Zolmitriptan is a popular treatment for migraines and belongs to a family of medicines called Triptans. These are not painkillers but reverse the changes in the brain believed to the cause of migraines. Zolmitriptan also works to reduce the symptoms associated with migraines, including:
  • A headache
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Light and sound sensitivity

Zolmitriptan functions by energizing the receptors in the brain known as serotonin (5HT) and constricts the blood vessels in the brain. The tightening of the blood vessels counters the widening which is believed to cause migraines. Treatment, if initiated at the onset of a migraine can help re-establish normal daily routine and may even omit the need to for additional pain medication. Zolmitriptan does not prevent future migraines or reduce the frequency of migraine occurrence.

Zolmitriptan is also available as branded Zomig, both of which equivalent in efficacy and strength 
and treats migraines in an identical manner. Zomig is available at a higher price than Zolmitriptan.
The recommended dose for Zolmitriptan is 2.5mg (one tablet) as soon as a migraine starts. For the best effects, swallow one tablet whole with water at the onset of a migraine attack. Zolmitriptan tablets can be taken with or without food, as it will not affect the activity of the medication.

A second dose can be taken if a migraine returns but only after a minimum of two hours has passed since taking the first dose. n take another pill if your migraine returns but only after a minimum of 2 hours has passed since taking the first dose. Do not take more than 2 tablets in 24 hours.

Zolmitriptan is significantly effective within forty-five minutes to an hour of taking a tablet and a dose is known to last approximately two hours.
  • Nausea
  • Dry mouth
  • Vomiting
  • Dizziness
  • A headache

Common side effects of Zolmitriptan can affect approximately one in ten people. Some symptoms may be caused by a migraine itself. You can find out more about these symptoms by speaking to your doctor or getting in touch with our experts.
