Sumatriptan is a selective 5-HT 1B/1D receptor agonist. Sumatriptan presumably exerts its therapeutic effects in the treatment of migraine and cluster headaches through agonist production at the 5-HT1B/1D receptors, at the intracranial blood vessels and sensory nerves of the trigeminal system. This results in cranial vessel constriction and inhibition of pro-inflammatory neuropeptide release.

Zembrace SymTouch is a prefilled, single-dose disposable autoinjector containing 3mg of sumatriptan.
