Sumatriptan is an agonist of 5-HT1-serotonin receptors located, mainly, in the brain's blood vessels. The stimulation of these receptors leads to narrowing of blood vessels in the brain, which helps to relieve migraine and cluster headaches. It is an analog of the naturally occurring neuro-active alkaloids dimethyltryptamine, bufotenine, and 5-methoxy-dimethyltryptamine, with an N-methyl sulfonamidomethy-1 group at position C-5 on the indole ring.
