Details

What Is Zolmitriptan?
Zolmitriptan is a popular migraine treatment, which belongs to a class of medications known as triptans. Triptans are not the same as pain killers, instead they work by reversing the changes in the brain which can cause migraines. By reversing these changes, Zolmitriptan works to treat the cause of the migraine as well as reducing the symptoms.

How does Zolmitriptan Work?
Zolmitriptan works by stimulating receptors called serotonin (or 5HT) receptors that are found in the brain, which causes the blood vessels in the brain to contract. The narrowing of the blood vessels reverses the widening, which is thought to be one of the causes of migraines.

Dosage instructions
Take ONE tablet at onset of migraine. Repeat dose after at least 2 hours if required. Repeat dose NOT to be taken if first dose did not work. Max 10mg daily.
