Brief Summary:

The purpose of this research study is to evaluate an investigational auto-injector system for delivering sumatriptan under the skin for a single migraine attack.

The study could take approximately 5 weeks and will include about 3 office visits to the study doctor, the patient will be contacted every 2 weeks until the patient experiences a migraine and uses the auto-injector. The last visit will be done by a telephone follow-up call.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Migraine Drug: "Investigational"Auto-injector (sumatriptan succinate) Phase 3

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Successful administration and acceptability of self-injection of sumatriptan under the skin using an investigational auto-injector will be assessed by use of patient-completed scales and a short questionnaire.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. • Comparison of pain scores pre-dose and 2 hours post-dose. • Preference of investigational auto-injector experience compared to subject's previous self-administration of sumatriptan.
