What is Imigran?

Imigran is a prescription medication that is used for the treatment of acute migraine attacks. The active ingredient in these tablets is sumatriptan succinate. These tablets do not prevent migraine attacks, but they help to relieve the symptoms. 

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. It works by reducing the widened blood vessels
