Suminat 25 mg helps to relieve symptoms of migraine headaches. The active ingredient of the medicine Sumatriptan effectively treats headache, pain, and other migraine symptoms, including vomiting, nausea, and sensitivity to light or sound. The anti-migraine treatment helps you return to your normal routine and may decrease your need for other pain relief medications. Suminat belongs to a class of drugs known as triptans that work by affecting certain natural substances that cause the narrowing of blood vessels in the brain. It is also known to relieve pain by affecting the activities of certain nerves in the brain. The medicine is not useful in preventing future migraine episodes or reducing the number of attacks.
Suminat 25 mg is available in the form of a tablet that you may take before or after consuming food. The dosage of the drug is generally based on the severity of pain. If there is no improvement in your symptoms, do not take more tablets before discussing with your doctor. If you get some relief or your headache comes back, you may take the second tablet at least two hours after the first dose.

He will also instruct you on how to take medicine and monitor you for serious side effects such as chest pain. Speak to your doctor for more details.
