Sandoz Almotriptan How to Take

Almotriptan belongs to the class of medications known as 5-hydroxytryptamine receptor agonists. Almotriptan is used to treat migraine Headaches, with or without aura (warning signs that occur before the migraine headache begins). It is not used to prevent migraine headaches or to treat any other type of migraine headache including hemiplegic (one side of the head only), ophthalmoplegic (affecting the eye area only), or basilar (at the bottom of the head only) migraine. It is not intended to be used to treat cluster headaches.

Migraine headaches are thought to be caused by the dilation (widening) of the blood vessels in the head. Almotriptan works by causing the blood vessels of the head to constrict. For most people, almotriptan eliminates or reduces the symptoms of migraine attacks including headache, nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to light and sound.

This medication may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Sandoz Almotriptan may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of Sandoz Almotriptan may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested Sandoz Almotriptan for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are taking Sandoz Almotriptan, speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking Sandoz Almotriptan without consulting your doctor.

Do not give Sandoz Almotriptan to anyone else, even if they have the same symptoms as you do. It can be harmful for people to take Sandoz Almotriptan if their doctor has not prescribed it.
