Zembrace SymTouch was approved by FDA last year (2016). There are lots of reasons for you to consider this surprising advance in migraine treatment.
At first glance, it may appear like retooling of an old migraine treatment-triptan (sumatriptan). You may be surprised to note that it is in the form of injection and will give you less of medicine than you’ve tried in the past. If you have injections, this is a big NO……NO for you!
For some, taking an injection is a habit, as easy as eating brussel sprouts. You know it’s good for you, and you want a speedy migraine treatment. So injection can be your best bet.
Some migraine patients suffer from various forms of gastric stasis, which means that pills simply fail to get medication to your system properly. So all those who’ve tried triptans through oral methods and have failed to get results, you may find Zembrace SymTouch to be a much better option.
When it comes to injections, the option presented by Zembrace is really cutting edge. It’s available in the form of single use “pen” with precise medication you need built in. It also boasts of thinnest needle of all available autoinejectors.
It’s super-easy operation means, it’s really hard to make any mistake. It’s quick, and shows effects in seconds, so you will have medication working in just 10 minutes (many start experiencing pain relief within 30 minutes or less).
The company’s website (www.zembrace.com) say’s…
“You can get migraine pain relief with 3 mg sumatriptan in as little as 10 minutes (17% vs 5% for placebo).”
The maximum permissible injected dose within 24 hours is 12 mg, with doses separated by at least an hour. It can also be given at least an hour following a dose of another sumpartriptan product.
Definitely, a bold statement! Isn’t it?
As you know, a slightly different triptan, or even a different “version” of same triptan can make the desired difference. So it’s not surprising if you’ve tried sumartriptan earlier without much success, because this time it is available in different formulation and can work.
Actually, studies carried out with 3 mg dosage produced results compared with 6 mg dosage (oral pills). It was found that 3mg performed even better. Patients experienced less side effects in the long-run.
So Zembrace SymTouch is definitely worth a look if you’re down with migraine or cluster headache. It’s not only easy to use, it also uses the latest technology for treating the disorder with much better results.
