Full Description

Imigran Recovery 50mg Tablets (2 Tablets):  contains the active ingredient, sumatriptan, the most widely prescribed medicine in its class which has treated over 800 million migraines world-wide since its launch.


Sumatriptan is part of a class of drugs known as triptans. Sumatriptan acts like serotonin, the brain chemical involved in migraine, helping to return blood vessels to normal and calming the sensory nerves. The result is that Imigran Recovery, by acting on the root cause of migraine, can stop all the main migraine symptoms in their tracks: headache pain, sickness (nausea) and sensitivity to light (photophobia) and sound (phonophobia).


Imigran Recovery is fast; headache relief can start in just 30 minutes and sufferers can get complete relief of the migraine headache and the ability to return to normal daily activities in two hours. For sufferers that could be the difference between hours spent in bed, or being able to get on with their lives.
Imigran Recovery is highly effective; just one tablet can bring migraine relief in around 80% of sufferers.


One Imigran Recovery tablet is usually enough to stop migraine. Early treatment provides the best chance of stopping a migraine, so a tablet should be taken as soon as you are sure you have a migraine headache, rather than just an "everyday" headache. Importantly, Imigran Recovery can still treat migraine symptoms effectively, even if taken later in an attack.


For the majority of sufferers Imigran Recovery will bring relief from the four most common symptoms of migraine: however, if the symptoms start to come back, another tablet can be taken at least two hours after the first one. No more than two tablets should be taken within 24 hours or to treat the same attack. If you don't get any relief at all from the first Imigran Recovery tablet, then taking another tablet will not be effective.


How Imigran Recovery helps:

Imigran Recovery contains the active imgredient sumatriptan. Sumatriptan acts like serotonin, the brain chemical involved in migraine. It helps return the blood vessels to their normal size and calms the sensory nerves. This means Imigran Recovery acts on the root cause of migraine and relieves all the main migraine symptoms - headache, sickness (nausea) and sensitivity to light (photophobia) and sound (phonophobia).


Imigran Recovery can stop a migraine in its tracks. Headache relief can start in just 30 minutes. After two hours sufferers can have complete relief from their symptoms and can get on with their everyday activities as normal.
