TREXIMET tablets are indicated for the acute treatment of migraine attacks, with or without aura, in adults. Carefully consider the potential benefits and risks of TREXIMET and other treatment options when deciding to use TREXIMET. TREXIMET is not intended for the prophylactic therapy of migraine or for use in the management of hemiplegic or basilar migraine. Safety and effectiveness of TREXIMET have not been established for cluster headache.
TREXIMET tablets contain 85 mg sumatriptan and 500 mg naproxen sodium.
Cardiovascular Risk: TREXIMET may cause an increased risk of serious cardiovascular thrombotic events, myocardial infarction, and stroke, which can be fatal. This risk may increase with duration of use. Patients with cardiovascular disease or risk factors for cardiovascular disease may be at greater risk (see WARNINGS in complete Prescribing Information).
Gastrointestinal Risk: TREXIMET contains a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). NSAID-containing products cause an increased risk of serious gastrointestinal adverse events including bleeding, ulceration, and perforation of the stomach or intestines, which can be fatal. These events can occur at any time during use and without warning symptoms. Elderly patients are at greater risk for serious gastrointestinal (GI) events (see WARNINGS in complete Prescribing Information).
