WHAT IS ZOMIG?
Zomig contains the active ingredient Zolmitriptan which is a 5HT1 receptor antagonist used in some patients who suffer from a clear diagnosis of migraine attacks that do not respond adequately to analgesic medications.
HOW DOES ZOMIG WORK?
Zomig is used to treat an acute migraine attack (with or without an aura), through acting on 5HT1 receptors in the brain to help deal with factors that contribute towards the development of a migraine attack such as blood flow and trigeminal nerve activity.
HOW DO I TAKE ZOMIG?
Zomig should be taken at a dose of 2.5mg repeated after 2 hours if migraine recurs (however 5mg can be taken for subsequent attacks in patients not achieving satisfactory relief with the 2.5mg dose). It is advisable to be taken as early as possible at the onset of an attack. If you do not respond to the first dose, it is unlikely that the second dose will be beneficial for treating the same attack. No more than 10mg or two doses should be taken in a 24-hour period.
