Imigran Nasal Spray is a medication that contains the active ingredient sumatriptan. Sumatriptan belongs to a class of drugs known as triptans, and it is commonly used to relieve migraine headaches. Imigran Nasal Spray is designed for nasal administration and is an alternative to oral tablets for individuals who may have difficulty swallowing during a migraine attack.

  1. Indications: Imigran Nasal Spray is indicated for the acute treatment of migraine attacks with or without aura (visual disturbances).

  2. Mechanism of Action: Sumatriptan works by narrowing the blood vessels in the brain and reducing the release of certain chemicals that contribute to the pain and inflammation associated with migraines.

  3. Nasal Administration: Imigran Nasal Spray is administered through the nostrils. It is designed for quick absorption through the nasal mucosa, providing a faster onset of action compared to oral tablets.

  4. Onset of Action: The nasal spray formulation is known for its rapid onset of action, making it suitable for individuals who may experience nausea and difficulty swallowing during a migraine attack.

  5. Dosage: The dosage of Imigran Nasal Spray is usually one spray (10 mg) into one nostril. If the migraine symptoms return or do not improve after the initial dose, a second dose may be taken at least two hours after the first dose.

  6. Limitations: The use of Imigran Nasal Spray is generally recommended for individuals with a clear diagnosis of migraine. It is not intended for the prevention of migraines or for the treatment of other types of headaches.

  7. Side Effects: Common side effects of sumatriptan may include a sensation of tingling or warmth, dizziness, drowsiness, or a feeling of pressure or heaviness in parts of the body. These effects are usually temporary.

  8. Contraindications: Imigran Nasal Spray is contraindicated in individuals with a history of heart disease, certain types of headaches, peripheral vascular disease, uncontrolled hypertension, or severe liver disease.

  9. Interaction with Other Medications: It's important to inform healthcare providers about all medications being taken, including over-the-counter drugs and supplements, as interactions may occur.

  10. Pregnancy and Breastfeeding: The use of sumatriptan during pregnancy or breastfeeding should be discussed with a healthcare provider, as there may be potential risks.
