Sumatriptan injections for cluster headaches, does that interact with Zofran (ondansetron)? & does sumatriptan also have the ability to prevent nausea and vomiting?

No interaction: Wanted to clarify your questions as I seriously doubt you have cluster headaches, which occur in middle aged men, and is a very specific syndrome.
