More information about Naratriptan

What is Naratriptan?

Naratriptan, sold under the brand name Naramig, is an effective treatment for migraine attacks. It is particularly effective for moderate and long-lasting migraine attacks.

It works by narrowing the blood vessels in the brain and reducing nerve signals that cause pain. It is a 2.5mg tablet that you can buy online at HealthExpress.

How does Naratriptan work?

Naratriptan belongs to a class of medicines called Triptans. These medicines work by mimicking the brain chemical serotonin.

They bind to the serotonin receptors in the brain. This relieves the symptoms of migraine in two main ways.

During a migraine, the blood vessels in your brain dilate which causes pain. Naratriptan reverses this effect, narrowing the blood vessels and reducing the pain.

It also combats overactive nerve signals that cause pain in the brain during a migraine attack.

Who can and cannot take Naratriptan?

Naratriptan (Naramig) is suitable for most adults with migraine symptoms. You should not use Naratriptan to prevent migraines from occurring.

Some people with certain health conditions should not take it as they are at a greater risk of side effects.

Do not take Naratriptan if you:

  • are allergic to naratriptan
  • have a heart problem (e.g. angina or heart failure)
  • have had a heart attack, stroke or mini-stroke
  • have circulation problems in your legs
  • have high blood pressure
  • have kidney or liver disease
  • are under the age of 18

Your doctor will also want to check your heart before using this medicine if you are more at risk of heart problems.

Risk factors include:

  • heavy smoking or using nicotine replacement therapy
  • being a man over the age of 40
  • being a woman who has been through menopause

Discuss it with your doctor or pharmacist before using Naratriptan if you fall under any of these risk factors.

Can you take Naratriptan whilst pregnant or breastfeeding?

It is not advised to take Naratriptan whilst pregnant. Not much research has been done into the effects of Naratriptan during pregnancy.

You should not breastfeed after taking Naratriptan. You should wait 24 hours after taking a tablet before breastfeeding again.

How do I take Naratriptan?

Take one 2.5 mg tablet as soon as you feel a migraine coming on. It is most effective if you take it as soon as possible, but you can take it any time during a migraine attack.

  • take one 2.5 mg tablet as soon as you feel a migraine coming on
  • take another 2.5 mg tablet if your symptoms come back within 4 hours*
  • do not take another tablet if the first one doesn’t work
  • do not take more than 2 tablets within 24 hours

*If you have mild to moderate kidney or liver damage, do not take more than 1 tablet within 24 hours.

Taking too much Naratriptan may cause side effects. If you take more than the maximum dose, consult your doctor or pharmacist for advice.

Does Naratriptan react with other medicines?

Naratriptan can interact with other medicines. Do not take Naratriptan if you take:

  • other triptans (sumatriptan, almotriptan, zolmitriptan or rizatriptan)
  • ergotamine (for migraine treatment)
  • antidepressants (e.g. citalopram, fluoxetine, bupropion or venlafaxine)
  • St John’s Wort (a herbal remedy)
  • tapentadol (for pain relief)

Always ask your doctor before starting Naratriptan if you take any other medicines.

What are the side effects of Naratriptan?

Naratriptan can cause some side effects. However, the most common side effects are mild and go away without treatment.

Common side effects of Naratriptan include:

  • dizziness
  • drowsiness
  • tiredness
  • feeling hot
  • feeling or being sick

  • pain in the lower left side of the stomach with bloody diarrhoea
