It's another -trptan 5HT drug, looks like. They have to prove its remarkable performance over the established base of Imitrex and the other 5-HT receptor drugs.

Also bear in mind that all drugs of this class carry a substantial risk of sudden, unexpected fatal episodes from MI and stroke, even in patients without previous history of cardiovascular disease.

Since all the 5-HT's began coming out, I looked with a jaundiced eye at their warnings and side effects, and said "not me".

Preventive therapy with SR Ca channel blockers, acute therapy with potent analgetics, antiemetics, and sedatives if necessary is still my personal choice as a patient.
