It seems from the history that your partner is having cold, chills and headache.
This indicates that he is having respiratory tract infection. Sumatriptan is very effective analgesic, it is active against headache caused by primary headaches like migraine.
In this case this appears to be because of respiratory tract infection. Hence he requires treatment by the use of antibiotics, decongestants and mucolytics.

Hence I advice you to consult your doctor for examination and treatment accordingly.

Thank you
