More information about Zomig
Zolmitriptan, often sold under the brand 'Zomig', is a migraine medication that is designed to deliver instant relief from a migraine attack. You take it when you feel the symptoms developing during the main headache stage, it does not work as a preventative. You should only take this treatment if you have been diagnosed with migraine by a medical professional.
Here at HealthExpress, you can buy both Zolmitriptan (Zomig) tablets and nasal spray for migraine treatment.
The active ingredient of the same, Zolmitriptan, belongs to a group of medications known as ‘triptans’ or selective serotonin receptor agonists (5-HT1 agonists), alongside Sumatriptan (Imigran), Almotriptan (Almirall), Naratriptan and Rizatriptan. They all work in exactly the same way.
Triptans work to ease the symptoms of a migraine attack including nausea, headache and sensitivity to light and sound. Zomig and other triptans work by stimulating serotonin, a neurotransmitter (chemical messenger in the brain). This reduces inflammation and constricts the blood vessels in the brain, as migraine is believed to be caused by swelling of the brain’s blood vessels.
You can take Zolmitriptan the form of tablets, orodispersible tablets or a nasal spray for those who struggle to swallow tablets during a migraine attack. They are all effective in treating migraine, but you must take them as soon as symptoms start or once the migraine attack is underway. However, you cannot use Zolmitriptan to prevent migraines occurring.
It’s important you take Zolmitriptan exactly as prescribed. The maximum dosage is 10mg. If you exceed that dose, please seek immediate medical advice even if you don’t feel unwell. Full instructions for both the tablets and the nasal spray can be found in the respective patient information leaflet, available in the box with your medication or to download online.
Zolmitriptan tablets are available in a 2.5 or 5 mg dose.
The Zolmitriptan nasal spray is available in a 5mg dose.
Please read the instructions and refer to the diagrams in the patient information leaflet carefully before applying.
