Sumatriptan is used to treat headaches. It narrows vessels around the brain and reduces bodily substances that can trigger headaches and migraine symptoms. It is used to treat migraines and cluster headaches. It cannot be used to prevent potential attacks. It should not be used to treat tension headaches or headaches that cause loss of movement on one side of the body. Injected sumatriptan is not approved for patients under 18.
Sumatriptan Injection Instructions:
Used as-needed. Take as soon as you feel symptoms. Do not use more than prescribed dose. Injection is injected underneath skin. Do not use if medicine in vial looks cloudy, has particulates, or has changed colors. Do not inject more than twice in 24 hours. If symptoms do not completely go away, call doctor before using another injection. Use syringes only once and dispose of it properly following local laws. Dispose medicine after expiration date passes.

Do not use if you’ve taken a MAO inhibitor in the last 14 days. Inform doctor of all drugs you take and medical history, especially cardiovascular problems (including “mini-strokes”), liver problems, if your headache feels different from usual migraines, and if you have risk factors for coronary artery disease such as diabetes, smoking, and family history. Do not breast-feed within 12 hours after taking sumatriptan.

What's the difference between generic drugs and brand name drugs?
What's the difference between the branded products you sell and the ones I get locally?
The branded drugs we sell are chemically and therapeutically no different from the ones you get in your local pharmacy. They both generally come from the same exact manufacturer. Generally, the main difference* is in the packaging and the price. Our packaging may be different from what you get locally, but we're also much cheaper.
* Other differences may include differences in trade name, form, and general appearance.
Why are there packaging differences?
Due to differences in government regulation, different countries have different packaging requirements. For example, a product in Canada (or any other country) will have different packaging than the same product in the US even though both drugs are chemically and therapeutically equivalent and are generally manufactured by the same exact company.
Why are your drugs so much cheaper?
Due to government price controls, medications from Canada and many other countries are often significantly cheaper than in the United States. Also, other countries may have more affordable generic versions of drugs, which may not yet be available in the US.
