Migraines are the third most common disease in the word. They can be debilitating and hard to treat. With so many different treatment options it can be hard knowing which is right for you. This Treximet review is going to take a closer look at the facts and details to learn more about how this migraine treatment works and to see if it’s worth trying out for effective relief from migraines. The manufacturer claims that their medication is made with a triptan called sumatriptan that is combined with naproxen to offer greater pain relief when experiencing a migraine.
- Naproxen Sodium
Naproxen Sodium belongs to a group of medications called nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. It is believed to work by reducing swelling, inflammation, and pain and is generally used to relieve pain that is accompanied by inflammation. Sumatriptan belongs to a class of drugs called serotonin receptor agonists. It relieves migraines by stimulating serotonin receptors in the brain which cause the muscles surrounding the blood vessels in the brain to contract and narrow the blood vessels. It also reduces the transmission of pain signals by nerves to the brain.
The recommended dosage for adults is one tablet. The maximum recommended dosage is two tablets in a 24 hour period, taken at least two hours apart.

Conclusion of our Treximet Review
Treximet appears to be a promising migraine treatment. Its main ingredients have been shown to contain properties that can effectively eliminate a migraine and it comes in easy to take tablets for convenience. However, because this product is a prescription medication, it comes along with a myriad of potentially dangerous side effects. Furthermore, because it is a prescription medication, depending on your insurance policy, the cost per treatment can be exorbitantly high. You are better off trying out an effective natural option that has few, if any side effects and is affordably priced.
