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?

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.
