How Suminat Injection works

Migraine headaches are thought to result from the dilatation (swelling) of blood vessels in the head. SUMINAT AUTO INJECTION works by constricting (narrowing) the blood vessels in the head, stops transmission of pain signals to the brain, and blocks the release of chemicals that cause nausea and other migraine symptoms. This relieves the migraine attack.

FAQs

Q. I have been prescribed Suminat. Can I take other migraine medicines, similar to Suminat, with it?

Suminat belongs to a family of tryptamine-based drugs called Triptans. You should not take another triptan along with Suminat. Taking two triptans together may trigger a heart attack and may also result in an increase in blood pressure.

Q. Does migraine run in families?

Migraines may run in families. Migraines occur more often in women than men. It has been noticed that some women, but not all, have fewer migraines when they are pregnant.

Q. How do I know migraine attack is about to start?

Some people develop aura before getting a migraine attack. It may include visual problems, such as seeing flashing lights, zig-zag patterns or blind spots, numbness, dizziness, or a tingling sensation like pins and needles, or feeling off balance. You may also have difficulty speaking and loss of consciousness, although this is unusual.

Q. Can I take Suminat with propranolol?

Yes, you can take propranolol and Suminat together. However, since Propranolol may cause an increase in levels of Suminat, so you should take 5 mg dose of Suminat and not 10 mg.

Q. When should I start taking the medicines used to prevent migraine?

Medicines for prevention of migraine are usually used if you have tried avoiding possible triggers but are still experiencing migraines. You may also be prescribed these medicines if you experience very severe migraine attacks, or if your attacks happen frequently.

Q. Can Suminat cause liver damage?

No, Suminat does not cause liver damage, but you should let your doctor know if you have any liver problem, before taking Suminat.
