Sumavel DosePro Approved by FDA for Acute Migraine and Cluster Headache: First Product Featuring Novel DosePro Needle-Free Delivery System
Before Sumavel DosePro, sumatriptan was available in an injection, nasal spray and pill. Delivery mechanisms that avoid the stomach are preferable for most migraineurs because of nausea and vomitting.
Injections are usually the quickest method of getting treatment medication into the body, but many people are scared of or intimidated by needles. Now those people will have an option that provides the same benefits with almost none of the drawbacks. The one thing that might make it less desirable is that sumatriptan injections are now available in a generic, which saves patients money. Since this product is a new technology, it will be more expensive.
