Oral therapy may not be the optimal treatment for every migraine. See why Tosymra® uses the novel ingredient Intravail®.

Tosymra® achieved peak plasma concentration

8x faster than Imitrex® nasal spray4

Mean sumatriptan plasma concentration-time profile

Results from a randomized, crossover, pilot pharmacokinetic study conducted in 18 healthy adults.4 In this study, three AEs occurred with Tosymra® (vomiting, paresthesia and burning sensation in nose). Three AEs occurred with Imitrex® (sumatriptan) 20 mg nasal spray (nausea and throat irritation [two events]). All events were mild or moderate in intensity.5


Tosymra® uses the science of Intravail®

Tosymra® is the first and only triptan nasal spray to use the novel ingredient Intravail® to enhance drug absorption across the nasal mucosa.6

Controlled transient permeation of the nasal mucosa6

Intravail® is thought to facilitate paracellular absorption by transiently relaxing tight junctions, allowing drug access to systemic circulation, among other mechanisms.6-8

Nasal mucosa

Tosymra® is a sumatriptan nasal spray with mist-like administration

The safety profile of Tosymra® is generally consistent with that of subcutaneous injectable sumatriptan.


Most common adverse reactions (≥5% and > placebo) with sumatriptan injection were tingling, dizziness/vertigo, warm/hot sensation, burning sensation, feeling of heaviness, pressure sensation, flushing, feeling of tightness, and numbness.

Additional common adverse reactions with Tosymra® include the local irritative symptoms of application site reaction, dysgeusia, and throat irritation.


In a 6-month open-label, repeat-dose safety study designed to assess the safety and tolerability of Tosymra® in 167 adult patients, Tosymra® was well-tolerated, with a low rate of triptan-related adverse events (TEAEs).9 Over the course of the 6-month study, 3,292 doses of Tosymra® were used to treat 2,211 migraine attacks.10
