What is Imigran Nasal Spray?

Imigran Nasal Spray is prescribed for the treatment of acute migraine attacks. It may also be prescribed for cluster headaches.

Imigran Nasal Spray contains the serotonin agonist sumatriptan, a type of painkiller that is specifically used for migraine relief.

This medicine is only available on prescription from your doctor and can be used as soon as you have a migraine headache. It should not be used to stop a migraine from coming on, but only when it has already started to develop.

How does Imigran Nasal Spray work?

Although we don't fully understand what causes a migraine attack, it is thought to be caused by changes in the brain's chemical levels.

This can lead to the brain sending confused signals resulting in the widening of blood vessels that can cause nausea and headache. Some people may have migraine triggers, such as specific foods or drinks.

Imigran Nasal Spray contains sumatriptan, a type of medicine known as a 5HT1-receptor agonist or triptan. Triptans stimulate the brain's serotonin receptors found on blood vessels, causing them to narrow. This relieves migraine symptoms such as headache, nausea and sensitivity to sound or light.

How to use Imigran Nasal Spray

  • For adults aged 18 and over, use one 20mg spray in just one nostril
