Sumatriptan in excessive doses over 15 years in a patient with chronic cluster headache


Kallweit, U; Sándor, P S (2011). Sumatriptan in excessive doses over 15 years in a patient with chronic cluster headache. Headache: The Journal of Head and Face Pain, 51(10):1546-1548.

Abstract

We report the case of a 49-year-old lady with cluster headache, who had received sumatriptan s.c. treatment for 15 years with daily dosages between 12 and 222 mg (average of 150 mg during the last year). The therapy was successful in aborting CH attacks. Long-term overdosage of sumatriptan was well tolerated, without adverse events.
