Generic Imitrex is used to treat migraine symptoms, severe and throbbing headache often going hand in hand with sickness and light sensitiveness. Imitrex is included in the class of medicines called selective serotonin receptor agonists, or “triptans”. It starts working by narrowing blood vessels and intercepting pain signals intended to the brain. Active ingredient Sumatriptan is a gold standard for treating migraine.
Imigran, Formigran, Sumatripta and Sumax are some of the popular Imitrex’s analogs.
The drug is manufactured by the GSK company.
