What is Imigran and what does it treat?


Imigran Nasal Spray is an effective treatment for migraine symptoms. It contains sumatriptan, which is one of several ‘triptan’ medications and the most commonly used. It is a popular alternative to other triptans for those who cannot or prefer not to swallow tablets. Imigran Nasal Spray is available in 10mg and 20mg strengths in single-use sprays.

How does Imigran work?

It is not fully understood what causes migraines to manifest. However, it is believed that the throbbing pain is caused by a dilation of the blood vessels in the brain. Sumatriptan is an agonist of serotonin. Serotonin agonists mimic serotonin’s activity by stimulating specific brain receptors. This causes the affected blood vessels to constrict, which reduces the throbbing and alleviates the pain.

Imigran Nasal Spray is most effective when administered at the onset of a migraine. Nonetheless, this treatment will still provide some relief if administered later during an episode. The medication is applied to a single nostril and should take effect within 30 minutes. Although triptans do not prevent migraines from occurring, they are safe to take in conjunction with migraine preventatives such as propranolol.

What is Migraine?

Migraines are a common condition in the United Kingdom. Approximately 25 percent of women and 8 percent of men suffer from this severe form of headache. Multiple factors can trigger migraines, but genetics is believed to play a role. This means that you are more likely to develop migraines if a close relative also has the condition.

Migraine attacks can be incapacitating; a severe migraine attack can completely disrupt your day with nausea and excruciating throbbing pain. Many individuals also experience heightened sensitivity to noise, light, and odours. The nasal spray Imigran will also help alleviate these symptoms.

Auras, which precede migraine attacks, are experienced by approximately one in four migraine sufferers. Auras may manifest as visual cues, such as distorted or blurred vision. If the aura is experienced without a subsequent migraine, this is known as a silent migraine.

Migraine attacks typically last a few hours, but they can last up to three days. After a severe migraine has subsided, the patient may continue to experience fatigue for several days.

A migraine attack can be triggered by a variety of factors. This consists of:

A poor diet
An excessive amount of caffeine
absence of sleep
For some women, their monthly cycle can trigger migraine attacks.
