How Can Amerge (naratriptan) Help Treat Migraine Headaches?

December 4, 2008 | by DoctorSolve

Amerge (Naratriptan) is a headache medicine used to treat migraine headaches. It works by narrowing the blood vessels around the brain. Amerge, which is available to purchase at our online Canadian pharmacy, also reduces substances in the body that can trigger headache pain, nausea, sensitivity to light and sound, and other migraine symptoms.

Are You Aware That There Are Three Types of Head Aches?

1. Tension: Psychological stress or being over worked can result in a tension headache. Out of the three types of headaches, tension head aches are the most common. They are usually brought on by anxiety, lack of sleep, and stress.

2. Migraine: Ten to fifteen percent of people experience migraine headaches. They are severe and typically only affect one side of the head. They usually produce sharp pains which often lead to vomiting, nausea, or vision problems. Scientists believe that migraines are due in part to fluctuations in the blood vessels that supply blood to the brain. While they are still unsure as to what causes those fluctuations, many theorize that anger, physical and mental fatigue, and stress may contribute to migraines.

3. Sinus: A sinus headache typically results from an infection or heavy congestion in the para nasal sinuses. There are numerous causes for sinus headaches such as severe cold, a deviated nasal septum, and allergies.

Important Information:

Amerge will only treat a headache that has already begun. It will not prevent headaches or reduce the number of attacks.
