Eletriptan vs Sumatriptan: A Double-blind, Placebo-controlled, Multiple Migraine Attack Study
A Multicentre, Double Blind, Double Dummy, Parallel Group, Placebo Controlled, Study of Two Dose Levels of Oral Eletriptan and Two Dose Levels Oral Sumatriptan Given for the Acute Treatment of Migraine(With and Without Aura).
A previously published, placebo-controlled, head-to-head comparator study found eletriptan to have superior efficacy to oral sumatriptan 100 mg in treating a single acute migraine attack. The goal of the current study was to extend the findings of that study by examining the efficacy of eletriptan compared with both 50- and 100-mg doses of sumatriptan; and to evaluate the comparative efficacy of eletriptan and sumatriptan across additional important clinical outcomes. In particular, early response (at 1 hour), sustained response (without need for additional treatment) at 24 hours, and consistency of response across multiple attacks were examined.
