This study was designed to determine the efficacy and tolerability of TREXIMET (formerly known as TREXIMA) compared to placebo for the acute treatment of probable migraine, a sub-type of migraine.

Condition Intervention Phase
Migraine, Without Aura
Drug: sumatriptan succinate / naproxen sodium
Drug: Placebo
Phase 3

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment

Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Randomized, Double-blind, Placebo-controlled, Parallel-group Study to Evaluate the Efficacy and Tolerability of TREXIMA* (Sumatriptan Succinate/Naproxen Sodium) for a Single Moderate or Severe Headache in Adults Diagnosed With Probable Migraine Without Aura (ICHD-II 1.6.1) (*TREXIMET)

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Pain-Free at 2 Hours Post-dose and Sustained Pain-Free From 2-24 Hours Post-dose. [ Time Frame: 2 hours through 24 hours after Treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Pain-free was defined as a headache severity of no pain (grade 0) at 2 hours post-treatment in subjects who have not used rescue medication prior to or at the time of the assessment. Sustained pain-free response was defined as pain-free at 2 hours post-treatment through 24 hours post-treatment without rescue medicine.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Freedom From Headache Pain at 0.5, 1, and 4 Hours After Treatment [ Time Frame: 0.5, 1, and 4 hours after Treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Pain-Free is defined as post-treatment headache pain severity of none in subjects who have not used rescue medication prior to or at the time of the assessment.

  • Sustained Headache Relief 2-24 Hours After Treatment [ Time Frame: 2-24 hours after treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Sustained pain relief was defined as having pain relief (mild or no pain) at 2 hours w/o any moderate or severe pain during 2-24 hour period post-treatment, without rescue medication.

  • Headache Relief at 4, 2, 1 and 0.5 Hours After Treatment [ Time Frame: 0.5, 1, 2, and 4 hours after treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Pain relief was defined as reduction of headache pain from a baseline severity of moderate or severe to none or mild at the given time.

  • Subjects Who Used Rescue Medication From 0 - 24 Hours After Treatment [ Time Frame: 0 - 24 hours after treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Rescue medication defined as additional medication (i.e. sumatriptan/naproxen sodium as open-label rescue or other medication as permitted per protocol), taken by subject for the treatment of headache pain or other symptoms associated with the headache attack.

  • Intermediate Sustained Pain Relief: Post-dose at Intervals of 2-4 Hours and 1-2 Hours After Treatment [ Time Frame: 1-2, and 2- 4 hours after treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Intermediate sustained pain relief was defined as achieving headache pain relief (from moderate or severe pain at baseline to mild or no pain) prior to the specified timepoint (1 or 2 hours) and maintaining it to the specified timepoint (2-4 hours). (Intermediate=Intermed.)

  • Intermediate Sustained Pain-Free: Post-dose at Intervals of 2-4 Hours and 1-2 Hours [ Time Frame: 1-2 and 2-4 hours after treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Intermediate sustained pain free was defined as achieving headache pain-free (moderate or severe pain to no pain) prior to the specified timepoint (1 or 2 hours) and maintaining it to the specified timepoint (2-4 hours).(Intermediate=Intermed.)

  • Incidence of Headache Associated: Neck Pain, Sinus Pain, Photophobia, Phonophobia, Nausea at Time Intervals of 4 and 2 Hours After Treatment [ Time Frame: 2 and 4 hours after treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Neck pain, sinus pain, photophobia, phonophobia and nausea are considered headache-associated symptoms.(Headache-associated=Headache-Assoc.)

  • Medication Satisfaction: Mean Patient Perception of Migraine (PPMQ-R) Subscale Score [ Time Frame: 0 - 24 hours after treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Patient Perception of Migraine Questionnaire-Revised(PPMQ-R) evaluates subject satisfaction with treatment 24 hours post-dose using validated questions. Questions are analyzed on 4 subscale scores (efficacy, functionality, ease-of-use, and tolerability) and total score. Scores range from 0-100, with the higher scores indicating better satisfaction.
