Apo Frovatriptan How to Take

Frovatriptan belongs to a class of medications known as 5-hydroxytryptamine agonists (also called triptans). It is used to treat migraine Headaches with or without aura (warning signs that occur prior to the onset of a migraine) in adults. The pain of migraine headaches is thought to be caused by dilated blood vessels inside the head. Frovatriptan relieves migraine headaches by constricting these blood vessels.

Frovatriptan is not recommended for other types of headache or for headache prevention.
