Description of Imigran Nasal Spray
What is the Imigran Nasal Spray?
Imigran Nasal Spray is a medication available in the spray form used for relieving symptoms of migraines. It contains an active ingredient sumatriptan, belonging to the drugs classed as 'triptans'. It can be used as a secondary medicine if painkillers (ibuprofen, paracetamol) do not work.
How does it work?
Sumatriptan is used for relieving symptoms of migraines. It is an active ingredient belonging to the drugs classed as 'triptans'. Sumatriptan specifically works by selectively activating certain serotonin receptors, known as 5-HT1B and 5-HT1D receptors, which are found on the blood vessels in the brain. By activating these receptors, sumatriptan causes the blood vessels to constrict, reducing the blood flow to the brain and relieving the symptoms of migraines, such as headache, nausea, and sensitivity to light and sound.

It is useful for you to relieve a migraine or cluster headache. It is, however, not suitable if you have;
