WITHDRAWN: Oral sumatriptan for acute migraine. Migraine is a common neurovascular disorder characterized by recurrent episodes of disabling headache, autonomic nervous system dysfunction, and, in some patients, neurological aura symptoms. Sumatriptan is one of a class of selective serotonin 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT1B/1D) agonists (triptans) thought to relieve migraine attacks by several mechanisms, including cranial vasoconstriction and peripheral and central neural inhibition.To describe (...) and assess the evidence from randomized controlled trials (RCTs) concerning the efficacy and tolerability of oral sumatriptan for the treatment of a single acute attack of migraine in adults.We searched the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (Cochrane Library, Issue 4, 2001), MEDLINE (1966 through November 2001), and reference lists of articles and books.We included double-blind RCTs comparing oral sumatriptan (100 mg, 50 mg, 25 mg) with placebo, no intervention, other drug treatments

3. Treatment of acute migraine with subcutaneous sumatriptan. (PubMed)

Treatment of acute migraine with subcutaneous sumatriptan. Sumatriptan succinate, a 5-HT1D receptor agonist, constricts human cranial arteries. Two parallel-group trials for treatment of acute migraines were conducted in the United States. Adult patients were randomized and given either 6 mg of sumatriptan succinate subcutaneously (n = 734) or placebo (n = 370). At 1 hour, sumatriptan was significantly more effective than placebo in reducing moderate or severe headache pain to mild or no pain (...) (70% vs 22%), in completely relieving headaches (49% vs 9%), and in improving clinical disability (76% vs 34%). Sumatriptan also reduced nausea and photophobia significantly better than placebo. Patients with residual migraines received another injection; those who had originally received sumatriptan received either a second active injection (n = 187) or placebo (n = 178), while those who had received placebo received a second placebo injection (n = 335). Statistical evidence for benefit of second

4. Sumatriptan as a treatment for cyclic vomiting syndrome: a clinical trial. (PubMed)

Sumatriptan as a treatment for cyclic vomiting syndrome: a clinical trial. Cyclic vomiting syndrome (CVS) is associated with migraine. This study aimed to evaluate the efficacy of sumatriptan in treating CVS.Twelve patients were enrolled in this trial. Sumatriptan was administered either subcutaneously [(age x 4 + 20)/100 x 3 mg] or by nasal spray (NS; 20 mg). Response to the treatment was classified as complete, effective, or noneffective.Eleven patients, who presented with 35 attacks, were (...) treated by subcutaneous injection of sumatriptan. The treatment was responsive in 19 attacks. The efficacy of sumatriptan was high in attacks that occurred in cases with a family history of migraine compared to those without (p = .0482). Five patients were treated with sumatriptan NS for six attacks. The treatment was completely responsive in two of six attacks. We observed no adverse effects associated with sumatriptan treatment in this trial.We conclude that sumatriptan has potential efficacy

10. Survey Analysis of the Use, Effectiveness, and Patient-Reported Tolerability of Inhaled Oxygen Compared With Injectable Sumatriptan for the Acute Treatment of Cluster Headache. (PubMed)

Survey Analysis of the Use, Effectiveness, and Patient-Reported Tolerability of Inhaled Oxygen Compared With Injectable Sumatriptan for the Acute Treatment of Cluster Headache. In this secondary analysis of the Clusterbusters® Medication Use survey, the use, effectiveness, and tolerability of inhaled oxygen were investigated and compared with injectable sumatriptan. We also sought to understand the predictors of medication response.Inhaled oxygen is a mainstay abortive intervention in cluster (...) headache but is not approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Unlike injectable sumatriptan, the only FDA-approved pharmacologic intervention for cluster headache, oxygen can be used multiple times a day, which is highly relevant for a condition with numerous daily attacks. In addition to obstacles in obtaining oxygen therapy, optimal oxygen delivery (ie, mask, flow rate) is not uniformly employed in cluster headache. These factors lead to underuse and imprecise therapeutic response rates.A

11. Reduced efficacy of sumatriptan in migraine with aura vs without aura (PubMed)

Reduced efficacy of sumatriptan in migraine with aura vs without aura To determine whether acute migraine treatment outcome is different in migraine with aura compared with migraine without aura.We examined pooled outcome data for sumatriptan treatment of migraine with and without aura from the sumatriptan/naratriptan aggregate patient database. We also examined similar outcome data for inhaled dihydroergotamine (DHE) from a single, large randomized controlled study.The pooled pain-free rates 2 (...) hours postdose for sumatriptan 100 mg were significantly higher in patients treating attacks without aura (32%) compared with the group who treated attacks with aura (24%) (p < 0.001). The relative risk for pain freedom 2 hours postdose for attacks without aura was 1.33 (95% confidence interval: 1.16-1.54). The number needed to treat for 2 hours of pain freedom was 4.4 for attacks without aura and 6.2 for attacks with aura. For the clinical trial of DHE, the 2-hour pain-free rates did not differ
