Some of the items on this page may be marked "Requires Authorization". Why's this? Kiwi must verify the customer's medical history in order to ensure the medication is necessary and used according the direction of a licensed medical practitioner. If you have already demonstrated this, then you may be able to view this product. If not, please email us using the contact page. 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 Recovery (sumatriptan succinate) offers an effective solution to migraine pain, auras, light and sound sensitivity, nausea, and other associated symptoms. Some patients also find it helpful in treating cluster headaches, but in most cases faster-acting formulas are more effective.

This product is very similar to regular Imigran tablets; the difference is that Imigran Recovery is only available in 50 mg tablets, while the regular tablets are available in higher doses. Because of its lower strength, Imigran Recovery is available with pharmacist approval and does not require a prescription from a doctor.

Taking Imigran Recovery

Like all Imigran products, Imigran Recovery works best if taken when a migraine first starts. It will usually still provide benefit if taken at later stages---some patients find it every bit as effective---but others find it doesn't work quite as well.

Treatment is typically as follows:

  • Take one dose (50 mg, one tablet) at the earliest symptoms of a migraine.
  • If pain and/or other symptoms are not sufficiently alleviated, or the headache returns, a second dose may be taken after two hours.
  • Tablets can be crushed, chewed or dissolved, but they are very bitter. Those who have difficulty swallowing tablets may want to consider Imigran Radis, which is designed to be dissolvable (but will still taste bitter).

The starting dose with regular Imigran tablets is also 50 mg. Patients with moderate to severe migraines, and those who experience cluster headaches, often find 50 mg doesn't sufficiently alleviate pain and other symptoms. These individuals often start with 100 mg doses, which is only offered in regular tablets. However, two 50 mg Imigran Recovery tablets will provide the same benefit.

Effects are felt after about 30 minutes and last several hours. The medication works by narrowing blood vessels in the brain which, for unknown reasons, become swollen during a migraine or cluster headache. Imigran Recovery is not a painkiller and will not be effective on other types of headaches.

Other medications, such as painkillers, are sometimes taken along with triptan medications. Patients are strongly advised to check with a doctor or pharmacist before doing so; Imigran Recovery is known to interact with some other medications.

Precautions Before Use

Most people use Imigran Recovery without any adverse reactions. Some patients, however, are at greater risk of experiencing complications from using this medication. Discuss potential risks with a doctor prior to using Imigran Recovery if there is any history of:

  • Any heart problems
  • Stroke
  • Angina
  • Vascular disease
  • Liver or kidney impairment
  • Severe or untreated hypertension

As mentioned above, Imigran Recovery is known to produce negative effects when mixed with some other medications. Do not use this product if also taking:

  • SSRIs, SNRIs, MAOIs and some other antidepressants
  • Medications containing ergotamine
  • Other medications containing triptans
  • St John’s Wort

The effects of Imigran Radis on unborn or nursing babies is unclear; use should be avoided while pregnant or nursing unless explicitly instructed otherwise by a doctor.

Other Imigran Formulations

Imigran offers a range of products containing the same active ingredient as this one. The speed at which the medication begins to work is an important consideration for those who suffer from cluster headaches or severe migraines; faster-acting typically means better results. The full line of products can be found below:

  • Imigran Tablets - effects are felt about 30 minutes after administration. Available in 50 mg and 100 mg doses.
  • Imigran Radis - similar to regular tablets, this formula is designed to be dissolved in fluids. Effects are felt slightly faster than regular tablets. Ideal for patients who have difficulty swallowing whole tablets.
  • Imigran Nasal Spray - effects are felt about 15 minutes after administration. This is sometimes a suitable alternative to injections for cluster headaches.
  • Imigran Subject Injection - starts to work 5 to 10 minutes after administration. Ideal for cluster headaches and severe migraines that react better to fast-acting treatment.

Some individuals simply don't respond to Imigran. If no effects are felt at all from Imigran Recovery, consult a doctor about alternative treatments. There are many out there!
