What is a Generic Drug?

A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.

The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.

Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.

    Imitrex Uses and indications:

    Sumatriptan 50 - 100mg Imitrex (Sumatriptan)

    Sumatriptan 50mg and Sumatriptan 100mg both are used for treating migraines. Imitrex helps to relieve headaches, pain, and other migraine symptoms which include nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to light and sound.

    Sumatriptan belongs to a class of drugs called triptans. It affects a natural substance in our body that causes the narrowing of blood vessels in the brain.

    Imitrex for migraine is considered as one of the perfect medicines to help get rid of headaches and symptoms of headaches. You can purchase Imitrex online from Canada Pharmacy.


    Sumatriptan 50mg and Sumatriptan 100mg both are to be taken orally; with or without food, as directed by your physician as soon as you experience the first signs of migraine.

    Imitrex for migraine should be taken in the dosage prescribed to you by your doctor. Your dosage depends on the severity of your headache and how you respond to the treatment. If your condition does not improve, then do not continue taking this medicine after talking to your doctor.

    If Imitrex helps in partly relieving your headache or if your headache comes back, then take another dosage at least 2 hours after the first dose. Do not take more than 200 milligrams in a day.

    If you are using medications for migraine attacks on more than 10 days a month, then Imitrex might make your headaches worse. Do not use the medication for longer than directed.
