Sumagran Active 50mg Tablets 2 tablets


Sumagran Active is used for the acute relief of migraine attacks, with or without what is known as an 'aura'. Auras may include visual disturbances such as brilliant flickering lights or blurring of vision; or sensory disturbances such as numbness or weakness of the limbs which can be a forewarning of an attack.

Sumagran Active is only suitable for patients who have a stable, well-established pattern of symptoms. It should not be used to prevent migraine attacks from occurring.

Migraine attacks are thought to be caused by the swelling of blood vessels in the brain. Sumatriptan helps to relieve the symptoms of a migraine attack by reducing the size of the blood vessels back to normal. Sumagran Active tablets help to relieve migraine headache and the associated symptoms of nausea and sensitivity to light and sound.

Sumagran Active does not relieve the symptoms of other headaches that are not migraine headaches.

Sumagran Active is available over the counter from your pharmacist in packs of two tablets for use in patients who have a stable, well-established pattern of symptoms. Sumagran Active is only suitable for patients between 18 and 65 years of age.

Sumagran Active can be taken in conjunction with Antinaus.

Each tablet contains: Sumatriptan (as succinate) 50mg

Directions & Precautions
Pharmacist Only Medicine. Always read the label and use strictly as directed. Your Pharmacist’s advice is required. If symptoms persist see your healthcare professional.

Take 1 tablet (50 or 100 milligrams) at the start of the migraine attack. It should work within 30 minutes.
If your migraine improves but then comes back, wait at least 2 hours before taking another tablet (50 or 100 milligrams).
Do not take more than 300 mg in 24 hours (6 of the 50 mg tablets or 3 of the 100 mg tablets).
If the first sumatriptan dose does not relieve your symptoms or help your migraine, do not take another sumatriptan dose for this same attack. It is unlikely to work.
