Prescription of Migraine Medicines


Serotonin (SHT) agonists
Serotonin agonists are used when attacks occur.

How they work
They increase the action of serotonin - a neurotransmittor - on blood vessel walls and in the brain. This causes vasoconstriction and increases clotting. It relieves the painful vaso-dilation of migraine.

. Sumatriptan - also known as Imigran
. Naratriptan, Rizatriptan, Zolmitriptan are new variants of this preparation.

Serotonin agonists can reduce blood flow to heart muscle and raise blood pressure. They cause drowsiness at the beginning of treatment.

Sometimes crying or laughing
are the only options left,
and laughing feels better right now.
