Why is this medication prescribed?

Sumatriptan is an antimigraine medicine. Migraine headaches are believed to result from dilatation of the blood vessels in the head. Sumatriptan causes constriction of the blood vessels, thus relieving migraine headache. 

This medicine is usually used for people whose headaches are not relieved by acetaminophen, aspirin, or other pain relievers.

Despite that sumatriptan is highly effective in relieving migraines, it unfortunately does not prevent or reduce the number of attacks.
