About Sansert

Sansert is still being manufactured in Canada by Sandoz Pharmaceuticals (a subsidiary of Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corporation). Although though it is no longer available in the United States, can ship Sansert to U.S. customers. Also, since Sansert is no longer available in the U.S., there are no issues with the FDA on obtaining it from a Canadian pharmacy as there are with other drugs.

How To Use:  Follow the directions for using this medication provided by your doctor or pharmacists. Take with food or milk to prevent stomach upset. Take Sansert exactly as prescribed. Do not suddenly stop taking Sansert without your doctor's approval as severe headaches can occur. It may take one to two days before the effects of Sansert are noticed. Lie down in quiet, dark room after taking Sansert. Store Sansert at room temperature away from sunlight and moisture. Do not store in the bathroom. Do not take Sansert for longer than 6 months. Do not keep outdated medicine or medicine no longer needed.

How Drug Works:  Migraine and vascular headaches are caused by the swelling and expansion of the blood vessels around the pain-sensitive nerve structures within the head (cranium). When an artery becomes distended, the delicate network of nerve fibers around it stretch and give off pain signals that may increase with each pulse. This creates the throbbing effect often associated with this type of headache. Sansert (Methysergide maleate) is a vasoconstrictor that shrinks the blood vessels and stops the spasms.

Common Dosage:  Sansert Tablet: 2 mg Some of these forms and doses may not be available at your local pharmacy. Others may not be listed in this database. Check with your doctor or pharmacist.

Reactions:  Be sure to inform your doctor and pharmacist of all prescription and OTC medications you are currently taking. Sansert (Methysergide maleate) should not be combined with monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs). This combination may cause dangerous adverse effects. Discontinuation of monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs) should occur at least two weeks before beginning therapy with Sansert (methysergide maleate). Taking this drug in combination with amphetamines, ephedrine, pseudoephedrine, or epinephrine may cause a dangerous rise in blood pressure (severe hypertension). The following drugs could cause a negative reaction or create an interference: adrenocorticoids, beta-blockers, corticotropin, antacids, anticholinergic drugs, anticoagulants, central nervous system (CNS) depressants, ketoconazole, and sumatriptan.

Side Effects:  Common side effects associated with the use of Sansert include dizziness, drowsiness, stomach upset, heartburn, sleeplessness or flushing. These effects should disappear as your body adjusts to the medication. Sansert has a tendency to cause weight gain. Inform your doctor if the side effects continue, become severe or bothersome. Contact your doctor immediately if you experience chest pain, rapid heartbeat, shortness of breath, painful urination, tingling in the hands or feet, or leg cramps. Also report any numbness, pain, tingling or cold sensation of the hands or feet. In case of suspected overdose, call your regional Poison Control Center.

Cautions:  Avoid alcohol while taking Sansert as it will only make your headache worse. Smoking can aggravate headaches. Nicotine constricts blood vessels, thus aggravating the headache. In addition, tobacco may increase the adverse effects of this drug. Inform your doctor if you have had an allergic reaction or unusual reaction to Sansert (methysergide maleate). This medication is not recommended for use during pregnancy or when breast-feeding. This drug may cause drowsiness or dizziness. Avoid driving or operating machinery while taking Sansert. Inform your doctor if you have heart disease, including angina, because of rare cases of coronary vasospasm. Inform your doctor if you have high blood pressure (hypertension). It may aggravate the condition. Nitrite causes dilation of the blood vessels inside the skull. Certain foods containing nitrates may contribute to your headaches. Nitrite is present in sausages and cured meats. There is some evidence that low blood sugar triggers headaches. Be sure to follow a healthy diet. Eat several small meals if you suffer from hypoglycemia (low blood sugar).
