Were you looking for information about Imitrex? Imetrex is a common misspelling of Imitrex.
Imitrex® (sumatriptan succinate) is a medicine that may be prescribed to help relieve the symptoms of a migraine that has already started. During a migraine, the blood vessels in the head can expand. This drug works by narrowing these blood vessels and returning them to their normal state.
The medication is designed to be taken only after migraine symptoms begin, not beforehand. The medicine comes in a tablet form, as a nasal spray, or as an injection. It should be taken as soon as possible once the migraine starts.
While most people have no problems while taking the medicine, side effects are a possibility. Some of the more common side effects of this product include dizziness, tingling, and facial flushing.
