Information

Zomig Rapimelt belongs to a group of anti-migraine drugs called 5-HT1 agonists. Zomig Rapimelt is used to relieve your migraine headache and other associated symptoms of a migraine attack. Migraine headache is believed to be caused by a widening of the blood vessels in the head. Zomig Rapimelt narrows the vessels and relieves the pain and other symptoms of migraine headache. Zomig Rapimelt should not be used continuously to prevent or reduce the number of attacks you experience. Use Zomig Rapimelt only to treat an actual migraine headache attack. The usual dosage is 2.5 mg, or lower if recommended by your doctor. The Zomig Rapimelt 2.5 mg orally dispersible tablets cannot be broken in half. The dose should be taken as soon as your migraine appears, but it may be taken at any time during your migraine headache. For Zomig Rapimelt orally dispersible tablets, the blister pack should be peeled open as shown on the foil (tablets should not be pushed through the foil). The Zomig Rapimelt tablet should be placed on the tongue, where it will dissolve with the saliva. Water is not needed for the dispersible tablet. A second dose may be taken if your headache returns, but not sooner than 2 hours following the first tablet. For any attack where you have no response to the first dose, do not take a second dose without first consulting your doctor. Do not administer more than 10 mg in any 24-hour period. Before using this medication, inform your doctor if you are pregnant or planning to become pregnant, have heart or blood disease, high blood pressure, epilepsy, or liver disease.
