This review is going to take a closer look at Treximet to learn more about how this product works and to see if it’s worth trying out. Treximet is a prescription medication that is made from naproxen sodium and sumatriptan and is designed to help you get relief from migraines. The manufacturer claims that their medicine is made with a triptan called sumatriptan that is combined with naproxen to offer greater pain relief when experiencing a migraine.
- Naproxen Sodium
Naproxen Sodium belongs to a group of medications called nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. It is believed to work by reducing swelling, inflammation, and pain and is generally used to relieve pain that is accompanied by inflammation. Sumatriptan belongs to a class of drugs called serotonin receptor agonists. It relieves migraines by stimulating serotonin receptors in the brain which cause the muscles surrounding the blood vessels in the brain to contract and narrow the blood vessels. It also reduces the transmission of pain signals by nerves to the brain.
The recommended dosage for adults is one tablet. The maximum recommended dosage is two tablets in a 24 hour period, taken at least two hours apart.
Treximet is not meant for people with risk factors for heart disease unless a heart exam is done and shows no problems. It is also not meant for those who have had a stroke, problems with blood circulation, hemiplegic migraine, narrowing of blood cells, uncontrolled high blood pressure, had an asthma attack or allergic reaction with aspirin, are in the third trimester of pregnancy or have liver problems. You should stop taking Terximet if you experience discomfort in the center of your chest that lasts more than a few minutes, severe tightness, pain, pressure or heaviness in your chest, throat, neck or jaw, pain or discomfort in your arms, back neck, jaw or stomach, shortness of breath, breaking out in a cold sweat, nausea or vomiting, feeling lightheaded, weakness in one part or side of your body or slurred speech.
Because Treximet is a prescription medication, the price will depend on your insurance policy and how much it covers. If you wish to purchase Treximet without insurance, a supply of nine tablets will cost around $927.

Treximet Review – Conclusion
Treximet appears to be a promising treatment for migraines. It combines naproxen sodium and sumatriptan which are more effective when combined as opposed to on their own in treating migraines and it comes in easy to take tablets for convenience. However, because Treximet is a prescription medication, it comes along with a variety of potentially dangerous side effects that can have a big impact on your overall health. Furthermore, the price to take this medication is exorbitantly high if you do not have an insurance plan. Taking these factors into consideration, choosing Treximet is risky. You are better off purchasing a natural supplement that is made from natural ingredients that will have few, if any, side effects and will be more reasonably priced.
