Treximet is a medicine used in the treatment of migraines. Treximet is not used to prevent a migraine attack, as it only takes effect in the presence of a migraine. Treximet is composed of two active ingredients - sumatriptan and naproxen. Sumatriptan narrows blood vessels within the brain, whereas naproxen works as a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that reduces pain, fever, and swelling.
Naproxen disrupts the inflammatory process by inhibiting enzymes called COX, both COX-1 and COX-2. For sumatriptan to take effect, it has to activate serotonin receptors in the brain. Common side effects with Treximet include dizziness, drowsiness, numbness, dry mouth, and tight muscles.
