Sumatriptan Tablets 50mg and 100mg
Buy Sumatriptan Tablets for Migraine
Migraine symptoms may be caused by the temporary widening of blood vessels in the head. Sumatriptan is believed to reduce the widening of these blood vessels. Sumatriptan tablets work by stimulating receptors called serotonin receptors 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 widened blood vessels and helps to take away the headache and relieve other symptoms of a migraine attack, such as feeling or being sick (nausea or vomiting) and sensitivity to light and sound.

|About Sumatriptan Tablets|
Each Sumatriptan tablet contains a single dose of sumatriptan. Sumatriptan belongs to a group of medicines called triptans (also known as 5-HT1 receptor agonists), which are used to treat migraine headache. Sumatriptan works only when a migraine attack has started. It will not stop you from getting an attack. You must not use Sumatriptan to prevent a migraine attack.
