Zomig (Zolmitriptan)

Zomig is a medicine used to relieve and treat migraine attacks. Zomig belongs to a group of medicines called triptans and contain the active ingredient zolmitriptan.

This medication may be prescribed to adults when they are showing symptoms which indicate they have a migraine. Migraine attacks can be very painful and distressing and prevent those who suffer them from completing any work or other activities. But a treatment like zomig can help a lot with easing the pain and make it much easier to go about your day in a more normal manner. Zomig is a branded version of migraine treatment. Patients can alternatively get zolmitriptan as a generic medication.

Branded vs Generic What's the difference?

Generic Name - Each medicine has an approved name called the generic name. A group of medicines that have similar actions often have similar-sounding generic names. For examples, phenoxymethlpenicillin, ampicillin, amoxicillin and flucloxacillin are in one group of antibiotics.

Brand (Trade) Name - Many medicines also have one or more bran names. This is chosen by the company that makes it. Several companies may make the same generic medicine, each with their own brand name. The name is often chosen to be memorable for advertising, or to be easier to say of spell than the generic name. For example, paracetamol is a generic name. There are several companies that make this with the brand names such as Panadol, Calpol etc

What is Zomig and what does it do?

Zomig is a medicine used to relieve and treat migraine attacks. Zomig belongs to a group of medicines called triptans and contain the active ingredient zolmitriptan.

Zomig works by reducing the swelling and widening of blood vessels in the brain. The tablets are swallowed whole with water and usually start to work within an hour.

When is Zomig prescribed?

Zomig may be prescribed to adults who have been diagnosed with migraine. It is suitable for relieving the headache phase of migraine and is taken when a migraine attack has started.

Please note, zomig tablets only work when a migraine attack has already started. Do not take zomig to try to prevent a potential future attack.

Is Zomig suitable for my condition?

If you have been diagnosed with a migraine, then you may be prescribed zomig, assuming you’re not taking any other medicines that may interact with it. Certain medical conditions may also affect the suitability of this treatment.

It is vital that you let our doctors know about any medicines and medical conditions you may have when you request your prescription. Please include this information in the online medical consultation which you’ll need to complete before completing an order on Doctor-4-U.

Zomig tablets are not suitable if any of the below applied to you:

  • You are below the age of 18
  • If you are allergic to zolmitriptan or any of the other ingredients listed in the patient information leaflet
  • If you have high blood pressure
  • If you have or have had any heart problems, such as heart attack or angina
  • If you have ever had a stroke
  • If you are taking any other medicines to treat migraine

Please note, the above is not a complete list. Always read the patient information leaflet before use.

What is the recommended dosage of Zomig?

You should follow the doctor’s instructions on how to take this medicine. The doses outlined below are for your reference only. The recommended dose of Zomig is 2.5mg taken as soon as your migraine starts to develop. Swallow the tablet whole with a glass of water. Never exceed 2 doses (10mg) in any 24-hour period.

If the tablet does not provide relief, or if the migraine is coming back, a second tablet can be taken after no sooner than 2 hours later.

Does Zomig cause any side effects?

Yes, just like all medicines, Zomig tablets may cause you side effects. However, the susceptibility to side effects varies and not everyone will get them. Always read the patient information leaflet before use and familiarise yourself with the section about side effects.

Common side effects associated with taking Zomig include the following:

  • Feeling sleepy or dizzy
  • Uneven heartbeat (palpitations)
  • Stomach pain
  • Dry mouth
  • Muscle weakness or muscle pain
  • Heaviness or tightness in the chest, throat or other body parts
  • Abnormal sensations such as tingling in your fingers and toes or skin which is sensitive to touch
  • Headaches
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Problems swallowing

The above is not a complete list of side effects. Please read the patient information leaflet for a detailed breakdown of side effects. Contact your GP or nearest clinic immediately if you notice any signs of an allergic reaction.

Can I reduce the risk of getting side effects?

Yes, you can reduce the risk of side effects by letting our doctors know about any other medicines you may take. Please include details of any other medicines you take when filling in the online medical questionnaire.

How do I buy Zomig online?

Our online doctor service enables you to request a private prescription through an online medical questionnaire. Once you have submitted the questionnaire and chosen your medicine, the order will be assessed by one of our doctors.

How is my order shipped to me?
