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.
