Relpax How to Take

Relpax (Eletriptan) belongs to the class of medications known as 5-hydroxytryptamine receptor agonists. Relpax (Eletriptan) is used to treat migraine Headaches with or without aura (warning signs that occur before the migraine headache begins) in adults. 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.

Migraine headaches are thought to be caused by the dilation (widening) of the blood vessels in the head. Relpax (Eletriptan) works by causing the blood vessels of the head to constrict. For most people, Relpax (Eletriptan) eliminates or reduces the symptoms of migraine attacks including headache, nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to light and sound. Most people notice an effect within 2 hours after taking the medication.

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

Your doctor may have suggested Relpax (Eletriptan) 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 Relpax (Eletriptan), speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking Relpax (Eletriptan) without consulting your doctor.

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

Relpax Dosage

The recommended adult dose of Relpax (Eletriptan) is one 20 mg or 40 mg tablet taken at the first sign of a migraine headache. If your headache improves but returns after an initial dose of 20 mg, an additional 20 mg dose may be taken but no sooner than 2 hours after the first dose.

If the initial dose of 20 mg is not effective at all, a second dose will not likely be helpful. If the initial dose is 40 mg, a second dose is not recommended. The maximum dose of Relpax (Eletriptan) is 40 mg per day. If you need to treat more than 3 headaches in a 30-day period, talk with your doctor.

Swallow the tablet whole with water. Do not crush, chew, or split the tablets.

Many things can affect the dose of medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way that you are taking the medication without consulting your doctor.

It is important that Relpax (Eletriptan) be taken exactly as prescribed by your doctor.

Store Relpax (Eletriptan) at room temperature, protect from heat, light, and moisture, and keep it out of reach of children.

Do not dispose of medications in wastewater (e.g. down the sink or in the toilet) or in household garbage. Ask your pharmacist how to dispose of medications that are no longer needed or have expired.

If you are taking any of these medications, speak with your doctor or pharmacist. Depending on your specific circumstances, your doctor may want you to:

  • stop taking one of the medications,
  • change one of the medications to another,
  • change how you are taking one or both of the medications, or
  • leave everything as is.

An interaction between two medications does not always mean that you must stop taking one of them. Speak to your doctor about how any drug interactions are being managed or should be managed.

Medications other than those listed above may interact with Relpax (Eletriptan). Tell your doctor or prescriber about all prescription, over-the-counter (non-prescription), and herbal medications that you are taking. Also tell them about any supplements you take. Since caffeine, alcohol, the Nicotine from cigarettes, or street drugs can affect the action of many medications, you should let your prescriber know if you use them.

Relpax Warnings

Before you begin using a medication, be sure to inform your doctor of any medical conditions or Allergies you may have, any medications you are taking, whether you are pregnant or breast-feeding, and any other significant facts about your health. These factors may affect how you should use Relpax (Eletriptan).

Blood pressure: Relpax (Eletriptan) may increase blood pressure. If you have uncontrolled high blood pressure, do not take Relpax (Eletriptan).

Drowsiness/reduced alertness: Relpax (Eletriptan) may cause dizziness or drowsiness affecting your ability to safely drive or operate machinery. Avoid these and other hazardous tasks until you have determined how Relpax (Eletriptan) affects you.

Headache type: Relpax (Eletriptan) should only be used where there is a clear diagnosis of migraine headache.

Heart and blood vessel problems: Relpax (Eletriptan) can cause serious heart and blood vessel problems, including heart attack, stroke, and extremely high blood pressure that requires emergency treatment. If you have heart disease or a history of heart disease, do not take Relpax (Eletriptan) (see "Who should not take Relpax (Eletriptan)?" above). Talk to your doctor if you have any concerns.

It is strongly recommended that you not use Relpax (Eletriptan) if you are at risk for, but have not been diagnosed with, heart disease, unless an examination shows that you do not have heart disease. People at risk for heart disease include those with high blood pressure, High Cholesterol, Diabetes, or a strong family history of heart disease; people who smoke or are obese; women in early or natural Menopause; and men over 40 years old. If you belong to one of these groups of people, your doctor may also recommend regular heart checkups while you are taking Relpax (Eletriptan).

Kidney Disease: If you have decreased kidney function, doses of more than 20 mg of Relpax (Eletriptan) daily should be avoided, as Relpax (Eletriptan) may cause severe increases in blood pressure.

Liver disease: Liver disease or reduced liver function may cause Relpax (Eletriptan) to build up in the body, causing side effects. If you have reduced liver function, discuss with your doctor how Relpax (Eletriptan) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Relpax (Eletriptan), and whether any special monitoring is needed. Your doctor may want to test your liver function regularly with blood tests while you are taking Relpax (Eletriptan). If you have severely reduced liver function, do not use Relpax (Eletriptan).

Medication overuse headaches: As with other pain relief medications, overuse of Relpax (Eletriptan) may lead to medication overuse headaches, or "rebound headaches," where the headache returns as the medication wears off. Avoid taking more of Relpax (Eletriptan) than is recommended by your doctor. If you experience more frequent headaches, contact your doctor as soon as possible.

Seizures: There have been rare reports of seizures experienced by people taking Relpax (Eletriptan). Most of these people had a previous history of Epilepsy or medical conditions that increase the risk of seizures. If you have a history of epilepsy or any condition that increases your risk of seizure, discuss with your doctor how Relpax (Eletriptan) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Relpax (Eletriptan), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Serotonin syndrome: Relpax (Eletriptan) may cause a rare but potentially life-threatening condition called serotonin syndrome, especially when used with other medications that increase serotonin levels (e.g., Fluoxetine, Paroxetine, Venlafaxine). Get immediate medical attention if you experience symptoms such as:

  • agitation
  • confusion
  • diarrhea
  • hallucinations
  • fast heart rate
  • Fever
  • increased body temperature
  • lack of coordination
  • overactive reflexes
  • nausea
  • vomiting
