Triptan

Drug class

About

Thing
Triptans are a family of tryptamine-based drugs used as abortive medication in the treatment of migraines and cluster headaches. This drug class was first introduced in the 1990s. While effective at treating individual headaches, they do not provide preventive treatment and are not considered a cure. They are not effective for the treatment of tension–type headache, except in persons who also experience migraines. Triptans do not relieve other kinds of pain.

Mentions

The Food and Drug Administration approved Ubrelvy, the company’s ubrogepant treatment, on Monday. The oral medication is aimed at treating migraines in patients who are unresponsive to common migraine treatments, such as triptans, or are at risk of cardiovascular disorders. Allergan, which anticipated a December approval by the FDA, said Ubrelvy will be available for sale in the U.S. in the first quarter.

Some migraines can be treated with over-the-counter medications such as ibuprofen, acetaminophen or aspirin, if taken at the first signs of a migraine occurring. When these aren't effective, the most commonly prescribed treatment is a class of drugs called triptans, which are considered more effective than ubrogepant but have a catch: They work by constricting blood vessels around the brain to stop the pain, so they are not considered safe for use by people at risk of cardiovascular disease and stroke. The newly approved drug, on the other hand, has a different molecular target -- a protein involved in the transmission of pain.
