Trade Name:  Imitrex Nasal Spray
Generic Name or Proper Name (*):  sumatriptan
Indications Studied:  Migraine
Label Changes Summary:  * Five clinical trials evaluating oral sumatriptan in pediatric patients ages 12 -17 years did not establish the safety and effectiveness when compared to placebo * Postmarketing experience documents that serious AEs rarely reported in adults, including stroke, visual loss, and death have occurred in the pediatric population after use of subcutaneous, oral, and/ or nasal sumatriptan. * Since clinical data to determine the frequency of serious adverse events in pediatric patients who might receive injectable, oral, and/ or intranasal sumatriptan are not presently available, the use of sumatriptan in patients aged younger than 18 years is not recommended
