Side Effects of Sumatriptan/Naproxen Sodium

Common Side Effects of Sumatriptan/Naproxen Sodium

Sumatriptan/naproxen sodium has been thoroughly studied in clinical trials. In these studies, the side effects that occurred in a group of people taking the drug were documented and then compared to the side effects that occurred in another group of people taking a placebo (a "sugar pill" that does not contain any active ingredients). As a result, it was possible to see what side effects occurred, how often they appeared, and how they compared to the group not taking the medicine.
 
In these studies, the most common sumatriptan/naproxen sodium side effects included:
 
  • Dizziness -- in up to 4 percent of people
  • Drowsiness -- up to 3 percent
  • Nausea -- up to 3 percent
  • Chest pain or discomfort -- up to 3 percent
  • Neck, throat, or jaw pain tightness, or pressure -- up to 3 percent
  • Indigestion or heartburn -- up to 2 percent
  • Dry mouth -- up to 2 percent (see Treximet and Dry Mouth)
  • Unusual sensations, such as burning, tingling, or numbness -- up to 2 percent.
     

Rare Sumatriptan/Naproxen Sodium Side Effects

There are other possible sumatriptan/naproxen sodium side effects that can occur. These side effects occurred in 1 percent or fewer of people taking sumatriptan/naproxen sodium. For these side effects, it is difficult to tell whether they are actually caused by sumatriptan/naproxen sodium or something else.
 
Some of these rare but possible sumatriptan/naproxen sodium side effects include, but are not limited to:
