What is Imitrex?
Imitrex (sumatriptan) lessens the severity of migraine and cluster headaches, and is most effective when used at the onset of symptoms. If administered promptly, triptans (tryptamine-based drugs) like Imitrex can abort a headache or end it quickly. They cannot, however, prevent headaches or cure a person of migraines.
Imitrex is available in three forms: a tablet taken orally, a nasal spray, and as a subcutaneous injection administered in pre-measured does through a prefilled auto-injector. The injectable form takes effect faster than the other forms, but wears off faster as well.
What does Simplefill Provide?
Migraine and cluster headaches can be debilitating, to the point that patients’ daily routines are interrupted frequently and the quality of life is diminished. Being able to maintain a reliable supply of Imitrex is essential to a migraine sufferer’s ability to participate fully in work, social, and family activities.
Simplefill can ensure that you never have to go without the Imitrex you count on to knock out your headaches. We’re here to help you get out from under the financial burden of paying for your Imitrex.
How Does Imitrex Work?
Imitrex, like other triptans, stimulates the production of the neurotransmitter serotonin, a brain chemical that reduces inflammation and calms overactive pain nerves. Imitrex is particularly effective in decreasing the activity of the trigeminal nerve, which is associated with cluster headaches. In many cases, Imitrex can abort a cluster headache within a half-hour of administration.
Although the exact mechanism of a triptan’s action is not fully understood, it appears to involve inhibiting the release of CGRP (Calcitonin gene-related peptide). CGRP is believed to sensitize certain neurons that contribute to the pain experienced by migraine sufferers.
