Frequently Asked Questions

What is Sumatriptan 50mg?

Sumatriptan is an oral tablet medication used to treat migraines. It’s typically taken at a dosage of 50mg. Sumatriptan is taken at the start of a migraine attack in order to reduce the symptoms. It does not prevent migraine attacks, so you should not take it to try and prevent migraines.

How Does Sumatriptan 50mg Work?

Sumatriptan belongs to a class of medications known as Triptans. Triptans reduce the widening of blood vessels in the brain. It’s believed that migraines can be caused by the widening of blood vessels in the brain, so Triptans effectively counter this process.

How Should I Take Sumatriptan 50mg?

You should take a Sumatriptan tablet at the start of a migraine attack. If the symptoms of that attack do not subside after taking Sumatriptan, you should not take another tablet for the same attack. If you experience another migraine attack after two hours, you may need to take a second tablet.

When you are prescribed Sumatriptan, you will be told how much you can take in a 24-hour period. You must follow these instructions. If you are unsure, speak to your doctor. You can also sign up for our free Ask A Pharmacist service for answers to any health or prescription related concerns.

Is Sumatriptan 50mg Safe to Use?

Sumatriptan is safe to use if taken correctly at the right dosage. However, you may not be able to take Sumatriptan if you have certain conditions or take medications with adverse interactions with Sumatriptan.

Do not take Sumatriptan if:

  • You are allergic to any of the ingredients
  • You have heart problems
  • You have circulation problems
  • You’ve had a stroke
  • You have high blood pressure
  • You have a serious liver disease

Do not take Sumatriptan if you are taking any of the following medications:

  • Ergotamine
  • Isocarboxazid
  • Phenelzine
  • Tranylcypromine

You must talk to your doctor before taking Sumatriptan if you are on a course of SSRIs (Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors).

What are the Side Effects of Sumatriptan 50mg?

As with any form of medication, Sumatriptan can have side effects. These may include:

  • Tightness in the chest
  • Nausea
  • Hot flushes
  • Tingling or numbing sensations
  • Aching muscles
  • Tiredness
  • Dizziness
  • Temporary increase on blood pressure
  • Shortness of breath

Some of the side effects of Sumatriptan are similar to the symptoms of a migraine attack. As you take Sumatriptan during the start of an attack, it can be difficult to tell whether you are experiencing migraine symptoms, Sumatriptan side effects or a combination of both. If you do become concerned about the side effects of Sumatriptan, you should talk to your doctor or pharmacist.

Avoiding alcohol when taking Sumatriptan is a good idea. Migraine symptoms and Sumatriptan side effects can induce tiredness, dizziness and nausea, which are all exacerbated by alcohol.

If you are prescribed Sumatriptan, you should receive a Patient Information Leaflet outlining more possible side effects as well as further warning and precautions.

Are There Alternatives to Sumatriptan 50mg?

Yes, there are other Triptan medications available. These include Rizatriptan, which works by reducing the swelling of the blood vessels, and Zolmitriptan.

Can I Buy Sumatriptan 50mg Online?

Sumatriptan is available to buy online from e-Surgery from as little as £10.00.
