    • Usually, cluster headaches and migraines are a result of vasodilatation i.e. dilatation of blood vessels in the brain. Hence, it is essential to constrict the blood vessels in order to relieve pain in head, and Generic Imitrex (Sumatriptan) does the same. It has an antagonistic effect on certain receptors that are present in central nervous system. By inhibiting these receptors, Sumatriptan releases the intracranial pressure from blood vessels and sensory nerves, thereby constricting the blood vessels and suppressing the inflammation. This is how Generic Imitrex works in eliminating migraine and cluster headaches.
