According to Dr Anil Namboodiripad, PhD, President, Promius Pharma, “TOSYMRA nasal spray is formulated using a proprietary novel excipient known as Intravail to achieve blood levels similar to a 4-mg sumatriptan subcutaneous injection, resulting in rapid onset of action.
Independent research shows that 26% to 40% of migraine patients are not optimally controlled with their current treatment.1 For patients who suffer from the debilitating and disruptive effects of a migraine, there continues to be a need for reliable and efficacious treatment options. At Promius, we are committed to developing new ways of improving patient experiences. TOSYMRA is a mist-like nasal spray that acts rapidly and is well tolerated.”
