Flunarizine How to Take

Flunarizine is used to prevent migraine Headaches with or without aura (warning signs that occur before the headache begins). Flunarizine should not be used for treatment of acute migraine headaches (headaches that have already started).

Flunarizine helps to reduce the frequency of migraine attacks and, to a lesser extent, the severity of the attacks. Flunarizine does not appear to have an effect on how long attacks last. The effect of flunarizine may not be seen for several weeks. Do not stop taking the medication due to lack of effect within the first six to eight weeks.

Your doctor may have suggested Flunarizine for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. As well, some forms of Flunarizine may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are taking Flunarizine, speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking Flunarizine without consulting your doctor.

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