Order Migraine Treatment Online

What is Migraine?

A migraine is a throbbing, intense headache that can affect people of all ages. The cause of migraine is not known. It is important to note that migraine is different to a normal headache.

Our doctors can prescribe sumatriptan (Imigran) tablets and Imigran sprays. If simple painkillers and anti sickness medicines consistently fail to relieve migraine attacks, then the most popular modern remedies are the triptan group of drugs such as sumatriptan.

We provide this service for patients who have previously been diagnosed with migraine and who wish to obtain medicine to treat migraine. It is only for patients who can recognise the symptoms of migraine.

All services provided by Anytime Doctor are safe, fast and confidential. You can obtain treatment within the privacy of your home and without the inconvenience of waiting for an appointment.

Description

Sumatriptan is available both in tablet form and as a nasal spray. Sumatriptan works by stimulating receptors called serotonin (or 5HT) receptors that are found in the brain. The natural substance serotonin normally acts on these receptors, causing blood vessels in the brain to narrow. Sumatriptan mimics the action of serotonin by directly stimulating the serotonin receptors in the brain. This narrows the blood vessels and so relieves the pain of migraine headaches.

Side Effects
  • flushing
  • feeling sick (nausea)
  • vomiting
Please Note

All medication can cause side effects. Details of all side effects, including rare side effects to be aware of, are listed in the patient information leaflet (PIL). When completing your medical questionnaire it is very important that you answer the questions truthfully. This is to ensure your doctor has a full picture of your medical history before prescribing. List all medicines you are already taking, including non-prescription and herbal medicines.

In order to manage some conditions online, we are required to inform your GP about the medicine you have been prescribed. This will be clearly highlighted during your consultation.

The symptoms of migraine can vary from person to person, which is why it is important to be diagnosed before ordering treatment.

During a migraine attack, you may experience some of the following symptoms:

  • throbbing or pulsing pain
  • pain that may present on one side or both sides of your head
  • sensitivity to light and sounds
  • sensitivity to smells and touch
  • nausea and vomiting
  • blurred or double vision
  • fainting or feeling lightheaded

Sumatriptan is a painkiller specifically used to relieve migraine attacks and is considered effective if you follow your doctor's prescribing instructions.

You should start with the lower dose of the tablets. Tablets come in 50mg and 100mg strength. Try 50mg first. The dose of sumatriptan should be taken as early as possible after the migraine headache has started, though it is also effective if taken at a later stage during the migraine attack.
