Imigran Recovery Tablets acts on the root cause of migraines, offering much needed relief to the four main symptoms for sufferers; headache, nausea, and sensitivity to light and sound.

The active ingredient is sumatriptan, which acts like serotonin - the chemical in the brain involved in migraines, helping to return blood vessels to normal, while calming the sensory nerves.

Imigran Recovery works fast, providing initial relief in just 30 minutes and the ability to return to normal daily activities. It is also highly effective and just one tablet can usually being enough for around 80% of sufferers.

Additional information for migraine sufferers:-

During a migraine attack, the blood vessel in the head widen. It is thought that this causes the pain and discomfort. Imigran Recovery tablets narrow the blood vessels and reduces the pain.

Painkillers which dissolve in water will be absorbed faster and so will tablets that melt in the mouth. Examples of these are Solpadine soluble and Nurofen Meltlets.
