SNRI, and MAOI medications, which are usually prescribed to treat depression or similar mental illnesses.

While Imigran Radis works slightly faster than regular Imigran tablets, it is not the fastest delivery method. Some individuals---particularly those who experience cluster headaches---find faster methods to be considerably more effective. Alternative options are:

  • Imigran Tablets - classic tablets which take about 30 minutes to begin working.
  • Imigran Recovery - similar to classic tablets but only available in 50 mg doses. Unlike other forms of Imigran, Imigran Recovery is available over-the-counter in some parts of the world.
  • Imigran Nasal Spray - single-use nasal spray units that begin working in about 15 minutes.
  • Imigran Subject Injection - the fastest delivery method, injections start working in just 5 to 10 minutes. Those who experience severe migraines and cluster headache-sufferers usually find injections to be the best option.

Before Taking Imigran Radis

While generally a safe medication, some individuals are at greater risk of experiencing potentially dangerous side effects. Check with a doctor before use if there is a history of:

  • Any heart problems, angina or stroke
  • Vascular disease or poor blood circulation
  • Severe or untreated hypertension
  • Liver or kidney impairment

Fortunately, most side effects are mild and pass quickly. The most commonly-encountered side effects include:

  • Flushing or feeling warm, particularly in the chest area
  • Mild dizziness or lightheadedness
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Muscle cramps
  • Drowsiness

Serious side effects are rare if this medication is used properly, but do sometimes happen. Seek immediate medical attention if experiencing:

  • Chest pain (angina)
  • Severe stomach pain
  • Fainting
  • Rapid or irregular heartbeat
  • Difficulty breathing or wheezing
  • Rash, hives, or swelling on the face, eyes, or lips (allergic reaction)

An overdose of this medication, or accidental ingestion by children, pets, or any other unintended recipient, warrants emergency medical attention.
