Description

Sumatriptan Pharmacodynamics
Sumatriptan is a specific selective agonist of 5-NT1-serotonin receptors localized mainly in blood vessels of the brain and their stimulation leads to narrowing of these vessels. Does not affect other subtypes of 5-NT-serotonin receptors (5-NT2-7). Activates the sensitivity of trigeminal nerve receptors. The therapeutic effect usually occurs 30 min after administration.
