Generic name: SUMATRIPTAN SUCCINATE 25mg
Dosage form: tablet, film coated
Medically reviewed by Drugs.com. Last updated on Dec 4, 2019.
The recommended dose of IMITREX tablets is 25 mg, 50 mg, or 100 mg. Doses of 50 mg and 100 mg may provide a greater effect than the 25-mg dose, but doses of 100 mg may not provide a greater effect than the 50-mg dose. Higher doses may have a greater risk of adverse reactions [see Clinical Studies (14)].
If the migraine has not resolved by 2 hours after taking IMITREX tablets, or returns after a transient improvement, a second dose may be administered at least 2 hours after the first dose. The maximum daily dose is 200 mg in a 24-hour period.
Use after IMITREX Injection
If the migraine returns following an initial treatment with IMITREX (sumatriptan succinate) injection, additional single IMITREX tablets (up to 100 mg/day) may be given with an interval of at least 2 hours between tablet doses.
The safety of treating an average of more than 4 headaches in a 30-day period has not been established.
