Treximet is a prescription drug used to treat migraine headaches. It contains sumatriptan, which constricts blood vessels around the brain and reduces bodily triggers of migraine symptoms like pain, nausea, and sensitivity to light and sound. This medication also contains naproxen, an NSAID that reduces pain and inflammation throughout the body. Treximet is meant to treat migraines that have already begun, and won’t prevent one from happening.

Do not take Treximet within 24 hours of another migraine medication.
