Sandoz Zolmitriptan How to Take

Zolmitriptan 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 headache). The pain of migraine headaches is thought to be caused by dilated blood vessels inside the head. Zolmitriptan relieves migraine headaches by constricting these blood vessels.

Zolmitriptan is not recommended for other types of headache or for headache prevention. In most people, zolmitriptan eliminates or reduces the symptoms of migraines including headache, nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to light and sound.

Sandoz Zolmitriptan may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms.

Sandoz Zolmitriptan Dosage

The recommended adult dose is a single dose of 2.5 mg. If the migraine headache returns, the dose may be repeated after 2 hours. You should not take a total dose of more than 10 mg in any 24-hour period. If a dose has not helped your headache at all, do not take a second dose without first consulting a doctor.

Zolmitriptan tablets should be taken whole with water at the first sign of a migraine headache, but they can be taken at any time during a migraine headache. You may also split the tablets in half if your doctor has recommended that you do this to get a lower dose.

Many things can affect the dose of medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications.
