A Pharmacist Compares Triptan Migraine Medications


Prescription migraine medications in the triptan class off drugs are available in oral forms, nasal spray, and injectables. This article will help you compare the different triptans with respect to onset of action, duration of relief, side effects, and contraindications.

The only injectable triptan on the market has been one called Imitrex. It uses a needle to deliver its dose. A new triptan called Sumavel DosePro is expected out very soon. Its claim to fame is that it is an injectable triptan that does not use a needle.
