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 Subject Injection (sumatriptan succinate) is a potent and fast-acting triptan medication, highly effective at treating migraine and cluster headaches. This medication is not effective on other types of headaches.
This medication is, as its name suggests, administered by injection. There are two purchasing options:
Each cartridge contains 6 mg sumatriptan, equivalent to one dose.
Many patients are understandably averse to administering medication via injection. This product, however, is delivered subcutaneously---just beneath the skin, rather than into muscle or veins. Needles used for subcutaneous injections are very short and fine. The pen injector included with the starter pack makes administration a breeze; simply load a cartridge into the pen, position it on the upper arms, upper thighs, buttocks, or other fatty area and press the button on the pen---fast, easy, and virtually painless. The insert included with the product contains detailed instructions about using the pen injector.
Taking Control with Imigran Subject Injection
Triptans are recognized around the world as one of the most effective migraine and cluster headache treatments available---in fact it's one of very few medications proven effective at managing pain from the notoriously difficult-to-treat cluster headaches. Like all triptan medications, Imigran Subject Injection only works to halt a headache in progress. If administered before symptoms are present it will not help prevent a headache from forming.
Effects are best if the medication is administered at the start of a headache, though it will still provide benefit if administered at later stages. Imigran Subject Injection is particularly effective in cluster headaches, and individuals who experience particularly severe migraines also tend to prefer injections over slower-acting formulations.
Standard treatment is simple:
Effects are felt within 5 to 10 minutes of administration. Side effects from Imigran Subject Injection, if experienced at all, are usually mild and pass quickly. Common side effects include:
Imigran Subject Injection can interact with other medications. In particular triptan medications like this product should not be used within a week of taking SSRI, SNRI, or MAOI medications (usually prescribed to treat anxiety, depression and similar mental conditions). Likewise medications containing ergotamine or other triptan medications should be avoided while taking this product. If in doubt, check with a doctor or pharmacist before mixing medications.
Other Imigran Options
Patients who would rather not use injections will be happy to hear there are several other formulations of this highly-effective treatment available. Most people with mild to moderate migraines find these other options work just fine, eliminating pain, auras and other symptoms. Those with severe migraines or who experience cluster headaches may find nothing works quite as well as Imigran Subject Injection.
