Imigran Recovery

Product code: IMI74U

(incl VAT)
Acts on the root cause of Migraine.

Imigran Recovery is used to treat migraine. These tablets contain sumatriptan, which belongs to a group of medicines called triptans. Migraine symptoms may be caused by the temporary swelling of blood vessels in the head due to a temporary imbalance in the body's natural chemicals. Imigran Recovery tablets are believed to work on this imbalance and reduce the swelling of these blood vessels. Imigran helps to take away the headache and other symptoms of a migraine attack such as feeling sick (nausea) and sensitivity to light and sound.

Imigran Recovery starts to relieve migraine headache about 30 minutes after you take them.

Don't take Imigran Recovery:
  • unless you suffer from migraines (a doctor or pharmacist needs to confirm this).
  • if you are trying to prevent a migraine attack.

  • if you have heart problems.
  • if you have had a stroke.
  • if you have high blood pressure or are being treated for it.
