General Information on Treximet
Treximet is a medication that contains two active ingredients with the generic names naproxen and sumatriptan. While sumatriptan is a headache medication, naproxen belong to the drug class known as NSAIDs or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.
You can buy Treximet online for the treatment of migraine headaches. Treximet works in two ways- sumatriptan narrows the blood vessels that surround the brain and naproxen reduces the action of hormones responsible for pain and inflammation in the body.
It is important for you to understand that you can buy Treximet only for treating headaches that have already started. It cannot be used for preventing attacks or reducing their frequency.
Side effects of Treximet
You cannot take two tablets of Treximet within a period of 24 hours. This may result in an overdose, signs of which include the following:
- Coughing up blood
- Bloody or black stools
- Breathing problems
- Stomach pain
You would need immediate medical intervention if you suffer from an overdose of Treximet. Other serious side effects caused by Treximet include the following:

- Severe redness, peeling, or blistering of skin

You can buy Treximet in the form of oral tablets, each of which contains sumatriptan 85mg and naproxen 500mg. The dosage and treatment schedule will be determined only by your doctor. Do not take a larger dosage of Treximet than what was prescribed, as it may worsen your migraine headaches.
You may take one tablet of Treximet when you notice symptoms of a migraine headache or once the attack has begun. This medication may be taken irrespective of whether you had meals or not.
Treximet is known to interact with several medications. As a result, you cannot take Treximet for a period of 24 hours before and after taking the following drugs:
- Ergot medications such as ergotamine, dihydroergotamine and methylergonovine
You must tell your doctor about all the medications you are taking before you buy Treximet. A lot of combination medications have drugs in them that work like naproxen, such as ketoprofen or ibuprofen. By taking such medications along with Treximet, you are increasing your risk of an overdose. You must be careful while choosing any medication and check beforehand if it contains naproxen, ketoprofen, ibuprofen or aspirin.

What is a "Generic" medication/drug?
Generic drugs are medications that have the comparable medicinal ingredients as the original brand name drug, but which are generally cheaper in price. Nearly 1 in 3 drugs dispensed are "generic". They undergo comparative testing to ensure that they are the same as their "brand" counterparts in:
- Active Ingredient (e.g. "Pravastatin" is the active ingredient in brand name Pravachol)
- Dosage (e.g. 10 mg of the active ingredient)
- Safety (e.g. same or similar side effects, drug interactions)
- Performance (e.g. 10 mg of a "generic" can be substituted for 10 mg of the "brand" and have the same therapeutic result)
- Intended use (e.g. both "generic" and "brand" would be prescribed for the same conditions)
What this means is that "generic" medications can be used as a substitute of their brand equivalents with comparable therapeutic results. There are a few exceptions (examples are outlined at the end of this page) and as always you should consult your physician before switching from a brand name medications to a generic or vice versa.
What differences are there between generic and brand?
While generics and brand equivalent drugs contain comparable active ingredients, they may be different in the following ways:
- Appearance (e.g. the scoring or markings)
The color, shape and size of the medication come from the fillers that are added to the active ingredients to make the drug. These fillers that are added to the drug have no medical use and do not to change the effectiveness of the final product. A generic drug must contain comparable active ingredients and must be comparable in strength and dosage to the original brand name equivalent. Generic drugs can be more cost effective than purchasing the brand name.
Why do generics cost less than the brand name equivalents?
When a new drug is "invented", the company that discovered it has a patent on it that gives them the exclusive production rights for this medication. Once the patent expires in a country, other companies can bring the product to market under their own name. This patent prevents other companies from copying the drug during that time so they can earn back their Research and Development costs through being the exclusive supplier of the product. After the patent expires however, other companies can develop a "generic" version of the product. These versions generally are offered at much lower prices because the companies do not have the same development costs as the original company who developed the medication.
The main thing to realize here though is that the two products are therapeutically comparable. They may look different, and be called something different, but they are required to be have the same active ingredient.
How are Generic drugs tested to ensure quality and efficacy?
The two most generally accepted methods to prove the safety of a generic version of a drug are to either repeat most of the chemistry, animal and human studies originally done, or to show that the drug performs comparably with the original brand name drug. This second option is called a "comparative bioavailability" study. During this type of study, volunteers are given the original drug, and then separately later the generic drug. The rates at which the drug is delivered to the patient (into their blood stream or otherwise absorbed) are measured to ensure they are the same. Because the same active ingredient is used the major concern is just that it delivers the common chemical(s) at the same rate so that they have the same effect. Please note that the methods that the manufacturers use may vary from country to country.
