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.
